For many gamers, Zelda: Link to the Past is one of the best games of the 16 bit era, and perhaps one of the better Zelda games released (I’ll leave out the debates between the 16 bit classics and 64 bit Ocarina of Time out of this article though!).
In a recent interview Miyamoto had with Edge “I think the answer would be the same if we’re talking about just porting, 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.”
For several months now there has been information that Nintendo’s resident genius (Miyamoto) has had his eye on The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past. When further questioned as to whether the title would be a remake of the old classic or something entirely new, he said it depended upon the directors available to him at the time.
He went on to say that some directors would do “something great” with a fresh retro approach, while others would “take a more remake approach to the title.” Miyamoto seemed especially enthused by director Koichi Kawamoto (known for his work on WarioWare series and the 3DS’s Find Mii games), as likely having “very important role in the future.”
