Miyamoto Wants A Link to the Past 3D
If the recent success of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D is indicative of anything, it's that you can take a beloved classic, revamp it with snazzy stereoscopic visuals, and re-release into the world to watch it soar once more. After having released the critically acclaimed Nintendo 64 title, Nintendo has been looking forward. The company has stated that there's a possibility that we'll get Majora's Mask 3D, but now, there's a chance that we may get a 3D remake of another classic.
In an interview with GamesRadar, Skyward Sword producer Eiji Aonuma revealed that a 3D version of A Link to the Past may be a possibility. "Well, actually, Mr. Miyamoto himself has been talking recently about going back to the 2D Zelda games, 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," explained Aonuma. "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."
Aonuma made it clear that he didn't really look into a 3D release of A Link to the Past. That said, he did explain that Miyamoto would really like to look into a re-release of that game. And why not? A Link to the Past is a SNES classic and one of the most beloved titles in the entire Zelda franchise. Giving it the 3D treatment certainly seems like a potentially awesome move on the part of Nintendo.
Whether A Link to the Past will get updated 3D graphics for the 3DS remains to be seen, but as long as there are people in Nintendo who want it, there's a big chance it could happen. Of course, we probably won't hear about it in the near future. Personally, I think a 3D version of A Link to the Past would be pretty damn sweet. Do it, Nintendo!
