Gold is definitely the color of all things The Legend of Zelda. From the original gold-colored cartridge for The Legend of Zelda on NES to the box art of the recently released The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD for Wii U, gold has always been the color most associated with the franchise (And maybe some green in there.)
To celebrate the continuation of the much loved franchise, the next installment, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds launching on Nov. 22, the tradition of gold also continues. On the same day, a new Nintendo 3DS XL bundle will launch that includes Nintendo 3DS XL hardware with gorgeous gold-and-black coloring and the iconic Triforce on the exterior, as well as a download code for The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. The legendary system is gold on one side and black on the other, beautifully representing the two parallel worlds Link travels between in the game. The special bundle was announced in a video starring The Legend of Zelda franchise producer Eiji Aonuma, and will be available at a suggested retail price of $219.99.
Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing, said,
“This beautifully designed Nintendo 3DS XL system continues a tradition that has delighted our fans for decades. It’s a special bundle for a very special video game.”
The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is set in the same world as fan-favorite The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past for Super NES and takes place in the same Hyrule after many years have passed. In this new game, Link must journey between two worlds, Hyrule and Lorule, using a mysterious power that lets him become a drawing on walls. Link’s ability to merge with walls allows players to solve puzzles and explore dungeons in a new way. Players are also able to buy or rent various items throughout the game, allowing them to explore dungeons in any order they want, adding a new level of freedom to the game play.
