Zelda Twilight Princess HD on Switch? The team would like it but for Nintendo, “it’s not a priority”

The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess HD development team – Tantalus – said that a Switch version is “not a priority for Nintendo,” at least based on conversations between the two companies. At the same time, Tantalus would adore the idea of working on the game.

Precisely, speaking with Nintendo Everything, Tantalus said, “No, of course we would love to work on it [ed., on The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess HD], but it’s not a priority for Nintendo, or at least not in the conversations they’ve had with us.”

“The way it works with Nintendo is that we would jump at any opportunity to work on one of their games. There is a constant dialogue between our companies. Often some time passes between one title and the next, and there might be other ideas that come up, but in the case of Skyward Sword after a while an email came in that read ‘would you be interested in bringing Skyward Sword to Switch?’ to which our response was ‘Yes, we are.’ And then we initiated a conversation with Nintendo about the type of project and eventually started working. So it was a similar process to the one that brought out Twilight Princess (on Wii U).”

As you have read, Tantalus is the team that handled the porting of Skyward Sword HD to Switch. In addition, it is the team that worked on the Wii U version of Twilight Princess. That is, it would be the best studio to make the Switch version of the latter game. For now, however, there does not appear to be anything in development. Of course, it is possible that the team is simply lying as they are not allowed to talk about the project before Nintendo’s announcement.

For now, this is what we know. For certain, the hope of gamers is that 2022 will hold some The Legend of Zelda-themed surprises, since the sequel to Breath of the Wild has been postponed until next year.
