Post Another Remake Confirmed • Posted: Fri Jun 15, 2012 7:30 am
While this news is a few days old, I felt it should be discussed. Why? Because Majora's Mask and A Link to the Past, that's why.

In a recent interview with Miyamoto, IGN managed to fish the following about a remake. This isn't necessarily "confirmed", but it might as well be. Nintendo knows the money is there :P

“We haven’t quite decided yet, whether we’re going to do A Link to the Past, because there’s also the possibility of doing a remake of Majora’s Mask. This is something we’ve certainly been talking about and doing a little bit of experimenting with, to figure out which way we’re going to go. (Fans will have to wait) just a little while longer (to hear a decision).

We have so many goals right now. We’re always looking at expanding our audience and giving people the opportunity to get their hands on 3DS and see what kind of fun gaming experiences they can have. And now, we’re also tasked with pushing the Wii U. So we have lots of good opportunities in terms of thinking about which Zelda game is going to be best for which purpose.” - Shigeru Miyamoto

I am torn over this situation. While A Link to the Past is my favourite Zelda game, Majora's Mask is another. MM would make sense to follow in Ocarina of Time's footsteps, but a completely overhauled and expanded game for the Wii U would just blow my mind (like what should have been done with OoT). A Link to the Past can't be made any better except prettier or adding some extra dungeons, trying to change it too much (like jumping to a 3D world) would be disastrous.

So really: Give us a remake of Majora's Mask. A Link to the Past would only incorporate tacky features in a remake, unless handled unbelievably well.

You could simply have aLttP upgraded to something like say, Four Swords Adventure graphics while keeping it in 3D overlook and then add 3D to that (if so desired). I don't think they would overhaul the whole thing, but leave it like itself just with graphical improvements. They'd treat it more like OoT.

MM on the other hand I could see them changing things around and such. There are things that can easily be added and even story bits, if done correctly, would only add to the experience and expand upon the Mythology behind (and of) the game.

I want them to attempt to make ALTTP 3D <.< It's a way to play the game that has never been there before and it would probably add a new dimension (see what I did there) to its story and gameplay.

It would make sense to have a Majora's Mask remake for the 3DS since Ocarina of Time had one. But A Link to the Past is considered to be one of the best classic Zelda titles out there. It would be interesting to see it with better graphics and gameplay. I don't have a 3DS anyway. So I'm not entirely sure which game it should be.
