Hopefully this holiday lineup is enough to gain interest in the Wii U until more games come along.

Whoa, how did I forget about this one. The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is the official sequel to A Link to the Past and wow, does it look amazing. When you talk about an evolution of classic Zelda gameplay, this is it. Not since Super Mario 3D Land have I since a game that might actually make great use of the 3DS’ 3D feature.

Look forward to The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds this November.
