Zelda director Eiji Aonuma recently took to Miiverse to remind fans of A Link Between Worlds‘ release last week. Interestingly, he also announces that “a designated community for A Link Between Worlds” will become available on the 3DS next month. If you missed it, Miiverse was announced for 3DS in the last Nintendo Direct and will be arriving alongside the upcoming system update.
You can read his full statement after the cut.
“[For customers in the Americas]
Hello, everyone in The Legend of Zelda community. This is Eiji Aonuma from Nintendo.
The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds for the Nintendo 3DS series is finally released in North America and Europe! Have you already played it?
As you know, this is not a Wii U game, so there won’t be a designated community in Miiverse just yet. However, once the system update for Nintendo 3DS rolls out in December, Miiverse will be available in Nintendo 3DS. At that time, we’ll make a designated community for A Link Between Worlds.
Until then, you cannot make a post “Directly!” from the Nintendo 3DS, but I hope you continue to share your game experience or anything about the game by making lots of posts to The Legend of Zelda community from the Wii U console in the same way as before.
In the “Iwata Asks” article on the official Nintendo website, there is a challenge regarding a cucco minigame given by the game’s director. I tried to clear it myself, but the hurdle was really high! I hope you’ll take up the challenge and post your results to the community.
Lastly, I have one advice as the producer. If you are stuck in puzzle-solving, you can ask for help to the Hint Ghost using Play Coins – this is one method, but aren’t you forgetting something? The more you get into the game, the more you might forget about Link’s special ability of turning into a panting to go inside walls, so be sure to try it out when you get stuck in the game. I think that will help you to make it through!”
