Nah, it would make more sense to release the NES Zelda games on the eShop instead. That's obviously what everyone wants.

I for one would like to see the HD Legend of Zelda remakes from the Wii U era ported to Switch. Preferably as a double pack with both Windwaker and Twilight Princess together.

For classic games I've been saying for a while now, that if they don't want to have virtual console anymore and aren't willing to do anything more than NES for NSO (for some God forsaken reason) then they should release "console collections" on cartridges for NES, SNES, Game Boy/Color, GBA and N64. Even Gamecube. I'm thinking collections like we had on the NES mini or SNES mini.

It would be cool but I really doubt it. What I think will happen is:

  • NES (LoZ, Zelda II): We know this, NSO exclusive (released during NSO year 1)
  • SNES (ALttP): NSO exclusive (released during NSO year 2)
  • GB (Link's Awakening, Oracle of Ages/Seasons): Remakes (Link's Awakening remake already confirmed)
  • GBA (ALttP/Four Swords, Minish Cap): NSO exclusive (released during NSO year 3)
  • N64 (OoT, MM): NSO exclusive (released during NSO year 4)
  • GC (WW, TP): HD remasters on Wii U ported to Switch
  • GC part 2 (Four Swords Adventures): Doesn't come to Switch
  • DS (Phantom Hourglass, Spirit Tracks): Doesn't come to Switch
  • Wii (Skyward Sword): Doesn't come to Switch (with Switch Lite coming in September, I doubt we'll see anymore 1st party games be docked exclusives)
  • 3DS (ALBW, Triforce Heroes): Doesn't come to Switch

Bold of you to assume a SS remake would need to be confined to the dock, or that Nintendo will stop making games with modes that require separate joycons.

It depends on who you ask @Reckless_Linklin. If you ask consumers then yes because who doesn't want that. If you ask Nintendo and their stockholder no because we've made millions slowly re releasing old games over and over again for decades now. And why change things if it ain't broke?

@BacklogBlues This is just an opinion. But i have no problem with them being released individually. However, as we all know Nintendo will only develop games for the switch for so long. While currently it looks like it will have a long life as current Nintendo console eventually it will be replaced. This creates the same issue that is already an issue. There are too many Legend of Zelda titles on too many playing mediums. (Pokemon fans understand this too well, not even possible to complete a full pokedex unless you have a time machine) By the time you release all of them individually the switch will be history. What Nintendo customers need are all/majority of games on a updated console. (I say updated console because the gamecube was darn close with i think around 11-13 titles playable on it? That number may not be right) @grumblevolcano has a fairly realistic release schedule if it were to happen but i would like to see some form of physical copies, not just online versons for when the eventual end if the switch era comes.

Many people seem to clammor for a 35 anniversary collection, but you know how it goes: Just some (emulated) ports, no extra's, full price, temporarily available, scalpers paradise. Basically Mario 3d allstars all over again. And seeing as Nintendo loves re-releasing Wii u titles so much: Maybe they just slap Windwaker hd and Twilight princess hd on one cart and call it a day...

Personally I want something with more effort, like a totally new 2D Zelda. Or a very good Zelda 2 remake.

They just need to get more zeldas than the first 4 on the switch period! Any possible collection would be likely missing alot of games that would dissapoint alot of fans who've been following this series since the beginning. For example if it did not Include skyward sword i simply would not feel it best represents the last 35 years of zelda. I'd even be quite dissapointed if any of the handheld games were missing but obviously they can't include all of them or it would cost too much.

If they just put out OOT, MM, WW and TP on a single cart that that would feel like a waste.

I'm just gonna use this as an excuse to moan about Tri-Force Heroes again and say no one will miss it.

I'd like to see the the Satellaview Zelda get some kind of release. They were ahead of their time so they would benefit from todays tech advancements and besides the CD-I games it's the only Zelda games I've yet to play.

They need to get every Zelda game out and it has to be free and HD and 60 fps and everything or I’ll just wait for the 40th aniversary which will include the cdi games and links cross bow training.

@jump

I meant main series. As i understand it triforce heroes is more of a spinoff. I don't know though i haven't played it. You're right nobody would likely miss it. The satellaview games could be interesting. As for the Cdi games hell no! I don't want anything on this collection that Nintendo themselves did not develop.

PLEASE GIVE ME SKYWARD SWORD I also really want OOT, TP, WW, and MM and I think it'd be quite cool if they gave the original game the links awakening remake treatment and if they remastered phantom hourglass and spirit tracks (I never got a chance to play those two)

Games I'm playing right now:
Zelda BotW - Switch
ACNH - Switch
Smash Bros. Ultimate - Switch
Hyrule Warriors AoC - Switch

I mostly just want Skyward Sword HD. I think people who didn't have a Wii U would appreciate Wind Waker too. Maybe even Twilight Princess....although I thought that was quite a weak "remaster"

It's dangerous to go alone! Stay at home.

I could see Nintendo releasing the old Master Collection, because that's what they tend to do instead of making fresh new collections. If we're REALLY lucky we'll see WWHD and TPHD bundled. However, I imagine Nintendo will probably sell them separately for $60 because Nintendo overcharges for everything.

I am one of the biggest Zelda fans you'll ever find and it makes me really sad because I haven't played the Oracle games, the satelleaview games, the CDI games, Crossbow training, Phantom Hourglass, Spirit Tracks, Tri-Force heroes, Four Swords, Hyrule Warriors. And I haven't beaten MM, OOT, LttP, MC, WW, or Zelda 2

@Dezzy Actually they did more work on Twillight Princess than they did on Wind Waker, it just doesn''t show as Twilight Princess was such an ugly looking game.
