There’s a new live-action commercial out now to promote Nintendo’s upcoming blockbuster The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds for the 3DS and 2DS. The 30 second trailer shows a young man traversing a dungeon using one of Link’s new powers; being able to go flat and slide along walls. It’s short and sweet, and to be honest it’s pretty well done.
This isn’t the first time however that a live action commercial has aired to promote this series. The first time I ever heard about The Legend of Zelda was from this commercial for the original game back in the mid 1980s.
That was the first time I ever heard of Zelda, and it’s probably at least 73% the reason why I’m not that big a fan of the series. Oh well, let’s hope the new commercial holds up better.
The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds will be released on November 22nd in North America and Europe, November 23rd in Australia, and December 26th in Japan.
