A Link To The Past could be the next Zelda game to get a 3D revamp...
According to Eiji Aonuma, Producer on The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Nintendo may be considering 3D revamps of some of its original 2D Zelda games such as the SNES classic, A Link To The Past.
"Well actually, even Mr. Miyamoto himself has been talking recently about going back to the 2D Zelda games," Aonuma-san told Gamesradar, "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. 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."
This news comes a few months after Nintendo revamped what's arguably its definitive Zelda title, the N64's Ocarina of Time for the 3DS with refined textures and autostereoscopic 3D visuals.
Nintendo has already released some of its classic 2D Zelda games via the Virtual Console hub on the 3DS eStore – the original Legend of Zelda for the NES and its sequel, The Adventure of Link both arrived in September for 3DS Ambassadors, while Link's Awakening DX (originally on the Game Boy Color) was released in June.
As they are emulated versions of these games, none of them utilise the 3DS' autostereoscopic 3D display. Nonetheless, Nintendo may consider releasing other Zelda titles via the 3D Classics range, which features iconic titles revamped with the 3D effect. Games such as Xevious and Excitebike are currently available through this service.
