The princess-rescuing adventurer Link is coming to the Nintendo 3DS.

The Japanese gaming giant announced plans Wednesday to bring a new "The Legend of Zelda" installment to its hand-held .

Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime said the new "Zelda" would be set in the world of "A Link to the Past," which was originally released in 1992 for the Super Nintendo console.

The as-yet-untitled 3D follow-up will be released later this year and feature a new story and levels, as well as gameplay allowing Link to transform into a 2D drawing.

Other games coming to the 3DS include new "Yoshi's Island" and "Mario Party" titles.

Fils-Aime said Tuesday that 20 million Nintendo 3DS games have been sold since the glasses-free 3D hand-held device debuted in 2011.
