New Zelda For 3DS Gets Handsome Boxart With Intriguing Icon

Illustration for article titled New emZelda/em For 3DS Gets Handsome Boxart With Intriguing Icon

Here's the excellent box art for November 22's Nintendo 3DS (and 2DS—wow that feels weird) game The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. Hey, listen! What's that orange icon in the top right corner?

Why, that's the logo for the Nintendo Network, which indicates that a game might have online multiplayer or support DLC.

I knew that A Link Between Worlds was a sequel to the Super Nintendo classic The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. I did not know it might have online multiplayer or DLC or any other Nintendo Network functionality.

I'll go first... please note that I am guessing/joking!

Best possible reason for the Nintendo Network icon: Previously unannounced multiplayer mode lets another player play as Zelda, trying to escape. One player as Link, one as Zelda. They meet in the middle of the adventure.

Worst possible reason for the Nintendo Network icon: $.99 per bomb, $2.99 for five bombs.
