As you may know, Link Between Worlds is a direct sequel to Link to the Past for the SNES, taking place in the same overworld and with many of the same mechanics. It manages to be both deeply nostalgic and incredibly innovative, updating the classic formula with many clever new game mechanics. It also respects your time, with a streamlined structure that allows you to complete the adventure in about 15 hours.
We discuss what makes this the most innovative Zelda game in years, compare and contrast it with its predecessors, and learn about Nate’s strange, sad history as a Navi sympathizer.
