\’Link to the Past\’ Sequel Producer Reveals Link’s Light/Dark Side

The Legend of Zelda took quite a jump into the bellows of Twilight hell back in \’The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess\’ and a lot of long time fans wished Midna would have took her impish, yawning, annoying self back to the Twilight realm.  Putting that aside, the newly announced \’The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past 2\’ (as it has been called in Japan) has been revealed to have a darker side, just like its predecessor had with a light and a dark world that Link had to switch back and forth between.

Game producer, Eiji Aonuma, disclosed that the idea of darkness harkens back to Link’s battle with Phantom Ganon in \’The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time\’ and Ganon’s ability to fly right out of paintings on his horse while attacking–almost like a 3D paper Ganon. When approaching the idea, Aonuma thought, \”what if Link could use that same power?\”.  So, because of the return to top down classic style of game play Nintendo felt it was time to revisit the old SNES classic.

What do you think of the new found reason for Link’s transformation into a wall drawing? Leave your comment here on Nintendo Enthusiast.
