As confirmed by several sources, the man behind Zelda has indeed expressed that he would be “very interested” to create a 3D remake of the SNES classic.
During an interview with the Official Nintendo Magazine UK, Eiji Aonuma said:
“I always think about what we couldn’t do and what didn’t work well in the previous game when we start a new title, but there’s no game that I would want to actually change as such. I have to say though, the first Zelda game that I played and felt potential in was Link to the Past. I’m actually very interested in what it would be like if we remade that title as a 3D game.”
The directors of Zelda are known to toss around exciting ideas like this, but never before has anyone mentioned a 3D remake of an older game. As always, we can only wait and see.
