Zelda: A Link Between Worlds Has Link Batter Up For Some Baseball

Like any Zelda game worth its salt, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds will feature a variety of mini-games, some of which Nintendo detailed this morning. These mini-games or subequests will yield rewards in the form of rupees or heart containers.


Treacherous Tower, pictured above, has Link fighting his way through the floors of a tower filled with enemies in three difficulty levels.


Octoball has Link partaking in a baseball-like minigame in Lorule, where rupees are earned by smashing pots and knocking enemies on the battlefield over.


Nintendo have also officially confirmed that A Link Between Worlds will have a Hero Mode difficulty, which can be unlocked upon completing the game. In Hero Mode, Link will take greater damage from enemies when hit.


Finally, Nintendo also tease a bonus for a second playthrough of the game. According to Nintendo, “Intrepid explorers may even find a small hidden extra waiting to be found somewhere in Lorule during a second play through.”


Perhaps this secret is in some way connected to the Majora’s Mask tease?

    Oh boy, baseball and Zelda in the same thing!

  • Oh dear.

    This better not be one of those mini-games that becomes more addictive than the main game like Voltorb Flip was. I may never make it back to work.

    Wooo … nice !!

    One question: Can I bring my own Master Baseball Bat?
    I have several to choose from.

  • That last screenshot brings back nightmares. I HATED that boss, always getting knocked to a lower level so easily, having to start again. I’ve only ever gotten past it once out of several playthroughs. -_-

      At least in Link’s Awakening you can cheese it by grabbing a Piece of Power before the fight.

    An enemy gauntlet AND a baseball minigame? Want and desire in equal parts fill me. Oh how it fills me. Also neat design on the gauntlet game caretaker. Any relation to Batreux, one wonders?
