Nintendo is still thinking on the name for Zelda 3DS - Pure Nintendo

Nintendo is still thinking on the name for Zelda 3DS
  • On April 18, 2013

Yesterday Nintendo announced the first new Zelda game on the Nintendo 3DS. Yesterday the unofficial name, which seemed to be more tied with the Japanese version,  was A Link to the Past 2. Here’s what NOA Bill Trinen had to say.

“There is a ‘2’ in the Japanese title. So, yeah, I think as I described today, it’s an all-new game, it is an all-new story. From a story perspective there are connections, so it does fall after A Link to the Past. And it’s set in the same world, but introduces that new gameplay mechanic. So, yeah, I guess by that definition …”

Do you like the idea of adding a 2 or would you like something else? What would you call this Zelda game?

    I don’t really care for just a 2 being added … although I suppose anything would be better than “New” Zelda.

      What’s that supposed to mean?

        I take it to mean it will probably be called a Link to the Past 2 but Nintendo is not ready to confirm that.

      • TrevG1

        Like Nintendo has done with the 2d Mario series … New Super Mario Bros. etc… The “New” has lost it’s meaning, especially since the games look sound and play so similarly. I just think it’s poor naming, and would be disappointed if they took a similar route with the new Zelda game.

          I am sure that Nintendo will come up with a great name for the new Link to the Past Game. Nintendo is usually very good at creating good names for titles in the Zelda franchise.

    Listen, I’m sick of Nintendo getting the idea to add “2’s” to all of their games. Why not

    something original? I’d like to see this: Legend of Zelda: Wizard of Wisdom, or Legend of Zelda: The Scroll of Wisdom.
