It's probably too early to get excited, but it seems that older 2D Zelda games could be in line for giving them a 3D makeover. The news comes via Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma, who recently told GamesRadar
that Shigeru Miyamoto has been "talking about" revisiting 2D Zelda games, specifically "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."
In context, it sounds as if Aonuma is referring to applying 3D effects to the existing titles – perhaps akin to the 3D Classics
already available for 3DS – rather than a full-blown polygonal remake. As GamesRadar points out, A Link to the Past
, with its multiple tiers, would certainly lend itself to 3D effects. What it wouldn't lend itself too: Helping us save money.
