It may come as no surprise to many out there, especially after they announced Majora’s Mask 3D, but Nintendo may not be done remastering and/or remaking older Zelda games on newer platforms. So far every game tackled has been of the 3D console variety, thus we know that there are are least two more games that are highly viable for such touch ups, even if it is just because they weren’t in HD. Eiji Aonuma doesn’t explicitly say they are going to do more of them, but he admits that they do listen to fans and do revisit games when new hardware is available, just to see if they can do anything differently. Here is what he had to say back in a September interview:
“Q: Are there any plans to remake other Zelda titles from the past to the Wii U like you did with the Wind Waker?
Aonuma: Obviously, as time goes by and hardware functionality changes and improves, we have an interest in how they might open up new possibilities for games. The No. 1 thing for us is listening to Zelda fans and responding to their ideas so we can make sure they have a great experience. We’re quite aware, for example, that people have strong opinions about Majora’s Mask so that’s something we pay close attention to.”
Interesting stuff. Obviously this was before the big unveiling of Majora’s Mask 3D, so the hint at that was more literal than anyone likely realized back then. Still, it’s clear he and Nintendo are listening. The real question becomes – which Zelda game is next?
