Miyamoto Discusses Possibility of a Link to the Past 3D Remake

Miyamoto Discusses Possibility of a Link to the Past 3D Remake

Legend of Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma, in an interview with GamesRadar, reported that Shigeru Miyamoto is considering a 3D makeover for The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. The game would be a possible addition to the Nintendo 3DS library (making it murky whether or not the 3D visuals discussed are of a polygonal nature). As GamesRadar stresses in their interview, this is by no means a confirmation that any remake is currently in production, but the fact that a remake is being discussed suggests 3DS owners may soon be getting a fresh look on some early Zelda titles.

“Well actually, even Mr. Miyamoto himself has been talking recently about going back to the 2D Zelda games,” said Aonuma according to GamesRadar, after being questioned about the possibility of future 2D Zelda games. “In particular the ones that were designed with multiple levels to the world like A Link to the Past, and taking those 2D graphics and recreating them in 3D so that you could get a sense for the depth of those worlds. That’s something that might be interesting to do, so I would say there might be a possibility of something like that in the future.”

Whether A Link to the Past will make a transition into the future is yet to be foretold, but after the success of Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, it is safe to say Nintendo has plans for the man in green on the 3DS.
