I am probably one of the few people that actually like zelda 2. That being said, I am on the fence about a new side scroller. While I like zelda 2, I'll admit that it had flaws. I'm worried that if a side scroller was created, it would go the route of a metroidvania. While I enjoy those games, it's not what I'm looking for when I play zelda.

However I would love a zelda 2 remake using the botw formula. Botw felt more like a call back to zelda 2 than zelda 1 to me and I think it would fit perfectly. Just a thought.

Just needs the whores, right?

Oh? Curious, why do you feel BOTW was more of a Zelda 2 homage? I do get that it's not as much like Zelda 1 as people say, BOTW is actually more open I think than even Zelda 1, but I'm curious what paralels you see between zelda 2 and it.

Zelda II is a fine idea but it was just too hard. Remake that with reasonable difficulty and add on to it and it'll be awesome. Zeldavania.


Main thing difficulty wise IMO is to let you restart at a game over at the last town you got...'refreshed' at, or at the start of a dungeon. Not that this was the only source of difficulty, but didn't you ALWAYS restart at the very start screen of the game at least until the final palace?

Yeah I was just gonna say checkpoints is the biggest thing. It's obnoxious you have to go through Death Mountain again after you die but it's an old game..... It has so much potential though. It just gets overlooked. Zeldavania could be amazing.
OOTs Forest Temple is the best Zelda dungeon.
Zarama The Dragon God is the one above all.

Give it some awesome 32 bit art. They need to stop with these trash art styles like ALBW and TFH.

I'm curious too. Zelda 2 wasn't quite as openworld as Zelda 1.

Yes. But I’d like an updated version of Zelda II. I think it’s actually a solid game, it’s just brutal by today’s standards. It deserves another shot.

Bull. There have been far more brutal games during and since. A few areas does not constitute brutal.

Lol what Zelda game even comes close in difficulty? Certainly nothing post-OoT. So that leaves...AlttP and LA, both of which are cake by comparison

I'm talking about games period. All of Zelda is very accessible. Saying that its brutal in the grand hierarchy of truly brutal games past and present is like saying that the hardest Mario deserves to be up there with some of the titles only the most patient and hardcore gamers can beat.

Its the hardest Zelda game for sure, but its not anywhere near as difficult as its made out to be. Its challenging with a few difficulty spikes. That's all I'm saying.

And for the record I'm no whiz or master. The lava fields, Three Eye Rock Palace and Great Palace still kicks my ass pretty good.

Ahhh ok I misunderstood. Yes of course there are harder games out there. And yeah I got destroyed by Death Mountain my first time through, as well as the Valley of Death and the Great Palace.

I just think the game gets way more hate than it deserves. I think a modernized version would allow more people to see that it’s actually a damn good game.
