Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds Trailer Introduces the Kingdom of Lorule

Posted on October 11, 2013 AT 12:52pm

Nintendo’s latest trailer for The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds provides a loose overview of the premise and introduces the Dark World version of Hyrule, “Lorule.”

In addition to revealing Lorule, the trailer (embedded below) also introduces the Link’s new antagonist, a sorceress capable of transforming people into paintings. It’s unclear if she’s at all connected to (or perhaps even related to) Ganon. A Link Between Worlds is set six generations after the events of A Link to the Past.

The trailer also contains two full moments of gameplay footage, including Link’s ability to become a living piece of 2D artwork himself and press against walls to solve puzzles and enter Lorule through magical dimensional cracks. Link presumably gains this power from the Sorceress, no doubt as an unintentionally.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds launches on Nintendo 3DS (and 2DS) November 22.
