Link's Awakening is selling better than I thought. With results like this, I hope they remake the first 3 NES/SNES Zeldas as well.
If they remade Zelda 1 would they take liberties towards making it less cryptic, or would it still require reading the manual and sharing secrets with friends (i.e., guides on the Internet in these days).
I think if they remade Zelda 1 they would probably want to make some changes to give it mainstream appeal in today's times. For example, making the mobs have an AI of their own instead of wandering around aimlessly, making additional tilesets for the dungeons to make them standout from each other, and providing an "easy" mode for people who don't care for a challenge.
Not saying that I personally wouldn't want a true remake of the game, but if Nintendo decided to do this, perhaps they could figure out a way to give players both versions of the game, since it wouldn't be as large of a project by today's standards.
Edit: Sorry for bumping an old thread; guess I didn't realize I was replying to an old message. :P
