The father of all things Zelda was recently quizzed as to whether Retro Studios could work on a new entry in the Legend of Zelda series.
The team where behind the successful Wii reboot of the Donkey Kong Country franchise last year, and Metroid Prime titles previously, leading fans to ponder whether Retro could help Nintendo produce a new game in the long-running adventure franchise.
Shigeru Miyamoto confirmed to IGN that the whilst Retro could certainly "work on an entire Zelda game amongst themselves", it would require a fair bit of collaboration between the studio and the Zelda team back in homeland Japan.
Both development houses are beavering away at their own projects, to the possibility fot a Retro-developed Legend of Zelda title will have to remain a prospect for the future.
If you were going to have that happen in the US at Retro, that would be kind of difficult for them to be able to coordinate. Certainly they're too busy for that sort of thing right now. It would probably require me to be involved to a great extent as well, so I would have to get over quite a bit too. I'd probably have to live in Texas...
For now you'll have to dream about just what Retro is working on, with an reveal a fair while away.
Do you think Nintendo should hand over, or collaborate closely with a studio like Retro to produce a new Legend of Zelda game, akin to Capcom's efforts with Minish Cap?
