Zelda: A Link to the Past 2 doesn’t use stylus based movement like Phantom Hourglass/Spirit Tracks
Footage from Nintendo’s Press Event yesterday has been pouring out all over the web. The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past 2 was actually playable at the event.
A lot of fans feared that the game would support stylus based movement much like the DS games, Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks. Thankfully the abundance of footage from the event confirms that players’s control Link with the 3DS’s Circle Pad instead of the stylus.
The touch screen appears to be still used in some ways, but attacks are mapped to buttons and movement is controlled via the Circle Pad. Stylus based movement was a huge turnoff for players in the DS Zelda games so its good to get this confirmation out of the way.
