Tantalus, the creators of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD, would "love" to ship the game to Nintendo, but they haven''t been asked by Nintendo yet.
With the sequel to Breath of the Wild going into 2023, and Nintendo''s slate is a bit quiet for the rest of the year, Zelda fans think it''s pretty probable that we''ll finally see Switch ports for older Zelda games like Twilight Princess HD and The Wind Waker HD, as they''re quite missing on the Switch and certainly wouldn''t take too long to get on the console.
Joe Crago, the CEO of Tantalus, the developers of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD, and the more recent Skyward Sword remake, appeared on the Fragments of Silicon podcast. Crago was asked if Nintendo had approached Tantalus about transposing Twilight Princess HD to the Switch.
"No, and look, we''d absolutely love to do that (Twilight Princess HD), but that hasn''t been a priority for Nintendo or at least not in conversations with us. We are well jump at any opportunity we can have to share about one of their titles. There''s a constant dialogue between us and the company."
According to Crago, "Sometimes there is a lot of time between titles that may pass around, and there may be other ideas that are kicked around," but in the case of Skyward Sword, some time passed and then the email comes: "We would be interested in bringing Skyward Sword on to Switch," and then we enter into the discussions with Nintendo, and eventually we get underway. So, it was similar in a variety of ways in terms of how Twilight Princess (on Wii U) came to
Although it''s possible that Nintendo has decided to go in-house with adding Twilight Princess HD to the Switch or has requested entirely to do it, it''s more likely that the ports are just in the works right now, as the studio has historically had a good relationship with Tantalus.
