The Legend of Zelda has a storied history as one of the grandest video game franchises ever conceived. While gamers talk about every title in the series to incredible degrees, two revered titles that have been talked about a lot lately are A Link to the Past and Majora’s Mask. Nintendo has hinted at 3DS remakes for both of these, and when you think about it, the company really can’t go wrong either way.
In a recent statement to IGN, series creator and legendary developer Shigeru Miyamoto discussed the possibility of either title getting a 3DS remake. “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,” said Miyamoto. “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.”
Currently, Nintendo is working on releasing the Wii U, but its focus on the 3DS hasn’t been deterred. According to good ol’ Shiggy, the company is trying to find ways to bring compelling content to both platforms, and obviously, figuring out what to do with Zelda, one of the biggest Nintendo IPs around, requires a lot of thought, planning, and experimentation.
Nintendo could very easily get away with developing 3DS remakes of both A Link to the Past and Majora’s Mask. Hell, I’m sure the company could get away with remaking the two titles for both the Wii U and 3DS based on the fact that so many gamers love Zelda, and if we see some new content or a new version of a beloved title, we’ll gladly throw our money at the developers.
Personally, I’m split between the two titles. But what would you want to see on the 3DS: A Link to the Past or Majora’s Mask?
