With a gem of an HD remake in the form of revamped GameCube classic The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker, one could only think the sky is the limit with reworking old Nintendo classics into revamped hits. However, according to Zelda creator Shigeru Miyamoto, revamping old classics isn\’t Nintendo’s main focus right now. Miyamoto noted that future HD remakes would more than likely not be done in house at Nintendo but rather by outside partners.
\”HD remakes might be a good project for development partners, so that’s something I hope we can introduce in the future,\” said Miyamoto.
Miyamoto pointed to Mario’s newest up and coming outing, Super Mario 3D World as to what type of games and things Nintendo wants to focus on right now. In other words, working on the same old spicy italian pasta with some new secret ingredients added in. He went on to say that if your the type of player looking for glimpses of past games in other games then there’s a treasure trove waiting to be found. One such treasure has been hinted at in the upcoming The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds which is said to have a \”glimpse\” of Zelda classic and fan favorite Majora’s mask tied in somehow.
Miyamoto stressed that in the end the main goal is to find a nice entryway for new players who haven\’t encountered a certain series before. Once they get that magical taste of a Nintendo franchise then that \”glimpse\” has been captured in time until the next big installment and then the magic continues from there on out. It’s what Nintendo does best.
