Zelda Remakes Still Part of Nintendo's Quest

Miyamoto weighing up two distinct options
Ever since The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D arrived on 3DS, fans of the series have been eager to see what's next. Our team had hopes, before they were cruelly dashed, that an all-new Zelda entry would be teased for 3DS at E3. Judging on comments made by Shigeru Miyamoto to IGN, however, it seems that Nintendo is prioritising the potential revival of two classics in the franchise.
The identity of the two titles is hardly a surprise, with Miyamoto reiterating previous teases that A Link to the Past and Majora's Mask are on the agenda. He also went on to say that consideration would be given to expanding the audience for both 3DS and Wii U with its Zelda entries, so he may not be talking exclusively about 3DS in terms of these remakes.
We haven't quite decided yet, whether we're going to do A Link to the Past, because there's also the possibility of doing a remake of Majora's Mask. This is something we've certainly been talking about and doing a little bit of experimenting with, to figure out which way we're going to go.
We have so many goals right now. We're always looking at expanding our audience and giving people the opportunity to get their hands on 3DS and see what kind of fun gaming experiences they can have. And now, we're also tasked with pushing the Wii U. So we have lots of good opportunities in terms of thinking about which Zelda game is going to be best for which purpose.
All suitably vague, but which title would you prefer to play again? Should one of them appear on Wii U, rather than just focusing on a 3D remake? Let us know in the comments below.
