The other day, Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma raised our hopes for another 2D Zelda game on the Nintendo Switch. I think we can all agree the 2D titles possess an amount of charm the larger main console titles do not have. However, there’s a bit of confusion as to what 2D could mean.
There’s the 2D pixel style, like The Minish Cap and Link’s Awakening. Then there’s the technically 3D but referred to as 2D top-down games like A Link Between Worlds and Spirit Tracks (we’ll call these 2.5D). Which style would you like to see on the Switch? I would personally like to see the original Zelda game for NES remade in an A Link Between Worlds style, but perhaps others would like to see a brand new pixelated game.
Let us know your answer in the comments below, and remember to keep the debate civil.
