Why The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker Wasn’t Remade for 3DS

The only Legend of Zelda game that has been released for the newest Nintendo system, the WiiU, is The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD. It was one of the first games to really give the WiiU some much needed publicity. But the question remains: why hasn’t Nintendo made The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker remade for the Nintendo 3DS?

Because the developers were using Wind Waker HD as a test bed for ideas that would later be incorporated into Zelda U. That's what they stated when the game was released.

Or maybe because 3DS isnt even as strong as Gamecube is the reason why it wasnt made for the 3DS? Previous Zelda games made sense because they were brought from the N64 which is HW wise less stronger than 3DS.

Machines dont work like that, at least not the ones that have been designed properly. When you put more demanding games on the hardware, it means the game is going to run at a very poor performance. Its not going to melt or overheat (unless theres something wrong with it) just because the game is super hardware intensive.

I don't know, they got Xenoblade to work, so I don't see why they couldn't had made it work with Wind Waker.

I agree with the author... the low-res 3DS screen could detract from the art style of this game particularly compared to the Gamecube version.

Yup, I know they were DS vs 3DS but look at Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks...totally didn't to the art style justice, especially Phantom Hourglass.

I love my 3DS but Nintendo definitely needs to step up the screen resolution in its next handheld to at least match the now ages old iPhone 4.

I don't even know why some of you are discussing this.

Has any Zelda game really been remade, though?

Also: doesn't the 3DS have enough Zelda ports?
