Should Retro Studios Make a Zelda Game?

Retro Studios, best known for their work on the Metroid Prime trilogy, started out as a small, second-party game development company out of Austin, Texas. Due to their success in creating Metroid Prime and Metroid Prime 2: Echoes for the GameCube, Nintendo brought them on as a valuable, first-party developer. Their name eventually became synonymous with their title, Metroid and they continued to make games for the series all the way through Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. Aside from that, they have made a name for themselves by helping to develop other popular titles such as Donkey Kong: Country Returns for the Wii and the recently released Mario Kart 7 for the 3DS.

With so much success, Retro Studios has proven time and time again that they are capable of making great games, so the question that arises is why has Nintendo not given them the opportunity to create a Zelda game?

If they did a top down Zelda adventure in the style of LttP that would be amazing :)

Everything Retro does is Gold. They are the modern day Rare.

Though Monolithsoft could also attribute to the franchise.

I trust Retro Studios with ANY Nintendo franchise. They simply just can't make a bad game. They're like Nintendo's Naughty Dog.

They'd put a cool twist on Zelda.

"They're like Nintendo's Naughty Dog"

How dare you compare Retro Studios to "indecent canine" developer?

Retro is better.

Naughty Dog's a great developer dude. Besides, I wasn't even comparing their skill level at all. I was just saying that Retro Studios is as important to Nintendo as Naughty Dog is to Sony.
