A recent job listing may suggest so.
Grezzo, the developers behind The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask 3DS remakes, are seemingly recruiting for a new “legend” title. Specifically, they are looking for Unreal Engine 4 programmers.
Grezzo’s job description, when translated into English, asks potential developers “would you like to make a legend together 2?” The “2” may not make sense at first, but scouring Grezzo’s history shows that they have used the question “would you like to make a legend together?” before, when hiring for Majora’s Mask 3D. Considering that this title will be running on Unreal Engine 4, signs are pointing to a new Legend Of Zelda remake for Nintendo Switch.
It wouldn’t be surprising to see Grezzo working on another Zelda game, considering that half of Grezzo’s works have been Zelda titles. Including the two aforementioned games, Grezzo also ported The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords to DSiWare, and developed their own original Zelda game in the form of Tri Force Heroes. Tri Force Heroes wasn’t built from the ground-up, as it borrowed the engine previously used for A Link Between Worlds. This is all just conjecture, but when you look at the evidence, it does seem likely that we may be seeing a Legend of Zelda remake for the Switch.
If this does end up being true, which of the games could they be remaking? We’ve already seen a number of remakes on 3DS and Wii U. The only 3D game that hasn’t been remade is The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. With its heavy emphasis on motion controls, it may not be the best game to play on the go. The 1:1 swordplay could lead to some nasty accidents on a plane journey. We’ve already seen parts of Ocarina of Time be remade on Unreal Engine by fans. Maybe this inspired Grezzo to set off and make their own one? Or maybe we could be seeing a 3D Link to the Past remake? It’s all very exciting to think about.
