Though Link may be the big the star of the high-fantasy The Legend of Zelda series, what would that enduring franchise be without Princess Zelda? Over the years, and through various eponymous games, a television show, Super Smash Bros., a manga adaptation, and other media, Zelda has gone from a traditional damsel in distress to a more active and powerful agent of change. The latest installment in the franchise, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, is the seventeenth official game in the Zelda series, and the first to be developed specifically for the Nintendo 3DS. An indirect sequel to A Link to the Past, it features a similar world and style of gameplay. This critically acclaimed game stays true to the themes of chivalry and saving the damsel in distress by once again imprisoning Zelda (this time in a painting) and requiring Link to fight many good fights to save her. Still, it's only with Zelda's aid that he's able to defeat the big bads and restore the Triforce to both Hyrule and the alt dimension world of Lorule.
