Zelda 2 into CDi Zeldas?
« on: December 28, 2015, 09:18:12 pm »
Has anyone ever thought of, or attempted this? Hack NES Zelda II into each CD-i Zelda, Faces of Evil and Wand of Gamelon? That might actually make good games out of them. Both games are side scrollers, like Zelda 2.

The third CDi Zelda, Zelda's Adventure, is top down, so the original NES or SNES Zelda would be used for that one.

That's not a bad idea. I've always had in the back of my mind that it could be cool to remake all three of the "garbage" Zelda games. I just always thought to make them all tradition overhead view zeldas since I was never a fan of Zelda II.

I always thought about doing something like this but I wasn't sure if these games broke canon or not with their content.

There are 2 of the maps drawn on GameFAQS - http://www.gamefaqs.com/cdi/564210-zelda-the-wand-of-gamelon/faqs

Maybe whoever works on this may want to contact the author of those maps and see if he can draw up the rest.

Probably, but oh well.

I don't think they break canon. However, it is fairly obvious that they are styled after the US cartoon to some extent.
If they were remade in any capacity they would benefit greatly from adopting the basic features of the rest of the series such as a silent protagonist and a more serious tone.
