2021 marks the 35th anniversary of The Legend Of Zelda. The iconic adventure series actually celebrated its Birthday all the way back in February, but Nintendo has remained surprisingly silent in regards to the milestone so far, much to the disappointment of fans everywhere.
The good news is that while Nintendo hasn't really announced anything in the way of anniversary celebrations yet, there are plenty of rumblings to suggest that it's all still to come. Previous reports seemed confident that both The Wind Waker and Twilight Princess would be coming to Nintendo Switch later this year, following the HD remaster of Skyward Sword. Now, an insider believes that Nintendo is looking even further back, and inviting some honoured guests to the 35th celebrations.
During the most recent episode of his podcast, industry insider NateDrake (via WCCFTech) said that he believes The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time and Majora's Mask will arrive on Switch alongside The Wind Waker and Twilight Princess before the end of the year.
It's unclear how Nintendo would handle these ports. Last we heard, the company was planning to release The Wind Waker and Twilight Princess as some kind of double pack. It's not out of the question for it to do the same with the two N64 titles, although NateDrake did suggest it's more likely that these ports will be released separately on the Nintendo eShop.
It's no secret that seeing Ocarina Of Time and Majora's Mask on the eShop would make an awful lot of Zelda fans very happy. It'd also be an incredibly easy route to a lot of money for Nintendo in exchange for very little effort. Obviously most fans are still kind of hoping for a ground-up remake of Ocarina Of Time, but a Switch port would do nicely for the time being.
