We have some fantastic news for Zelda fans now, especially if you own a Nintendo 3DS. The company has just confirmed that a brand new, original Zelda game is in the works and that it will be the next title to release after Skyward Sword, which lands on the Wii towards the end of this month.
We’re not sure about you, but this has come completely out of the blue, especially so soon after the remake of Ocarina of Time 3D that released on 3DS recently. Bring it on we say, and it is so refreshing to hear that Nintendo intends to make this an original title, rather than another remake.
Eiji Aunoma, series producer of Legend of Zelda, spoke in a recent interview with MyGames, and hear is what he had to say about the new, unannounced Zelda game for the 3DS, as reported from NintendoEverything:
”We are already preparing a new game, a game in the series for the Nintendo 3DS, but don’t think that it is a direct sequel to the Zelda titles released on DS. We are talking about a new game, but it takes much of what has been done on previous handhelds. The next Zelda game on 3DS will be original.”
The news will be met with delight for Zelda fans, and it may even cause those who do not have a 3DS yet, to go out and get one depending on how development of the game turns out.
Considering that this will be an original, what initial ideas do you have for the game at the moment? There is a big hint that the game will take elements from previous handheld Zelda titles, so will we be seeing a hybrid game of past titles such as Link’s Awakening, Four Swords and dare we even say it, a Link to the Past? Having said that, we hope that Nintendo gives a full remake to A Link to The Past as that game on the SNES is considered to be the best Zelda game in history, and one of the best games of all time, period.
What are your thoughts on this new original Zelda game for the 3DS, what ideas would you offer to Nintendo?
