Eiji Aonuma visited Miiverse today and left a couple of messages for fans following the Zelda news announced during today’s Nintendo Direct.
Aonuma first commented on the Link to the Past sequel for 3DS. He imagines that series aficionados “could imagine what kind of game this would be”, but feels “you’ll be surprised at quite how different it is when you actually play it”. Aonuma added that developing is steadily progressing, so it won’t be long before a new update about the game is shared.
The message in full:
Hello everyone, Eiji Aonuma here! In the latest Nintendo Direct, we announced an entirely new Zelda game for Nintendo 3DS that takes place in the world of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past! I’d like to introduce it to all of you in the Miiverse community, too. We announce it towards the end of this video.
I’m sure that those of you familiar with A Link to the Past could imagine what kind of game this would be – but I think that you’ll be surprised at quite how different it is when you actually play it!
Still, that’s quite a difficult sentiment to convey through just an announcement alone, so we’re releasing a 3D video in Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS as well.
Experience Hyrule reborn in a highly realistic three-dimensional world. A new story and new dungeon puzzles await you in this brand-new Zelda game! Development is progressing well, so look forward to hearing more about it soon!
In a separate post, Aonuma discussed the news that Zelda: Oracle of Seasons/Ages will be available on the 3DS eShop late next month.
I told you here before that The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons and The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages will be available for Virtual Console on Nintendo 3DS systems soon. Thank you all for your patience. I’m here to announce that they will be available to purchase in the Nintendo eShop from the 30th of May!
I’m sure some of you have seen the reaction of the Japanese players in our community and wanted to play yourselves. Well, now you can! I hope you enjoy linking both stories together!
