Game Overview

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds (also often referred to as A Link to the Past 2) is the latest entry in the Legend of Zelda series of games, developed and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo 3DS. Is a follow up to the original The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and is due to be released sometime in 2013.

The game takes place in the same Hyrule setting as the original title, but will feature updated graphics and new gameplay mechanics, including the ability to become part of a wall and move around.

Right on the edge of 2 Million, and a
game that deserves to sell so much more.
TK14 (on 09 April 2014)
I'd really like to see Nintendo's
official sales (which include digital)
for this game now, cause at this point 2
million seems awful disappointing.
Especially considering the 3DS's
healthy install base. Hopefully this
title is doing well digitally.
Roar_Of_War (on 08 April 2014)
2.18 million, according to Nintendo (at
the time they said it). VGChartz
doesn't track digital (non-bundle)
sales, so this isn't the whole picture
I think. This is about a 3 million
lifetime seller.

Probably because
it's a 2D Zelda without the install
base of the DS to back it up. 3D ones
always sell this is being
labeled a remake by a lot of people.
NintendoPie (on 07 April 2014)
This is falling behind Spirit Tracks,
Ocarina of Time 3D, and definitely
Skyward Sword. Why in the world is this
selling so badly in comparison to those?
Roar_Of_War (on 15 February 2014)
VGchartz tracks bundle deals, right?
Even if it's digital, they should be
able to tell how much it sold in the
Gold XL. I don't think NPD counts the
bundle for ALBW because it's
technically digital, but I think
VGchartz does. Depends on that.
