Miyamoto Says He’d Like To Make A Spirtual Sequel To A LINK TO THE PAST. Well Do It!
Shigeru Miyamoto hasn’t rocked out on Zelda game since 1991’s A Link To The Past, but the dude is jonesing now. Spitting some verbage (what?) with Edge Magazine, the Lord of Nintendo says he’s up for a spiritual sequel to the son of a bitch. In a certain capacity.
Speaking to Edge Magazine, Miyamoto expanded on previous comments about a game in the style of A Link to the Past–which has been mentioned before by current Zelda mastermind Eiji Aonuma– on the 3DS:
“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, the creator of Mario cautioned that he wouldn’t be leading the development on such a game, were it to happen:
“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.”
Of course it’d be for the 3DS. Son of a bitch.
