At the end of the recent Nintendo Direct, we got a look at some new content from the upcoming title A Link Between Worlds. New characters were pictured, as well as some returning ones. There is also a very interesting cutscene picture of Link. Hit the jump to view the screenshots and watch the Nintendo Direct!

The first thing touched on was the shopkeeper, who is named Ravio, and his apparent resemblance to Nabbit. While there is some, it was stated that there was no link between the two characters. Below you can see the comparison, as well as a screenshot of Ravio in the game.



Next, there was a screenshot shown of Princess Zelda, what looks like a Zora royalty figure, and Dampé the Gravedigger!




After this, we got a look at some new characters. No information has been given for them, but it is cool to have the screenshots nonetheless. The names of the two characters are Irene and Hilda, respectively.



Last of all, there was an interesting cutscene that shows Link morphing through the wall. Whether this is him receiving the power to become a wall character, a dramatic entrance on his part, or an extension of the power later on, we don’t know. Have a gander though!


If you want to see the footage for yourself, or watch the whole Nintendo Direct, I have embedded the video below for your enjoyment. For reference, the information on A Link Between Worlds starts at 24:75, and ends at 28:20.
