Miyamoto considers returning to Zelda: A Link to the Past

Shigeru Miyamoto recently discussed the possibility of reviving what many consider to be the Zelda franchise's magnum opus: A Link to the Past.

Shigeru Miyamoto recently discussed the possibility of reviving what many consider to be the Zelda franchise's finest installment: A Link to the Past.

In an interview with Edge, Miyamoto — who first breached the subject of another Zelda 3DS remake last November — said he was "interested in creating something new maybe based on, or starting from, A Link To The Past." The problem, he explained, is that he's currently tied up in a number of other projects, not the least of which being his unannounced title for the Wii U. Coming up with a leader for such a high profile revival would be difficult.

"To be very honest and open, it really depends on the directors that have time at the moment as well," Miyamoto said. "Some directors, I can give them the title and I know they will do something great with it. Other directors I'm not so 100 percent confident [in], so they're the ones I'd rather take a more remake approach to the title. It really depends on that as well."

On a more serendipitous note, today is the 20th anniversary of Link to the Past's North American release! Happy birthday, Link to the Past! Thanks for all the good times.
