We had legends. We had heroes. Lorule had hope. But all that is gone now. Lorule has only me now. And YOUR hero, of course... Lorule was just like Hyrule. So very beautiful. So very... promising. We have need of a hero—and your Link is superb.The Legend Of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is a game for the Nintendo 3DS released in 2013, the 17th installment in The Legend of Zelda series.The game takes place in the same world as the SNES installment A Link to the Past, generations later. Chronologically, it takes place after Link's Awakening and the Oracle games, but before the original game and featuring a new Link. This makes it the 7th game in the "Hero Defeated" branch of the Hyrule timeline leading to the NES games. Shigeru Miyamoto was directly involved in the production, in contrast to the other post-Ocarina of Time games being handled more by Eiji Aonuma.Although Hyrule appears similar to A Link to the Past, it is set long after that story and features a brand new Link. The plot sees this Link, an apprentice to a blacksmith, encountering an Evil Sorcerer named Yuga who is going across Hyrule turning various people into paintings. With help from Princess Zelda, the elder Sahasrahla, and the seedy rabbit-costumed merchant Ravio, he embarks on a quest to halt Yuga's reign of terror. His journey eventually brings him to a Mirror Universe with a decaying kingdom called Lorule (a land similar to the Dark World from its predecessor) ruled by Zelda's Alternate Self, the somber Hilda. Satoru Iwata has hinted at the existence of a "mirror" of the Triforce within this world, which shows up on the game's logo as an upside-down black Triforce.The game once again features Dual-World Gameplay, though this time Link travels back and forth between Hyrule and Lorule. He is aided in his quest with a magic bracelet that gives him the ability to turn into a 2-dimensional painting, letting him walk along walls and enter narrow openings. In a twist on the traditional Zelda Dungeon Crawling formula, after a certain point in the game, you can complete the dungeons in any order you want.note This is done thanks to a shop owned by Ravio, where you can rent and eventually purchase various items depending on which is needed to enter a particular dungeon.
