As far as memorable titles for the Nintendo 3DS is concerned one of the few games that people talking about to this day is The Legend Of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds released back in November 2013. It may not seem like such a long time ago that this single-player action-adventure title was released since its been almost six years now. A Link To Both Worlds was arguably one of the most creative Zelda titles of the 10’s decade especially coming the fact that Nintendo utilized the top-down perspective format similar to that of Link To The Past from 1993. However, instead of using 2D sprites we got to see 3D stereoscopic graphics along with along an open world map that resembled that of Link To the Past. The cool thing about Link To Both Worlds was the fact that players did not have to visit certain dungeon in a particular order to progress throughout the game. While attempting to save the Seven Sages along with thwarting Yugi’s plans players got to experience some cool new in-game mechanics such as Link’s ability to merge into solid walls which was helpful in competing certain parts of the game.

In addition, to defeating various bosses in different dungeons and solving numerous puzzles players had the opportunity to travel between the kingdoms of Hyrule and Lorule. Zelda: A Link Between Worlds had players do everything they could to prevent Yugi from resurrecting Ganon and was considered to be a worthy successor to Zelda: Link To The Past from the early 90’s. Ever since, its release Zelda: A Link Between Both Worlds was seen by various critics and gaming entities as the best 3DS titles of 2013. In fact, Zelda: A Link Between Both Worlds was arguably more popular than Zelda: Skyward Sword which came out for the Wii console in 2011. While a re-release of Link Between Both Worlds for the Switch console would be nice it seems unlikely to happen and would best remain as an exclusive for the Nintendo 3DS.
