Zelda: A Link Between Worlds Is Coming To Switch (Rumor)
Originally released in 2013, A Link Between Worlds turned heads, and to many proved itself as the successor to A Link to the Past. Maintaining an impressive score of 91 on Metacritic, it stood as a definitive title for the 3DS library—but that was 2013. Two years later, the game saw a second release in the form of its Nintendo Selects edition at a reduced price, but has since been put to rest. As if to dig it up from its peaceful slumber, Nintendo PR has recently been seen requesting to refeature review content for advertising material.
With a Nintendo Direct more than likely right around the corner, what could this mean for the game? The easiest conclusion to jump to would be a Switch remaster; the game being more than suitable with its lack of reliance on specific 3DS features. Other possibilities could include 3DS Virtual Console on the Switch, or even a sequel.
Shacknews’ sister site Modojo was one of the outlets contacted by Nintendo, but despite the company reaching out, we haven’t been given any firm word on what Nintendo wants to do with the information. The Reddit collective has an idea, of course — many users of the site are certain that Nintendo is working on a Switch re-make. A 3DS re-release seems a little iffy, not only because the game is already on the 3DS, but also because most of the biggest 3DS franchises have already jumped ship toward the more robust Switch hardware.
If not for a Switch release, it may be possible that Nintendo is looking to give the game a budget-oriented Nintendo Selects release — A Link Between Worlds has already been made available as a Selects title in Europe, but no budget version of the game has yet been released in North America. Until we hear proper word from Nintendo, however, all such thoughts are mere speculation. Either way, we’ll report back as soon as we hear any new information about what Nintendo may be planning for the future of the revamped Zelda title.
