Eiji Aonuma

Considering a number of the portable entries in the Zelda series have been handled by Capcom, you may be wondering just who will be in charge of A Link to the Past 2. We can confirm that the game is in good hands indeed, as Polygon reports that Eiji Aonuma and his team at Nintendo EAD will once again take control.

This should come as little surprise as it makes sense for Nintendo to handle the project internally, given the game’s direct link to the original A Link to the Past and the legacy that this sequel will have to live up to. While Aonuma had no role in the development of the original ALttP, he has been involved in the series since Ocarina of Time and has overseen the majority of Zelda games since. I have faith that his direction will once again shine through to create a worthy sequel.
