A new Legend of Zelda title is in development for 3DS, series producer Eiji Aonuma confirmed.
“We are already preparing a new game, a game in the series for the Nintendo 3DS, but don’t think that it is a direct sequel to the Zelda titles released on DS,” said Aonuma during an interview with Portugeuse gaming site MyGames. “We are talking about a new game, but it takes much of what has been done on previous consoles.”
Fans have been asking for Majora’s Mask to get the 3DS remake treatment for quite some time. Does this new game rule out the possibility of Majora’s Mask joining Ocarina of Time? Aonuma doesn’t exactly negate the possibility, but says it’s not something they’d want to do so quickly.
“It’s something I’m asked about often and I assure you that it is something I’ve spoken to Miyamoto about,” said Aonuma. “But recently we released The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D as a remake. We are considering the idea, but it didn’t seem right to launch a remake one after another, so the next Zelda game on 3DS will be original.”
The latest Zelda release, Skyward Sword, is due for Wii on November 20.
