Nintendo not planning a Zelda 25th anniversary compilation

Posted on June 17, 2011 by (@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News

Last year, Nintendo released Super Mario All-Stars 25th Anniversary Edition in honor of Mario’s 25th anniversary. Zelda’s turning 25 this year as well, but Nintendo has no plans to introduce any sort of compilation.

Despite Nintendo of America’s interest to release another collection disc, both Satoru Iwata and Shigeru Miyamoto denied the proposal. Apparently they didn’t want to copy their plans from last year. Instead, Nintendo of Japan was interested in doing something more unique.

Nintendo is celebrating Zelda is a rather big way. Four Swords is heading to DSiWare later this year and both Ocarina of Time 3D and Skyward Sword will be out before the end of 2011. Additionally, concerts will be held in North America, Europe, and Japan. Two CD soundtracks will be made available – one for the concerts and one for Ocarina of Time 3D – and Nintendo is also preparing a special, golden Wii Remote Plus for the upcoming release of Zelda: Skyward Sword. Not too shabby, if you ask me!
