Sorry, but a Zelda 2 Remake Isn't Being Planned

Sorry, but a Zelda 2 Remake Isn't Being Planned

Inti Creates boss would like you to know he's not working on it.

Those holding out for a remake of the Adventure of Link should probably not get their hopes up. After saying in an interview a while ago that he'd like to work on The Legend of Zelda sequel, Inti Creates president Takuya Aizu is clarifying his statement today to remind folks that it was purely speculative.

In an interview with NintendoLife, Aizu says it "wasn't so much that [he] wanted to make it from a business perspective."

"That story kind of blew up, but it wasn't really something I was thinking about from a business perspective that I would like to make it, but simply that if I could make a game using Nintendo characters that it would be The Adventure of Link," Aizu told NintendoLife. "And I still think that! But our company and I don't really think it is realistic that we could make a game using Nintendo characters."

Even though Nintendo's been on a roll with remakes, including both Link's Awakening and the excellent Metroid: Samus Returns on the 3DS, it's also clear the Inti Creates boss was speculating. When asked what game he wanted to work on, he just shouted out his favorite.

"Of course, Nintendo has loads of appealing characters, and plenty that you could make games with, that's really great," Aizu says. "I sort of let it be known that I love The Adventure of Link; there are plenty of other great games, but that is my favourite."

While Zelda 2 is a bizarrely endearing game that could use a remake, maybe it's best to take things one at a time. Link's Awakening is still on the way, alongside a blind-side sequel to Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, so we've got plenty of Zelda to carry us for now.
