A Link Between Worlds is set to be a true sequel to A Link to the Past. Staying true to its roots, ALBW brings back the music from ALttP, but with a fresh orchestral sound. In a recent interview with Official Nintendo Magazine, Eiji Aonuma states:
“We will be using arrangements of music from A Link to the Past, since this is a sequel to that game, and we are also trying to make the music sound like it’s played on real instruments. People who know the original will definitely be able to tell and be happy about it, while newcomers will also be able to enjoy it.”
Gamers who grew up with the original will enjoy revisiting the music, while newer gamers get to experience it for the first time. This creates an excellent opportunity for entire families to connect and play together.
