Speaking to Edge in a recent interview, Miyamoto shared his thoughts on what the future may hold for Zelda fans, as a new game inspired by the 2D classic is close to the top of his to do list. When asked about the possibility of porting A Link to the Past to the 3DS, Miyamoto responded by saying, "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."
No arguments there big guy. New and original software is the name of the game, and I believe I speak for the entire Nintendo fan-base when I say that a completely new Link to the Past inpired title would be absolutely amazing.
Mr. Miyamoto, we're holding you to this one.
