Hello and welcome to the latest edition of Zelda You: Our Stories, our now bi-weekly regular feature series that is all about two things, our love for Zelda and our love for talking about Zelda. We already kicked the series off with staff stories, but now that the Miketendo64 staff have had their say, we’re sharing the stories that You have sent in to us, so what are we waiting for? It’s time to begin!
Today’s story comes from LoruleWonder, a handheld Zelda fan looking for some answers.
LoruleWonder: -It’s Time For Answers!:
“I’m under the impression this is a place I can talk about whatever I want as long as it is Zelda related, well I know of one thing I want to talk about! During the lead-up to E3 this year, there were rumours that Breath of the Wild wouldn’t be the only Zelda game shown off during the event. This obviously didn’t happen and all talk regarding the rumoured Zelda game for the 3DS ceased as we spent the following months distracted by talking about Breath of the Wild instead. Then last month, things got a little interesting.
A reported thread appeared on Neogaf, which said Zelda 3DS news was coming. It got a couple of responses and then it was gone, only to be replaced by another one. Now I don’t remember the name of the guy who started the thread, but I do know what it said. Nintendo are working on another Zelda game, nothing new there as Nintendo have confessed to have a number of teams working on Zelda titles, but this one team are working on a game for the 3DS and that game is planned to release next year. Only Nintendo apparently have no intention of announcing it until Breath of the Wild releases. Now that sounds about right as the last thing Nintendo would want to do is shove another 3DS title down our throats while we’re still desperately waiting for a release date to be announced for the Wii U/Switch instalment.
My problem with this though is the fact I was ready to rule it off as a hoax, except I’m not the only one who is talking about it. I’ve seen a few tweets talking it. I’ve seen it mentioned on reddit, so is this an elaborate hoax meant to get our hopes up, or is this 3DS title an actual thing and it is releasing next year? Now that we know Switch isn’t 3DS compatible, I think it’s safe to assume Nintendo will bring at least one more Zelda title to the 3DS, it makes a lot of sense since they just reconfirmed support for their current handheld platform. But I want answers. I need answers and I don’t want to wait until next year to get them! We’ve already waited long enough for Breath of the Wild and we’re still having to wait.”
