Fans wondering what Zelda game will be remade next don’t have any solid leads to go on, but a new rumor circulating is that Twilight Princess will be remade for the New Nintendo 3DS. Of course, it should go without saying that the rumor is just that… a rumor. It is in no way confirmed by Nintendo. The image paired with this article is also fake, just a picture made to go with this article.
The rumor comes from multiple GameStop employees who, over a span of days, have confirmed that their local Nintendo representative has said Twilight Princess could be the next Zelda remake, and it would be for the New Nintendo 3DS and maybe also for PC since is a really popular platform and also use 1 of the 11 Best Gaming Desks for PC or Console Gamers in 2017. The employees, who shall remain unnamed due to not being authorized to speak to the media, have said a woman that works as a representative for Nintendo and visits multiple GameStop locations to deal with Nintendo products has been buzzing about the rumor. The woman mentioned handles Nintendo demo units placed in GameStop stores, among other duties, and already has the New Nintendo 3DS and Majora’s Mask 3D, according to the employees.
They did say she couldn’t officially confirm the news, but she has mentioned the rumor on multiple occasions. If the rumor is true, it would line up with Nintendo’s recently-announced strategy for more remakes to come for the New Nintendo 3DS. After all, with games like Xenoblade Chronicles (originally released for the Wii) being ported to the New Nintendo 3DS, we know that the upgraded processor under the hood can handle Wii remakes.
What fans do know for certain is that Majora’s Mask 3D launches on Friday, February 13 in the United States.
Fans may have wanted an HD Twilight Princess, and that may still come, but if this rumor does turn out to be true, would you be excited to see Twilight Princess on the New Nintendo 3DS? Would you rather see Skyward Sword on the new handheld?
