We didn’t get to see any reveal of Zelda at E3 last week, the Majora’s Mask remake fan trailer turned out to be just that, and we still have yet to hear any word about an original Zelda game for the 3DS. Fans have been pushing for a Majora’s Mask remake, even petitioning Nintendo with Operation Moonfall, and Mr. Miyamoto released a statement back in April concerning his interest in a remake or sequel to A Link to the Past; however, Miyamoto has yet again voiced concern for a 3DS Zelda title.

Hit the jump to view the latest statement.

The hype for a 3DS Zelda game builds today with the release of these words spoken by Miyamoto:

“We haven’t quite decided yet, whether we’re going to do A Link to the Past, because there’s also the possibility of doing a remake of Majora’s Mask. This is something we’ve certainly been talking about and doing a little bit of experimenting with, to figure out which way we’re going to go. (Fans will have to wait) just a little while longer (to hear a decision).

We have so many goals right now. We’re always looking at expanding our audience and giving people the opportunity to get their hands on 3DS and see what kind of fun gaming experiences they can have. And now, we’re also tasked with pushing the Wii U. So we have lots of good opportunities in terms of thinking about which Zelda game is going to be best for which purpose.”

Discuss your theories below in the comments; we know you have them.

  • I hope they make both of those games, eventually! 😀

  • ZoraMikau

    Majora's mask for the 3DS and LttP for WiiU? I think that'd be pretty awesome.

    • Lee

      YEAH! this guy has the right idea! MM would just go perfect with OOT and ALTTP can just be on Wii U !

  • CasshernTheGuy

    Continue the OoT saga on 3DS, Link to the Past HD upgrade for Wii U. Both ends are pleased! 😀

  • mattj

    Well, I do guess a completely graphically overhauled ALttP would be a fun idea too, but out of the two Majora's Mask just had so much more of an effect on me.

  • Daniel

    MAJORA'S MASK!!! It only makes sense, cuz Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask were made on the N64. So it only makes sense to remake Majora's Mask on the same platform as the Ocarina of Time Remake!

  • Nanbara

    I'm sorry, ALTTP needs to stay a 2D game. Majora's Mask gets my vote not only because I adore it, but because it was already a 3D Zelda, and would love to see an "enhanced" version of it.

    • spoonyone

      It makes logical sense to do MM instead of ALTTP on the 3ds
      1. they did OOT
      2. MM would make sense

      then do ALTTP after mm

      if they actually work they could do both by the end of 2013

  • Majora's Mask, please! Personally, I hated LttP, and with OoT on 3DS it makes so much sense to have MM on there too! It'd be an awesome little pair 😀

    And c'mon, Majora's Mask is just awesome.

    • VanitasXII

      How do you hate ALttP? Honest question.

  • zelda4ever

    Both. Remake both. And if you have to choose between them, pick both. ( And may I say, I love every single face he makes in photos. Shows his fun spirit.)

  • ZoraMikau

    You have to think though. If it was MM, it would likely just be "remade" like OoT 3D was, but I wonder how they would remake aLttP….

  • Dark Tri-Force

    3D Moon!!! And everything else if course but 3D Moon pleeeeeeaaaaassseee!!!!!!!!!

    An hd 3d perspective ALttP would also be awesome though

    3D Moon!!!

  • HazamanX

    I'm gonna have to go with everyone here. Majora's Mask 3D would be easier on the 3DS because the framework is already there. They've done a 64 Zelda on there before, and they know for sure how to do it now. Not that I wouldn't want something like that fake MMHD trailer. Plus, the Wii U would have more nostalgia appeal if LTTP was released on it. Or hell, maybe a Legend of Zelda HD collection with LoZ, Z2, and LTTP redone.

    Just something to think about.

  • Miguel

    I would like a sequel of ALTTP in Wii U and a remake of MM in 3ds, and then I will like two parallel games of zelda for 3ds, like pokemon games and the oracles


  • Majora'smaskduh

    Majora's mask obviously.

  • Dan

    both. how’s that?

  • Nintendo fan 4ever

    Majora's Mask would be really awsome and alttp to. But i've got a few reasons that it wil not be a link to the past remake because of the motion controle and the touch screen funtions. What are they going to do with that?And how will A link to the past look in 3d from above?Meaby it will look like Phanton hourglass or spirit track(but than without the toony artwork).
