LOS ANGELES (AP) — The princess-rescuing adventurer Link is coming to the Nintendo 3DS.
The Japanese gaming giant announced plans Wednesday to bring a new "The Legend of Zelda" installment to its hand-held gaming system.
Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime said the new "Zelda" game would be set in the world of "A Link to the Past," which was originally released in 1992 for the Super Nintendo console.
The as-yet-untitled 3D follow-up will be released later this year and feature a new story and levels, as well as gameplay allowing Link to transform into a 2D drawing.
Other games coming to the 3DS include new "Yoshi's Island" and "Mario Party" titles.
Fils-Aime said Tuesday that 20 million Nintendo 3DS games have been sold since the glasses-free 3D hand-held device debuted in 2011.
