Speaking to Portuguese site MyGames
, The Legend of Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma shed some light on the franchise's future on the 3DS. Aonuma noted that a new Zelda title is indeed in the works for Nintendo's handheld, which isn't too surprising in itself. Given the success
of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
on the 3DS, however, it may be somewhat surprising to learn that the next Zelda will not be a remake of Majora's Mask
. The title will be a new adventure, though Aonuma states it will utilize ideas from previous console iterations of the series (a boomerang, perhaps?).
He didn't rule out the possibility of Majora's Mask
in the future, stating that he has even talked with Zelda creator Shigeru Miyamoto about bringing the bizarre sequel to 3DS. Aonuma added that Nintendo is "seriously considering" the possibility, but felt that it wouldn't be right releasing another remake directly after Ocarina of Time
. Let's just hope the 3DS version isn't haunted
