Aonuma says Skyward Sword and Twilight Princess might get HD remakes if some other studio does it

Thursday, 12th September 2013 00:58 GMT By Ewan Miller

Legend of Zelda series director Eiji Aonuma has told Polygon that while the his team doesn’t have the “bandwidth” to remake Skyward Sword or Twilight Princess in HD, “but maybe it will happen if someone else does it”. The conversation came as a part of Aonuma mentioning that his team demo’d the Wii Zeldas in HD before eventually deciding Wind Waker needed a remastering most.

“When we were thinking about the new Zelda for Wii U, which is something we’re actually working on, we needed to experiment with a variety of graphic styles and it was part of that process we took some existing Zelda games and made them HD just to see what would happen.

“In doing so we realized that the Wind Waker graphic style, the art style, really represented well on the Wii U given the graphic capabilities of the new system. It really brought that world to life.”

While Aonuma wasn’t directly announcing a remake, Japanese developer Grezzo has previously worked on the 3DS port of Ocarina of Time and the 2011 Anniversary Edition of Four Swords.

So out of Skyward Sword and Twilight Princess, which would prefer to get a nice looking remake?

Thanks, Polygon.

    Of those two, Skyward Sword would certainly fare better from a HD remake, but I’d rather they stopped having dialogue about remakes of old games and concentrated on new games, and/or new franchises.

    I know he said if another studio does it, but still…

    I don’t mind the remakes, especially if they are focusing on new titles while other developers work on the remake.

    I never really got to play Kingdom Hearts or Wind Waker and these new remakes offer people a chance to play them. And those who have played them, might want to enjoy them again.
