Miyamoto Keen On New Zelda Based on Link to the Past

So are we

Last year, Shigeru Miyamoto talked about Link to the Past on 3DS, and he's been at it again on a recent press trip to Paris.

Speaking to Edge, Miyamoto said he's still interested in bringing Link's 16-bit adventure to the 3D Classics range, but he has something else in mind:

I think the answer would be the same if we're talking about just porting, but I think I'd be even more interested in creating something new maybe based on, or starting from, A Link To The Past. I think it's important to bring some really new software.

A revamped revisit of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past would be a dream come true for many gamers, but Miyamoto's not sure the timing is right, as many of his most trusted game directors are busy with other projects. It's OK; over 20 years after Link to the Past, there's no rush for a direct sequel.
