The team behind the Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask 3DS re-releases is handling the upcoming Switch remake.
The Legend of Zelda is going to be a busy little series for a while. We recently saw the launch of the indie-developed Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancer, while a sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has also been announced. But before we get to that, later this year the Switch will be seeing the release of the remake of The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening.
That remake, as it turns out, is not being developed in-house by Nintendo. In a recent interview with Kotaku, series producer Eiji Aonuma confirmed that Link’s Awakening for the Switch is being developed by Japanese developer Grezzo, while his own team works on the Breath of the Wild sequel.
In case you don’t know, Grezzo do have experience with working on Zelda titles- especially remakes. The 3DS versions of Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask were both handled by Grezzo. The developer has also worked on other games such as Tri Force Heroes, Ever Oasis, and the 3DS version of Luigi’s Mansion, released last year.
The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening is out on September 20 for the Switch.
