Following comments made in a previous interview with Edge, legendary Nintendo developer, Shigeru Miyamoto, again addressed his desires to revive the classic Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past for 3DS.

"I think the answer would be the same if we're talking about just porting," he told Edge. "But I think I'd be even more interested in creating something new maybe based on, or starting from, A Link To The Past. I think it's important to bring some really new software."

He also offered, however, that if any such project were to get off the ground, he himself would not be at its helm and that it would depend on the availability of directors, some of whom he's not so confident.

"To be very honest and open, it really depends on the directors that have time at the moment as well," he said. "Some directors, I can give them the title and I know they will do something great with it. Other directors I'm not so 100 percent confident [in], so they're the ones I'd rather take a more remake approach to the title. It really depends on that as well."

Before closing out, they also asked the revered game designer where the F-Zero series is, which seems like a no-brainer for 3DS treatment, though Miyamoto apparently disagrees.

"I think at the time it was a really big surprise, a new thing, a product that made sense," he told them, referring to its SNES debut. "I don't see with current hardware how you could create a similar surprise.

"But maybe with future hardware, with Wii U coming up, maybe we could create something that does make sense, either as a smaller game, or a fully fledged title."

Would you play a straight port of A Link to the Past, or prefer a 3Dified remake or reimagining? Maybe a direct sequel? And all I can say about F-Zero is that they'd definitely need to bring on board SEGA's Toshihiro Nagoshi, who was responsible for the brilliant F-Zero GX on GameCube. Drop us your thoughts in the Comments section.

The fact that they still refuse to release LttP as a VirtualConsole game is testament to how well it would sell. It, along with Secret of Mana, is the kind of game which I would repeatedly buy when it's re-released on each console.

They need to hurry up and release it. But any kind of port would be awesome, whether it were one that makes use of the dual screens, or whether they decided to port it over to the OOT engine.

For 3DS, not Wii.

A Link to the Past could very well be my favourite Zelda game. I'd love to see a 3D remake, keeping the top-down perspective. Or even a 2D remake with nice, high-resolution sprites like Rayman Origins.

Should I just cement my argument by quoting myself, Mantorok?

I think Mantorok misunderstood what you meant.

I think so too.

Here, I'll make it clearer: LttP is available for Wii Virtual Console, but not 3DS Virtual Console.

LttP remake would be good as long is it kept the top down style or even better make a master quest version like they did with OoT.
