The Legend of Zelda was a talking point during Nintendo’s 74th Annual General Meeting of Shareholders. While discussing how Nintendo can further innovate the Zelda series, Shigeru Miyamoto made an intriguing statement. “We have ideas for Nintendo 3DS which we have not announced yet, so I hope you will look forward to them.”
Whether these “ideas” are small reworkings of classic Zelda elements, small additions of new elements, or something on a larger scale have yet to be determined. The status of the game’s development has also been kept quiet — is the game already in development, or are they simply in the preliminary stages? A Link Between Worlds redefined a major aspect of the series: the main items found in dungeons. Rather than receiving the dungeon’s main item in that said dungeon, the player would rent it beforehand or have the ability to purchase it in exchange for a large sum of Rupees. Is Nintendo looking to push the boundaries of the franchise even further?
What would you like to see in a new 3DS Zelda game? New mechanics, like A Link Between Worlds’ wall-merging, or larger tweaks to the Zelda formula that are expected in the recently announced Zelda Wii U?
