New Zelda 3DS Rumors

Zelda 3DS has not had as much attention as Zelda Wii U in terms of leaked info and interviews. That does not mean it is not as interesting though. I want to hear about it as much as I want to hear about Zelda Wii U. Zelda Wii U is going to have HD graphics which is amazing but Zelda 3DS will be just as good. I expect Nintendo will start releasing more information soon as Zelda Wii U starts getting closer as well. It would be great to have an Ocarina of Time themed Symphony Just like what they’re doing with the Twilight Symphony. I have found two great articles about the same Zelda 3DS rumor that was featured on 4chan.

“A recent rumor popped up over at 4chan and was featured over at ScrewAttack.com. The rumor cites the potential of two new Legend of Zelda titles for the Nintendo 3DS, much like Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages. The thumbnail image you see below is the logo that was posted over at 4chan. The text underneath the images translates to Fire Prophecy and Ice Prophecy. Obviously these are just Rumors and they shouldn’t be taken as official announcements.

 

Back in November of 2011, Eiji Aonuma had commented on the next Legend of Zelda title for the Nintendo 3DS and he had this to say about it.

“We are already preparing a new game, a game in the series for the Nintendo 3DS, but don’t think that it is a direct sequel to the Zelda titles releasedon DS. We are talking about a new game, but it takes much of what has been done on previous consoles.”

Shortly after, Sam Claiborn of IGN reported on the upcoming Legend of Zelda titles and had this to say.

“Nintendo is working on at least two other Zelda games right now, and I can’t wait to see them.”

We initially believed that this meant a Legend of Zelda game was being developed for the Nintendo 3DS and another one was being developed for the Nintendo Wii U. Obviously this all just rumors at this point and 4chan is not exactly a reliable source. Virtually anybody around the world that has artistic ability could have photoshopped the above image and posted it over at 4chan anonymously.

However, given Nintendo’s recent statements and this rumor, it opens the case that Nintendo might do another dual-release Legend of Zelda title. They have been doing this with the Pokemon titles for the last 14 years and they have been incredibly successful. Even when they tried it with the Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons, those games were critical successes and sold very well. I certainly think there is a market for these types of games and I think it is certainly a plausible idea for Nintendo going forward.

What do you make of these rumors? Do you think this would be a good idea? Would you prefer a stand-alone game or a pair of games? Let us know by posting in the comments below.”

 

 

What do you think about this? Do you think its real or fake? Here is the other article by Screwattack.

 

 

 

“Back in early November, series producer Eiji Aonuma confirmed that there is a new Zelda game in development for the 3DS.

“We are already preparing a new game, a game in the series for the Nintendo 3DS, but don’t think that it is a direct sequel to the Zelda titles released on DS. We are talking about a new game, but it takes much of what has been done on previous consoles.”

So it’ll be a 3D adventure, rather than a top-down one. Aonuma went on to say that although they’re considering remaking Majora’s Mask, the next 3DS game would be a brand new original title.

A little after this story broke out, Sam Claiborn of IGN made a bold statement,

“Nintendo is working on at least two other Zelda games right now, and I can’t wait to see them.”

Well as of today, it seems like his statement is true. Although not announced officially, this image surfaced from the bowels of 4chan.

Thanks for the find, GenericHipster!

It could be fake, but it’s hard to tell. Simply analyzing it in Photoshop won’t really tell me anything either.

The subtitles for each game are 火をプロフェシ and アイスをプロフェシー, which according to Google Translate means Fire Prophecy and Ice Prophecy, respectively.

If the rumor is true, we’re going to be something like the simultaneous release of Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages on the Game Boy Color. Only now with 3D! This could be awesome.”

I loved Oracle of Seasons and Ages personally and I think this would be pretty cool. I loved how you could link the two games and get the special items and ending. If they did that same style and maybe introduced some new items like  a net or a mace/flail you could propel out of an arm mounted cannon thing. I would like to give credit for the articles to Zeldadungeon and Screwattack. I would also like to give credit for the Info to 4chan. Tell me what you think about this rumor in the comments.
