In the first of what's likely to be a buttload of news posts surrounding the latest Nintendo Direct presentation, a direct sequel to The Legend Of Zelda: A Link To The Past has been announced for 3DS.
As an entirely new game set in the Link To The Past continuity, this new project aims to bring height and volume to the traditional 2D experience by way of the 3DS' stereoscopic 3D screens. Dungeons will now feature numerous levels, with height playing a key role in combat and puzzles.
In terms of new abilities, Link can now turn into a painting on the wall (much like underrated PC/PSN platformer Sideway: New York), and use the new perspective to enter otherwise totally inaccessible areas.
As a sequel, expect entirely new dungeons and storyline, as opposed to a remake.
Nintendo haven't favoured us with a release window or even a working title yet, but we'll doubtlessly learn more at E3. The project is tentatively slated to launch later this year.
