At E3, our very own Jason Schreier had the opportunity to spend a few minutes with the new handheld Legend of Zelda game, A Link Between Worlds.

There's a little bit of everything: exploration, combat, and Jason even demonstrates the new Merge feature for us, which lets Link become a wall painting to sneak by enemies. Clever! We also get to see some of the series' recurring items in action, such as the Fire Rod and the Hammer.

A Link Between Worlds is set to come out this holiday season on the 3DS.
