Super Mario 3D Land director Yoshiaki Koizumi had a chat with the Official Nintendo Magazine. During the interview, he was asked whether he was interested in remaking any Zelda games. He said:
“I guess I can’t really say one title specifically because then the world will expect us to make it and I’ll get into a whole lot of trouble!
I can say that I really would like to see a lot of those games that use 3D worlds on 2D display just so I could see what they look like in 3D and see what kind of different experiences people would have playing through them on a 3D display. So in that sense I would love to see Sunshine and both Galaxy games presented in 3D, and a lot of the Zelda [games] would be interesting too.”
So, this is just speculative but I think this shows that Nintendo are going to be remaking lots of classic games for the 3DS. Whether this is a good or bad thing, I’m not sure. It seems generally a good thing to me, as long as Nintendo doesn’t stay stuck in the past and dedicates most of its resources to developing original software.
