Is Shigeru Miyamoto Pushing for a 3D Remake of A Link to the Past?

The Legend of Zelda team has been bitten by the remake bug, and A Link to the Past may be next in line to get the deluxe 3D treatment. In an interview with Gamesradar, Skyward Sword producer Eiji Aonuma spoke openly of Shigeru Miyamoto’s desire to upgrade more 2D Zelda titles, revealing that the designer/producer has been researching the matter personally.

Aonuma explained: “…Mr. Miyamoto himself has been talking recently about going back to the 2D Zelda games… in particular the ones that were designed with multiple levels to the world like A Link to the Past, and taking those 2D graphics and recreating them in 3D so that you could get a sense for the depth of those worlds. That’s something that might be interesting to do, so I would say there might be a possibility of something like that in the future.”

While Majora’s Mask seems like the best candidate for an upgrade since it ran on the same engine as Ocarina of Time, A Link to the Past remains the most beloved game of the series and certainly wouldn’t make a bad addition to the 3DS’s software arsenal. The depth and scope of exploration available in the game would translate well into a 3D environment.

    Hehe…”bitten by the remake but”…

    Also, I don’t know if I could handle another remake of ALTTP. Especially not in 3D.

    However, I may just have to give it a try.

    Personally I’d rather have Majora’s Mask 3D, as it’s yet to be released in a portable format and my GBA and the ALTTP port for it still work fine. But I would take both if that’s an option!

    I would actually like to see a HD remake of Link to the Past. I mean with high res 2D artwork for sprites (think Arcana Heart or Paper Mario). I also would like a mode where you can play as Zelda, like a Resident Evil 2 system where Leon and Claire switch off at points. #Wishfulthinking
