A new depth for a 2D world.

After a successful Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time remake on 3DS, Zelda creator Shigeru Miyamoto is looking into remaking 2D Zelda games in 3D, according to Skyward Sword producer Eiji Aonuma.

Asked by GamesRadar whether they’d ever consider making another 2D Zelda game, Aonuma had this to say:

“Well actually, even Mr. Miyamoto himself has been talking recently about going back to the 2D Zelda games,” he told the site, “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.”

Skyward Sword, the series’ latest release, is due for Wii on November 20.

    Didn’t they say they also wanted to remake Majora’s Mask? And actually make a new Zelda game for the 3DS (non remake)? And now this one?

    Dayum, Myamoto is pulling a Nomura on us here.

    This sounds cool. I hope this would be for the Wii U, instead of the 3DS.

    I am tired of the remakes but I have to say that I would be excited for this. A Link to the Past is one of my all-time favorite games.
