Zelda: A Link Between Worlds Easter Eggs

Secret Perspective Easter Egg

Location: The entire game is actually played in a 3D angled top-down perspective! This means that every item & object in the game world (including Link himself!) is tilted backwards by 45 degrees, creating the illusion of a world designed specifically for viewing at a perpendicular angle.

How To See It In-Game Yourself: Switch to the side view while transforming into the painting/wall-walking mode.

Look at the image at the top of this page to find out how the game world is built. Nintendo took this approach, to best mirror the top-down view of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past from the SNES, since The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is its sequel.

Eiji Aonuma, producer on the Zelda series, hosted a speaking session on The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds at New York Comic Con. Take a look at the highlights in this video, where he starts talking about the crooked perspective 1:37 minutes in.

Majora’s Mask Connection Easter Egg

Majora’s Mask Connection #1

Location: In Hyrule you can find the actual Majora’s Mask hanging on the wall in Link’s House!

This is the first easter egg and reference to Majora’s Mask you will come across while playing The Legend of Zelda: Link Between Worlds. You see the Majora’s Mask at the start of the game but you don’t see it well until Ravio comes into your house. Even then it’s only a glance at it. Once you get the ability to merge into the walls you will be able to get to see the Majora’s Mask a lot better. When you merge into the wall you can actually go behind the Majora’s Mask but unfortunately you can’t actually wear it but you can look like you are wearing it while you are merged into the wall.

Majora’s Mask Connection #2

Location: Find Ravio’s Diary in the vacant house of Lorule, which is the same location as Link’s House in Hyrule. But it only shows up in there when you’re playing on Hero Mode* difficulty.
* Hero Mode unlocks after you’ve beaten the game on Normal Mode.

The 3 days are a reference to the N64 classic The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask where the moon is falling into the Earth and Link has 3 days to stop this disaster from happening. The “A Link Between Worlds” producer, Eiji Aonuma — who was the director on “Majora’s Mask” as well — has been hinting at a connection between the two games… which you can hear him say in the video presentation at the top of this page.

Take a look at what Ravio’s Majora’s Mask Diary says:

Majora’s Mask Connection #3

Location: Lorule

The Lorule civilians start wearing masks (Thief girl included) after you complete the Thieves Hideout, and they hope to transform into monsters.
