Last year, Shigeru Miyamoto told IGN that the development teams were debating whether they want to create either a sequel or remake of A Link to the Past, or a Majora’s Mask remake. A year later, we all know how that decision ended now that A Link Between Worlds is on the way at the end of the year. But what of that other highly intriguing project?
IGN’s Richard George caught up with Miyamoto again this year, to ask if fans can still expect this remake to happen. Miyamoto’s response was brief but positive: “well, they’re still in my memory.” This seems to suggest that he is still considering those fans, and the possibility of developing the game–or maybe development is already underway?
Reflecting on last year’s interview, it’s interesting that Miyamoto would say that the team was debating the two projects, when A Link Between Worlds had already been in development for a year at that point. Perhaps that “debate” was a ploy all along to make us wonder? Sneaky, if so.
