Eiji Aounuma has released the above screenshot from upcoming Zelda game A Link Between Worlds via Miiverse. Describing the image Aounuma said:
“This shows the item shop that are common in Zelda games, and the character standing next to Link is looking very suspicious.
We’ll be talking about this character at a later time, but for now take a closer look at the items that are on sale. There’s the bow and arrow, the boomerang and the hookshot that are all familiar to the series.
If you noticed something strange with this picture, you’re quite the Zelda fanatic!
That’s right, shops in the past Zelda games sold things that would run out once you use them like arrows and bombs, items that needed replenishing. They have never sold an item that doesn’t go away after each use like the boomerang or the hookshot.
This shop is a very important place in this game, and we hope to talk more about it soon. Until then, I hope you’ll use your imagination wondering what this shop is all about.”
So it looks like we will have to wait a little while longer to find out more about this new shop as Nintendo builds towards the game’s release in November. Be sure to check back for further details on A Link Between Worlds as they emerge.
