A Link Between Worlds map compared to A Link to the Past

0

Not a lot has changed in 22 years

Thanks to GameXplain, we have another crazy side-by-side comparison between the overworlds of the upcoming 3DS game The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds and its Super NES predecessor The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.

There are a few differences to take notice of, like the absence of water in the Dark World of A Link Between Worlds, but overall it really is quite astounding how nearly identical the two overworld maps are; even down to the placement of certain enemies. 

GameXplain's first comparison video, back in April, had me quite excited to revisit the world to my all-time favorite Zelda game due to the remarkable similarities. And after combing through their latest analyst, I'm even more giddy to get my hands on Link's latest adventure (unlike a certain someone).

The new art style may not be for everyone, but don't knock it till you've seen running at its silky smooth 60 frames per second.
