Siliconera: "'When I suggested moving forward with Wind Waker HD, internally there was actually a lot of pushback,' Aonuma shares."
I'm guessing it's because Zelda Ocarina of Time 3D wasn't the initial smash hit Nintendo expected it to be. Nintendo is very fickle-minded when it comes to what sells and what doesn't. Why try another remake when the first one was not nearly as successful as was hyped up to be? Either way, I don't care. I'm still getting this game, and damn it all I STILL want a Majora's Mask remake on top of it.
The whole point of the WW remake was to give the Wii U owners a zelda game to keep them busy while they develop the next one. Nintendo has said that Zelda U is going to take a while to develop so while you wait you get a remake of WW.
I understand that, I'm just trying to rationalize why Nintendo would be met with "resistance" at Nintendo. And my guess is because OoT 3D was not as successful as they would have hoped. I understand why the game is being made and I personally am looking forward to it.
