“17th October 2013 – The month of November is set to be an exciting one for Nintendo fans, with the announcement of a Nintendo 3DS XL console inspired by The Legend of Zelda series. Launching the same day as The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, the new addition is ideal for enjoying Link’s new adventure on 23rd November 2013 at a SRP AU$269.95 and available exclusively through EB Games.
With a download code for the game included with this Limited Edition hardware purchase, fans will be able to download the game directly from Nintendo eShop to begin their adventure. For any Zelda fan, the console is instantly recognisable, with the top shell and the inside of the console decked out in an iconic gold colour, and the bottom shell all black, with a Triforce logo emblazoned across each side. When the console is opened therefore, the double Triforce logo of the game is formed!
In The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, which follows on from the story of the 1992 Super NES classic The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, enjoy a whole new adventure in the kingdom of Hyrule where Link can now become a drawing to move along walls, allowing a new dimension when solving the fresh set of puzzles on offer. Other new aspects include greater freedom to tackle the various dungeons in the order you want, while many of the most essential items at Link’s disposal will be available early on at a shop run by the character Ravio, who’ll let you rent or buy items before embarking on your next dungeon adventure.”
It’s great to see Australia benefiting in this way and I’m sure this bundle will be a hit throughout the nation. Now, we need to hope that North America announces the identical or similar bundle otherwise Nintendo of America is set for a load of backlash.
