Uh, oh. It sounds like Star Wars creator George Lucas is giving lessons to publisher Nintendo when it comes to naming characters and locations in its next Zelda adventure game.
A new trailer for The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds for the 3DS introduces the land of Lorule, which is the underworld of Hyrule. It’s a pun, you see … low (lo) is the opposite of high (hy). As a society, we haven’t experienced this level of wordplay since the death-stick dealing Elan Sleazebaggano from Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace.
Check out the mirror world of Lorule in the video straight from Nintendo’s New York Comic-Con panel:
In addition to the land of Lorule, which is low and not high, the video also introduces a Zelda counterpart named Hilda. As opposed to the blonde Zelda, Hilda is a purple-haired princess. She also looks a bit more moody.
A Link Between Worlds is due out exclusively for the 3DS Nov. 22. It will retail for $39.99 both at retail and through Nintendo’s eShop digital store. The game is a spiritual sequel to the beloved Zelda: A Link to the Past for the Super Nintendo.
