The Legend of Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma has announced that an all new Zelda game is in development for the 3DS. This is not another remake, since the dev team felt it wouldn’t be right to release one remake after another. This is an all new game in the franchise.
Aonuma, however, says that this won’t exactly be a sequel to the two DS Zelda games, but it will utilize many functions in past games of the franchise. However, they still are considering a Majora’s Mask remake for the 3DS.
“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 told Portugese site MyGames. “We are talking about a new game, but it takes much of what has been done on previous consoles.”
“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.”
