The lights are on
In an interview with Portugese website MyGames, famed Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma confirmed the team is working on a new Zelda 3DS title that won't be a sequel to the DS games.
“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," he said. "We are talking about a new game, but it takes much of what has been done on previous handhelds.”
Aonuma was later asked about a possible Majora’s Mask remake for 3DS after the commercial success the Ocarina of Time remake saw on the handheld earlier this year.
“It’s something I’m asked about often and I assure you that it is something I’ve spoken to Miyamoto about. 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.”
Aonuma dropped some hints about a new Zelda 3DS title in our October issue, saying "It will be a game in which having 3D will mean something."
