Eiji Aonuma Wii U Direct

Japan had a recent Nintendo Direct broadcast focused on the Wii U Miiverse, with Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma addressing series fans. Most interestingly, he revealed that the concept of restructuring a 2D Zelda title into 3D has been something in the works at Nintendo since 2011.

He also noted that development progress is going well:

“The world of Hyrule has been reborn in a highly realistic stereoscopic vision, which will feature a new story and new puzzles to be solved. The development for the successor of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past is going smoothly, so, please look forward to it!”

Hats off to Nintendo to keeping that huge secret under the lid all this time, without so much as a leak or accidental slip of the tongue. Miyamoto did say back in 2011 that the original A Link to the Past could be remade on 3DS, so it’s likely that the initial remake eventually turned into a sequel at some point during development – yesterday’s overworld comparison can support that theory!

    I do hope they have more to the overworld than just remaking ALttP's overworld, like maybe some of the areas around Hyrule. Either way I can't wait for this game.

  3. KidWiththeBackpack says:

    That's the way to do it. I'll still be anticipating this game until it comes out, and they didn't leak it soon enough that it's not exciting anymore by the time it comes out.

    were one step closer to a MM 3DS remake.

    they DID say that a MM 3DS remake would come only after an original 3DS Zelda game, which this qualifies as.

    just a little bit longer …

    Did everyone forget about the November 2011 article 99% confirming an original 3DS Zelda?
