Nintendo Has "Ideas" for a New 3DS Zelda Game

Nintendo Has

While all eyes are on the as-yet unnamed Wii U entry in the Legend of Zelda series that was unveiled at E3 last month (pictured above), Nintendo hasn't forgotten about its handheld console. 

Speaking during Nintendo's 74th Annual General Meeting of Shareholders, Zelda series creator Shigeru Miyamoto talked about the future of the franchise on both home consoles and portable ones.

"We are gradually changing the structure of “The Legend of Zelda” series, and we are preparing to newly evolve the series for Wii U," said Miyamoto, speaking of the open-world structure of The Legend of Zelda for Wii U, which will allow players the freedom to approach the game in their own way.

"In addition to that, we have ideas for Nintendo 3DS which we have not announced yet, so I hope you will look forward to them," he continued.

It's been less then a year since the last original Zelda game for 3DS, A Link Between Worlds, released, and fans have been clamoring for a 3DS remake of The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, following The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D's release in 2011. 

However, Miyamoto's phrasing suggests that it's another new game, rather than a Majora's Mask port, that Nintendo are looking into.

I wish Nintendo would jump onto the HD bandwagon, such an awesome back catalogue- Imagine an HD pack of Majora's Mask, Twilight Princess, Skyward Sword, & of course Ocarina.

While I'm on the wish list buzz, how about Metroid Prime Trilogy HD? YES PLEASE!!

Then there's all those JRPG's that I missed on Wii because SD just hurts my eyes - The Last Story , Panadoras Tower and with the upcoming "sequel" a Xenobalde Chronicles HD remake would go down a treat..

The original picture was the one shown from E3 2011 I think with Link fighting a big spider. http://www.wiizelda.net/news/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/zelda-wii-u.png
