Legendary Zela series producer Eiji Aonuma has taken to Wii U social network Miiverse to discuss the recently unveiled The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past successor. Aonuma says development on the game is progressing well and that Nintendo hopes to share more news at a later date. Here’s the message that Aonuma posted on Miiverse.
“Hello everyone, Eiji Aonuma here! In the latest Nintendo Direct, we announced an entirely new Zelda game for Nintendo 3DS, which takes place in the world of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past!”
“I’m sure those of you familiar with A Link to the Past could imagine what kind of game a sequel would be – but I think you’ll be surprised at quite how different it is when you actually play it!”
“Still, that’s difficult to convey just through an announcement, so we’re releasing a 3D video in the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS as well.”
“Experience Hyrule reborn in a highly realistic three-dimensional world. A new story and fresh dungeon puzzles await you in this brand-new Zelda game! Development is progressing well, so expect to hear more about it soon!”
MaJoRa, a member of the Zelda Fan Game Central community, has spectacularly managed to render the acclaimed over world of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time in the 2D top-down view that was seen in the critically acclaimed Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. The ambitious project has taken roughly two long years to complete.
“Not to say this project is over by a long shot, I am going to see how far I can take this. I feel like ending now is too soon, I will find a new way to step this up.” He is taking suggestions and constructive criticism about his work, more of which may be seen at the link below.

Shigeru Miyamoto has expressed his interest in developing a remake of the highly regarded Legend of Zelda: Link To The Past presumably for the Nintendo 3DS.
Whether or not we will see a Nintendo 3DS remake of The Legend of Zelda: Link To The Past remains to be seen but it would inevitably be a huge hit for Nintendo and would go down exceptionally well with the fans.
I think A Link to the Past. Do you remember Xevious? It’s two-layered and I really wanted to create that at the time. So to see Link to the Past in two layers would be quite attractive for me.
