The Legend of Zelda series has been getting a lot of attention recently. Last November, A Link Between Worlds was released for Nintendo 3DS, and The Minish Cap was made available on the Wii U eShop last month. Recent comments from Zelda creator Shigeru Miyamoto indicate that more Zelda 3DS projects are in the works.
Speaking at the 74th Annual General Meeting of Shareholders, Miyamoto told investors that future Zelda projects, some unannounced, are working to reinvent the beloved series.
…We are gradually changing the structure of The Legend of Zelda series, and we are preparing to newly evolve the series for Wii U. In addition to that, we have ideas for Nintendo 3DS which we have not announced yet, so I hope you will look forward to them.
Since the announcement of future Zelda 3DS titles came after explaining how the series is evolving, it seems unlikely that Miyamoto is referring only to a remake of Majora’s Mask for 3DS. Instead, it seems more likely that he is hinting at a future original Zelda game for 3DS.
That said, following fan outcry for a Majora’s Mask remake, the game’s original supervisor, Takashi Tezuka, said that he would like to see the game be remade for 3DS. Ocarina of Time 3D’s developer, Grezzo, has also listed on their website that they are hiring help making a “legend,” perhaps hinting at a Majora’s Mask remake.
