game news Before Breath of The Wild 2, no Zelda in 2022? Twilight Princess HD developers weigh in on the issue
Breath of The Wild 2, in the absence of an official title, will not be released in 2022 as Nintendo claimed, leaving fans unsatisfied. While a persistent rumor would suggest that gamers would be entitled to a port of a previous work on Nintendo Switch, the studio behind Twilight Princess HD is quite ready to make one.
Twilight Princess and Wind Waker to the rescue
Fans have been eagerly awaiting Link’s return in 2022 with the release of breath of the wild 2 before Nintendo does not cool everyone by announcing its postponement for the year 2023. To wait, a rumor announced the possible arrival of Wind Waker Y twilight princess starting this year on Nintendo Switch.
The Jeff Grubb-backed rumor had recently gained momentum. If we were hoping to see these ports for the series’ 35th anniversary last year, fans finally had the right to Sword to the sky HD. Quite a disappointing launch given the expectations. So we’re expecting a compilation release of Wind Waker and Twilight Princess for this year, but once again, fans’ hopes are at risk of being hit. Regarding this potential build, the developers of Twilight Princess HD, the WiiU port of the game originally released for the Wii, spoke up during a recent interview.
Without Zelda in 2022?
It is the CEO of the Tantalus Media studio Tom Crago, at the origin of the HD port of Twilight Princess and who also worked on Skyward Sword HD, who wanted to clarify the situation. For their part, the Tantalus teams have not been contacted by Nintendo for the possible porting of a Zelda title.
We’d love to do that (port Twilight Princess to Switch), but it hasn’t been a priority for Nintendo, at least not in the conversations we’ve had (…). The way the relationship with our partners works is that we take every opportunity to work on their games. There is a constant dialogue between our two companies. Time often passes between titles and occasionally some ideas come up, but in the case of Skyward Sword, time passed and we got an email saying “would you be interested in working on Skyward Sword for Switch?” to which we obviously replied “yes, let’s do it”. We then talked to Nintendo about what the port should look like and got down to business. Ultimately, it was pretty similar to how Twilight Princess HD came to be.
Unless Tom Crago tries to trick us, there are no Twilight Princess or other Zelda ports planned for Tantalus. We can possibly hope that Nintendo has entrusted this task to another studio, but the relationship between the two companies and these recent revelations are enough to cool the ardor of the most impatient fans.
