“Zelda doesn’t fit into any gaming genre perfectly. Of course there are certain techniques and certain basics that are similar throughout the series, but really what we are striving to do with each new Zelda is offer a new world for people to enjoy and to experience. Over 25 years, while we’ve been working on the Zelda series and creating the games, we’ve always had a wealth of ideas, which I think is what has kept us going all these years.”
– The Legend of Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma tells MCV about Link’s timeless appeal. Skyward Sword releases for Wii this week.

“Even Mr. Miyamoto himself has been talking recently about going back to the 2D Zelda games. In particular the ones that were designed with multiple levels to the world like A Link to the Past, and taking those 2D graphics and recreating them in 3D so that you could get a sense for the depth of those worlds. That’s something that might be interesting to do, so I would say there might be a possibility of something like that in the future.” – Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma to GamesRadar on the possibility of a Link to the Past remake.

“I’ve never actually finished [Legend of Zelda]. I almost feel like there’s still no game more difficult than it. Every time I try to play it I end up getting ‘Game Over’ a few too many times and giving up partway through. Certainly after playing the original Zelda for the first time, I didn’t ever think that I wanted to make a game like that.” – Zelda boss Eiji Aonuma, speaking to Game Informer as part of its Zelda cover feature.
