There Will Be No Zelda 25th Anniversary Collection
Posted by James Newton
Good news, bad news?
Nintendo is celebrating 25 years since the very first Legend of Zelda, but whereas last year the company celebrated Mario's quarter-century with the much-maligned Super Mario All-Stars 25th Anniversary Edition, the Hero of Time will receive no such compendium.
According to the latest Japanese Iwata Asks article (via Nintendo World Report) Nintendo of America suggested a 25th anniversary collection of Link outings, but Nintendo of Japan wasn't keen on the idea, with Miyamoto and Iwata stating that doing the same thing two years in a row isn't very Nintendo-like.
Of course, Nintendo is still celebrating Zelda's 25th anniversary in a multitude of ways, with orchestral Zelda concerts, a gold Wii Remote Plus for Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, a free download of Four Swords and of course the release of Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D. Would you like a 25th anniversary collection though? What games would you choose for it, and on what format?
