Nintendo has already released an amazing 3D remake of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, so what should we be expecting next for a 3D conversion? There's already talk about doing Majora's Mask, but how about the SNES classic, A Link to the Past?
I'm sure we all agree that Majora's Mask should be the next obvious choice for a 3D re-release, but GamesRader reports that Skyward Sword producer, Eiji Aoruma, has said that Shigeru Miyamoto is looking into an even older Zelda game.
"Well actually, even Mr. Miyamoto himself has been talking recently about going back to the 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."
I do remember all of the dungeons in A Link to the Past utilizing multiple levels of depth, having players jump from one platform down to another to solve puzzles. Now, if Nintendo can actually pull this off, this could be an amazing 3D title.
Of course, none of this is confirmed, and Aonuma did say that the next Zelda game would be something original and new. Still, this is pretty exciting news for any Zelda fan. And if Nintendo is to make any announcements on the development of this 3D remake, expect it at E3 next year.
