The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds will be releasing for the 3DS and 2DS on November 22, and will for the first time feature many new features including Wall Merging.
A game about 20 years in the making, it is the successor to 1992's A Link to the Past for the Super Nintendo.
Wall Merging Mode allows lead character Link to become a moving painting on the wall that can only move left or right as long as the wall remains flat. He will also have a meter that controls how long this feature will be enabled. Once the meter runs out, Link will pop off the wall.

Recently Legend of Zelda executive, Eiji Aonuma, made a humorous video to showcase the new game in which he reenacts some of Link's moves.
The video takes places in New York City as Aonuma runs away from two American Nintendo employees after leaving ComicCon. In the video Aonuma affixed himself to a wall copying Link's new ability.

The game is going to be available in two different bundles: one in the U.K. and one in the U.S. The bundle for the U.S. may be paired with the 3DS XL, according to a Black Friday leaked flyer for GameStop. The bundle will go for $219.99. Polygon said GameStop confirmed to them that the leak was true. In the U.K. the bundle will include a physical copy of the game, a musical cartridge chest, a poster, and a digital download of the game The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening. The promotion is through the U.K. company, GAME, and it goes for £49.99.
"Please Note: Once you place your preorder for the Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds Collector's Edition you will be sent your download code for The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX," it said on their site. "As such, once the order is confirmed and you have received your eShop code, you will be unable to cancel your preorder for this item."
The next two games in the series, out on the 3DS and Wii U, will adopt a new vision for the franchise, reports Digital Spy.
"We're slightly approaching The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds with that mindset, and also the next Zelda title, which we intend to continue changing," said Aonuma to 4Gamer. "However, this brings us to the topic, 'Exactly what is The Legend of Zelda about?' Something that is 'traditional' is in a sense often something that copies previous works, so if you continue doing that, it gradually takes away from its uniqueness."
A Wii U Legend of Zelda game is currently in development.
