The Zelda: Ocarina of Time remake for the Nintendo 3DS last year was a great success and now the focus is on an idea last year revolving around Shigeru Miyamoto’s desire to remake A Link to the Past for the handheld. The 1991 Zelda game developed for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System became an instant classic among gamers and Miyamoto has stated to gaming company Edge about his desire to either port the game or create a new Zelda game revolving around A Link to the Past.

“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.”

“To be very honest and open, it really depends on the directors that have time at the moment as well,” he said. “Some directors, I can give them the title and I know they will do something great with it.

“Other directors I’m not so 100 per cent confident [in], so they’re the ones I’d rather take a more remake approach to the title. It really depends on that as well.”
