The Legend of Zelda A Link Between Worlds; Amazing New Commercial!

It’s both live action and ‘innovative’ and actually based on the game at the same time, so it’s well worth watching.  So keep reading the article and watch it in the full piece!

Here’s the ad:

Looks pretty good I’d say, with the guy dodging and diving through a dangerous Zelda style dungeon filled with traps and actually taking the Master Sword at the end!  But did you notice something else in this ad?

No?

Well look very carefully right at the end.  Does this guy look familiar to anyone else?

He does to me.  He seems to be Blind the Thief from the Link to the Past game on SNES, the boss fought at the end of Thieves Town.  Don’t remember?  He’s the boss you fight after you lead the fake damsel/maiden into the beam of light in a certain room.  Pic for reference:

Blind

Yeah, they’re most definitely the same guy. So that makes a third Zelda boss returning from Link to the Past.

But enough of that.  Does anyone else like the commercial?

I like it. It’s to the point and shows the new ability. I will be getting this game for my birthday.

Yeah, it evoke’s memories of much earlier Nintendo adverts, short, charming and to the point.

It doesn’t come off as too camp or pandering. Job done. -Now, basically the game has to stand up for itself.
