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.

Well well, like I said just a minute
n 2.5m copies sold - as of March 2014.
I'm sure it's at 3m by now, or will be
at the end of this year. Digital sales
makes it pretty hard to estimate overall
DanneSandin (on 27 October 2014)
I'm pretty positive this game has sold
3m so far: by the end of January 2014
Nintendo's own official numbers were
2.18m. I guess that includes digital as
well, but I find it hard to believe
sales have been at a stand still since

Even though this is severely
undertracked, it seems the Zelda curse
strikes again. Apparently it never
mattered that Ocarina was 'just' a
remake, it still, as the system's
'first Zelda', easily outsold this

This game appears to have done well

If you account digital and
physical sale... I don't think it is a
stretch that this will reach 3.5 million
lifetime minimum.
I do believe it will
be easier to gauge the legs on this when
we see how well it does over the
Christmas holiday season.

Man, I really want this to be the best
selling hand held LoZ yet... Doesn't
seem like that'll happen
