The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds Will Have Two Triforces

By Ishaan . August 7, 2013 . 7:21am

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds will have not one, but two Triforces, Nintendo have shared.


This is depicted in the game’s logo, which shows a second shadowy Triforce, which is located in a different world from the one Link inhabits.

    Dark Link is back? :3

  • dam I really wanna know the plot now, i totally loved AlttP, i wonder if dark link will be the last boss again

  • Haseyo

    What if…we’re Dark Link, and standard Link is the final boss!

    • that would be a pretty sick twist actually

    • Lynx

      Oh dear.

      Fund it.

      • AnimusVox

        Kickstarter!! Awayyyy!!

    • nedul

      Maybe the entirely new “Dark” Triforce might give us some other “Dark” doppelgangers. Dark Zelda? Maybe even a DARKER Ganon? Darkness everywhere.

      • Haseyo

        Good Guy Ganon D:

  • Tre W

    It’s been said that this game takes place well into the future of this timeline, and far beyond the time frame of LTTP. I wonder how far…

  • Chaos_Knight

    Return of Demise? :o

    • James Enk

      i hope we see him again at some point in some form

      • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

        yeah we already did his name is Ganondorf

        • James Enk

          i don’t think so

          • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

            yes Ganondorf is Demise reincarnated.
            He died same way in Twilight Princess.

            OoT ending where Zelda and Link partway is the same exact location you fight Demise.

  • Armane

    “shadowy Triforce”
    This game sounds less and less interesting the more I see about it.

    • DCBlackbird

      maybe Zelda as a whole seems to have lost your taste, I don’t blame you, I was sort of getting tired of it myself until I played Skyward Sword

      • Armane

        Not really, I mostly enjoyed Skyward Sword, and even PH.

        I was pretty excited about a return of proper top-down Zelda games. But the art style, the reuse of the LTTP world(s), and this ROM hack plot idea, are all pretty uninspired.

        • DCBlackbird

          Well as rational folk always say “I’ll have to wait and see”

  • Luis Camargo

    Can’t wait about the rumors about how to get the Dark Triforce

  • Bur

    So what three traits will this one represent?

    • Andar

      Cowardice, Ignorance, and Meekness?

      • Works for me. lol

      • DCBlackbird

        what evil wants that?

        • Andar

          Maybe they want to swap the two Triforces and keep the good traits for themselves. Makes sense if the Dark Triforce is what leads to evil losing every time.

          • DCBlackbird

            lol I’m beginning to wonder how much conflict a world with a cowardly hero, ignorant princess and meek overlord must have

    • Kavyn

      I’m going to take a guess and say Sorrow, Destruction and Despair (the three torches that twinrova had to light up in Oracle of Ages/Seasons to bring back Ganon).

  • nedul

    I gotta say, the gameplay they showed looks a lot more interesting than it did when this game was first announced. The puzzles using the “drawing on the wall” mechanic look really interesting. Even the combat looks awesome. I don’t think we’ve seen what the bottom screen is gonna show yet, but i did notice that switching items seemed to be quick and easy. My interest in this game is growing…

  • YoshEE

    Two Triforces?

  • Hinataharem

    Oh boy!

  • Fango

    The Anti-Triforce.

  • Göran Isacson

    A Dark Triforce. Gotta admit, that sounds like some straight up fanfiction-sounding material… but heck, turning into a painting and hugging walls actually seems to be an interesting gameplay mechanic, so I can probably bear a new story introducing silly elements straight outta nowhere. Seems like this game is saying that Aghanim was a separate person from Ganon as well, so nice to have THAT bit of weirdness cleared up.

  • Gilgamesh2025

    If it’s called “Two worlds” it’s only logical that there must be two Triforces as well.

    • leingod

      Well, the two worlds were already featured in A Link to the Past and there was only one triforce there.

      • Gilgamesh2025

        I have to admit that I never played A Link to the Past; but good to know … :)

  • AnimusVox

    This is honestly the first time I’ve read on this, was hoping it’d be for Wii U but it sound pretty ace regardless.

  • Ben Sylvia

    Oh Hylia, Ganon made his own Triforce!

    We’re all [redacted]!
