Aonuma Hints At 30th Anniversary Celebrations For The Legend of Zelda Series

It’s quite hard to believe that almost 4 years ago, The Legend of Zelda symphony concert took place to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the hugely popular series. The Nintendo Scene team was out in force that day; you can take a trip down memory lane here.

In 2016 next year, The Legend of Zelda will be celebrating another milestone – its 30th anniversary. In a recent interview with Famitsu magazine, producer Eiji Aonuma was asked what was on the cards to mark this occasion for the franchise:

This year we wanted a Majora’s Mask concert, so it is not impossible that there may be a 30th anniversary concert next year. However, as we are trying to complete the new Zelda as fast as possible, that is all that is on our minds. That being said, we hope something will take form for the 30th anniversary. It is especially important to a producer of the series, so I hope to give something everyone can look forward to next year.

Naturally enough, Zelda U was briefly mentioned, with Aonuma giving very little details about the game’s development, only that it was progressing:

We’re doing our best. Everyday we improve it bit by bit. It is something that requires plenty of time, however, so please believe in us and wait.

Could something take shape for The Legend of Zelda next year? We’ll just have to wait and see, along with patiently twiddling our thumbs for Zelda U. It’ll be worth the wait.
