During a recent Livestream where renowned leaker Jeff Grubb was discussing E3 2021, he mentioned that Nintendo has “all these Zelda Games”, emphasis on plural games. Given his credible track record, it’s safe to assume that Nintendo has multiple Zelda remakes up their sleeve.
During his “Game Mess” live stream where he was taking questions from the viewers, one of the viewers asked if Nintendo would talk about Metroid Prime 4 at E3 2021. To that, Grubb gave a disappointing response saying that Nintendo won’t say a word about Metroid Prime 4 till they get past a lot of “other stuff”.
The “other stuff” included previously teased Zelda Breath of the Wild 2, new hardware and “all these other Zelda games we want to get out and re-released.”
The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening and The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword have both received a Switch Remake. However, there are numerous other Zelda games that can be remastered or remade for Switch. Add Nintendo’s affectionate nature to remaster games and sell them again, multiple Zelda remakes in the future don’t sound like a pipedream.
Possible Zelda remakes
- The Legend of Zelda
- Zelda II: The Adventure of Link
- The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
- The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
- The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask
- The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons
- The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages
- The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
- The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures (Co-op title)
- The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap
- The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
- The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass
- The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks
- The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
- The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes (focuses on multiplayer)
Some of the games, such as Twilight Princess and Ocarina of Time, were bigger hits than others and players would love to see them on Switch. However, despite the high hopes, take this rumor with a grain of salt. Grubb did not explicitly express the existence of multiple Zelda remakes and it could be dismissed simply as a slip of tongue.
