Zelda Games That Need Remakes
The Legend of Zelda (1987)
Even though the recent release of Breath of the Wild proved to be a kind of re-imagining of the original Legend of Zelda, that title was instead a brand new experience in Hyrule with throwbacks to the original NES classic, and less of a remake.
Since that game’s release way back in 1987, The Legend of Zelda has not had a proper remake; even its several re-releases on 3DS, GameCube, Wii, and GBA barely had any changes made, besides some slight text-related fixes.
It might be strange to see such an old game remade in modern times without a total rehashing of the art style, but I think the game could definitely work in a 3D space with a new look for our first appearance of Link and Zelda.
The game could just start like Breath of the Wild and just throw you out in the wilderness with eight dungeons to complete with no particular order. No shrines, no NPCs (besides the shop), and a sprawling world to explore.
Seeing where the Legend of Zelda started, but in Breath of the Wild’s engine would be spectacular. We’ve got so many remasters of classic Zelda games, but what about the one that started it all?
