These are three of the possible future Legend of Zelda games to be worked on, at least according to Shigeru Miyamoto. He has stated that they have not quite decided which Zelda game to do next but hints at either a sequel to “A Link to the Past”, a remake of “A Link to the Past” or even a remake of “Majora’s Mask”. An IGN rep recently conducted an interview with Miyamoto at E3 and here’s what the man behind Zelda had to say…
“We haven’t quite decided yet, whether we’re going to do A Link to the Past, because there’s also the possibility of doing a remake of Majora’s Mask,” Miyamoto told me in an interview at E3 last week. “This is something we’ve certainly been talking about and doing a little bit of experimenting with, to figure out which way we’re going to go.”
“We have so many goals right now,” Miyamoto said. “We’re always looking at expanding our audience and giving people the opportunity to get their hands on 3DS and see what kind of fun gaming experiences they can have. And now, we’re also tasked with pushing the Wii U. So we have lots of good opportunities in terms of thinking about which Zelda game is going to be best for which purpose.”
Miyamoto also noted that he could not announce anything at the time and Zelda fans would have to wait a little while longer before any official news.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Shigeru Miyamoto discussed a few games such as Pikmon 3 and the Legend of Zelda. He talks about how they plan on bring the Zelda franchise to the Wii U, check out the interview below!
We know there’s a new Mario game coming for the Wii U, New Super Mario Bros. U. Last year when the Wii U was first introduced, a standalone Zelda battle scene was created to showcase the system’s high-definition graphics. What about the Wii U intrigues you for what you could do in a Zelda game?
Obviously we stared that experiment last year and used that to sort of showcase some of the HD visuals. And obviously when you look at that, you do get a positive reaction to how simply having the HD visuals in a Zelda game can really make the game look wonderful and give it sort of a high-quality feel. But one thing that’s interesting is we’re seeing how the way that tastes are broadening in video games and you have some people who prefer more casual experiences, and you have some people who prefer sort of those more in-depth experiences. Obviously, as a company that’s been making games for a very long time, we tend to be more on the deeper, longer game side of things. But really what we continue to ask ourselves as we have over the years is, “What is the most important element of Zelda if we were to try to make a Zelda game that a lot of people can play?” So we have a number of different experiments going on, and [when] we decide that we’ve found the right one of those to really help bring Zelda to a very big audience, then we’ll be happy to announce it.
A trailer has leaked today showing off a new version of Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask. It is currently uncertain if this is just a fan created project or the real deal. The graphics in this trailer are very high quality and looks to be a total remake of the game. If it is indeed fan made then props to whoever made it, but it does make one speculate however. Could it be real? It leaked during E3 2012 and all… You be the judge and watch this amazing trailer for Majora’s Mask!
During Nintendo’s press conference at E3 2012, they revealed an upcoming multiplayer theme park game entitled Nintendoland. It will release initially when the Nintendo Wii U releases. Here’s a direct quote of the game description and images and videos below that!
The player with the GamePad is an archer who can aim and shoot arrows using the screen as a view finder. That player is joined by up to three others who wield Wii Remote Plus controllers like swords. Players work together to take on a variety of enemies in a world that looks like a cloth version of a game from The Legend of Zelda series.
Here’s another round of Zelda rumors for E3 2012. A few days ago Nintendo hinted at three Wii U launch titles via a hidden “scratch off” text (shown here). It would appear fans have deciphered the text and claim one of them says “Legend of Zelda HD Collection”. Along with this rumor, someone over at Gamefaqs has claimed to have revealed the lineup for Nintendo’s E3 conference. They reveal the following games…
New Super Mario World by Nintendo
Pikmin 3 by Nintendo
Anguish Souls by Nintendo The Legend of Zelda: HD Tripack -Wind Waker + Twilight Princess + Four Swords Adventures- by Grezzo
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 by Konami

Only time will tell, E3 is only one day away! Thoughts?
Oh Zelda Informer and their rumors, anyways here’s one that isn’t surprising at all. Apparently an anonymous tipster has sent in an “insider” piece of information stating that we will indeed see a new Legend of Zelda title at this year’s E3 conference (which starts next week). Not only that, we will see a trailer showcasing the game as well, but no specific platform was stated in which the game would appear on. In the end, it’s only a rumor and a fake one at that. But that doesn’t exactly mean we won’t see Zelda this year, thoughts? Would you prefer a 3DS Zelda or Wii U Zelda reveal?
Nintendo of Japan have announced that Zelda II The Adventure of Link will be heading to the Nintendo 3DS virtual console June 6th 2012 and will be going for 500 yen. Although it hasn’t been announced on whether or not this game will get a world wide re-release, it is only inevitable that it will eventually. There is one update to the game however, it would appear players will now be able to save state features throughout their progress in the game.
I was scrolling through the NSCX (a website with a lot of different video game goodies, really worth a look) a while ago and saw these figures, but forgot about posting it, so I’m doing it now as a reminder if you’re lookin’ for some Zelda-related figures.
Well, if you haven’t noticed yet, NCSX has started to sell Zelda figures from three different Zelda games; the long-awaiting Skyward Sword, Phantom Hourglass and Ocarina of Time 3D. From each game you can find two well-known characters; Skyward Sword has Link and Zelda, Ocarina of Time young Link and Zelda and last Phantom Hourglass with Tetra and Toon Link. You can buy a complete set of these six figures for a cost of US$36.90, which isn’t too bad.
It’s not really something new and have been out on the Internet for a while, but it’s now that you can put a reservation (mid-late April), so if you’re tempted to get one of these you should do it now. You can find the figures at http://www.shopncsx.com/zeldafigure.aspx
Probably in one way or another, you’ve heard of Phil Fish – the developer who said modern Japanese games suck at this year’s GDC. Well, he did say “modern” right? Because why perhaps would a representation of the original Zelda’s title screen be at his indie game Fez? Take a look at the image below:
Above is the Legend of Zelda’s title screen. Below is Fez’ character Gomez’ house:
As Mr. Evans from Empty Lifebar have pointed out – the mountains that seemingly points down to the waterfall, the pink sky. I doubt Mr. Phil Fish never noticed this. Or maybe he did. I would have asked him on Twitter but alas, I think he’s not going to be there for a while.
Zelda Chronicles and every Zelda fan sites out there are keen with every homage the series gets in any form of media. It is common knowledge that a prolific actor actually named his daughter after the princess. We feature Deviant Art users who make illustrations from the franchise. We are critical when other video games don’t want to be compared with the Zelda-style dungeons even though the comparison is very valid.
Whether we’re just fooling our eyes on the image above, it certainly looks like it pays homage to Zelda, and let’s just leave it at that.
Also, it looks like Mr. Fish loved the old Japanese games he grew up with.
Shigeru Miyamoto was recently interviewed by Edge in which he speaks a little bit on a new Legend of zelda game for the Nintendo 3DS. Last year he actually mentioned that “A Link to the Past” would be on his list for a 3D remake for this new hardware, but now he says he’d rather make a new game starting from or using the same style as ALttP. Read his quote below.
“I think the answer would be the same if we’re talking about just porting,” he said, “but I think I’d be even more interested in creating something new maybe based on, or starting from, A Link To The Past. I think it’s important to bring some really new software.”
However, he would be relying on some other directors to be in charge of this game which could compromise his vision for an ALttP sequel.
“To be very honest and open, it really depends on the directors that have time at the moment as well,” he said. “Some directors, I can give them the title and I know they will do something great with it.
“Other directors I’m not so 100 per cent confident [in], so they’re the ones I’d rather take a more remake approach to the title. It really depends on that as well.”
Miyamoto wouldn’t be drawn on his favourite among the current crop of Nintendo directors, but he reserved special praise for one in particular: Koichi Kawamoto, who developed the concept demo that birthed the WarioWare series, and more recently created 3DS’s StreetPass Quest. Miyamoto says Kawamoto is “a very strong figure [who] will play a very important role in the future.”
