Zelda: A Link Between Worlds trailer introduces Lorule

Link is in pretty high demand in this new The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds trailer, first shown today at New York Comic-Con. In the parallel kingdoms of Hyrule and Lorule, evil is at play.

And that evil looks (and laughs) like Kefka.

Seriously, listen to that laugh again at about 0:40 in. This villain is majorly biting on Final Fantasy VI's sociopathic-jester style.

Moving on, this is the first we've heard of Lorule and its Princess Zelda counterpart, Hilda. It seems to be a different place from the Dark World/Golden Realm of A Link to the Past, but maybe it's just been spruced up a bit since Link cleaned the place out?

We'll find out for ourselves when A Link Between Worlds hits 3DS on Nov. 22.
