It’s no secret that Shigeru Miyamoto is a fan of A Link to the Past, having already expressed an interest in porting or remaking the game for the 3DS. However, after speaking to Edge Magazine again yesterday in Paris, Miyamoto has revealed that not only is he interested in having A Link to the Past on the 3DS, but also in creating a brand new Zelda game based off, or starting from the SNES classic.

After being asked if A Link to the Past was still his top choice for a 3DS remake, Miyamoto had this to say:

“I think the answer would be the same if we’re talking about just porting,” he said, “but I think I’d be even more interested in creating something new maybe based on, or starting from, A Link To The Past. I think it’s important to bring some really new software.”

It’s great that Miyamoto is focusing on the importance of brand new titles for the 3DS, instead of concentrating on remakes or ports. Are you more interested in new titles, or would you prefer older games on the 3DS? Excited by the possibility of a spiritual successor to A Link to the Past? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
