The upcoming release of Nintendo Switch is stirring up the excitement among gamers. However, many are also concerned about the fate of "The Legend Of Zelda" 2D. Will it be phased out or will Nintendo Switch prove its worth as a hybrid system by finding a way to accommodate "The Legend Of Zelda" 2D.
According to IGN, Eiji Aonuma, "The Legend Of Zelda" series producer, has already addressed the issue in an interview with Game Informer. "The 3DS team and the Wii U team have different approaches to game development, so I don't necessarily want to combine them and have them think together, but rather have each think about what they can bring to Nintendo Switch from their own perspective," Eiji Aonuma said.
According to Techno Buffalo, "The Legend Of Zelda" 2D, though belonging to the aging versions of the franchise, is still one of the most played and favorite version of the players. It is classic, uncomplicated and gives the players an old school feel while playing.
Aonuma's statement has teased the curiosity of the gamers if Nintendo will be revamping "The Legend Of Zelda" 2D into a Nintendo Switch compatible version. The possibility of that to happen is very ominous and even Eiji Aonuma himself said so.
The possible revamping of "The Legend Of Zelda" 2D into a Nintendo Switch-compatible version is not a shocker for the players because this isn't the first time that Nintendo has mentioned the possibility of creating a game after "The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild." In fact, Aonuma has reportedly mentioned that he and the rest of the creative team are looking into maximizing the features of Nintendo Switch with existing storied series.
During the E3 2016, Aonuma also mentioned that the 2d Zelda Tri-Force Heroes are being considered as a possible stepping stone for a multi-player Zelda after "The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild." Speaking of "Breath Of The Wild," Nintendo has recently unveiled an Expansion Pass to be enjoyed by players who have already finished the game.
Nintendo Switch release date is all set on Mar. 3 with "The Legend Of Zelda" Breath Of The Wild" one of the many games included in the console.
