I'm really starting to like this clay motion art direction they've gone with.



Zelda is changing art styles all the time and it's what keeps it so fresh. They are not afraid to challenge our conventions. I like this clay motion blocky art direction.

Every game after the original is technically a "sequel" according to the timeline. I say Link Between Worlds is a re-imagining because it shares so many attributes of LTTP, while being it's own entity simultaneously. 

The original takes place fairly far into the future of the entire timeline, so no they're not all technically sequels.  Only Zelda II is a sequel to the original.

Looking at the timeline again you're right. Though looks like ALBW was a direct sequel to Link's Awakening not LTTP. 



God the art direction on this game is so good! Coming out of nowhere suddenly I'm hugely pumped about Zelda this year!

Yeah, I guess I was only kinda right.  Link Between Worlds is called a successor to Link to the Past.  Link's Awakening is the direct sequel to Link to the Past.



The artstyle is so cool! I hope they also remake Oracle of Seasons/Ages using this engine!



I'm quite pumped for this. I do hope they add some new stuff and not just give us the same game with updated graphics.

The Oracle games are so underrated, I have a particular affinity for Seasons. Could be a cash cow for Nintendo, release both at the same time like Pokemon. Zelda fans would gobble it up



Game is now up to date in the Database, you can put it on your VGC wishlist:
