Top Video Games of 2013 – The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
It’s hard to go wrong with The Legend of Zelda. In fact, the classic has already created some of the best Wii games.
And now, Nintendo (NTDOY) is giving Link his first original 3DS game.
The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds takes the hero of Hyrule back to the setting of Nintendo’s best video games: A Link to the Past. This is one of the top video games because it not only features the same swordplay and dungeon crawling that Zelda fans love, but also adds a new mechanic that transforms Link into two-dimensional wall art, allowing him to traverse obstacles in a brand-new way.
Nintendo has another major franchise release with Super Mario 3D World for the Wii U. But given the Wii U’s disappointing sales so far, A Link Between Worlds is far more likely to end up as one of the top-selling video games for the 2013 holiday season.
