In the most recent issue of Nintendo Force, the team sat down with Studio MDHR, the developers behind Cuphead. The once Microsoft exclusive indie darling recently hit the Nintendo Switch and was instantly accepted with open arms by the Nintendo Switch user base.
In the interview, they discussed how the game’s popularity has sky-rocketed since its release and the team have no hints of slowing down. In spirit of not slowing down, the team also stated that they one day dream of making a Legend of Zelda game, with Jared Moldenhauer stating he’d love to create:
…a sprawling Zelda title brought to life in a doting 2D hand-animated style…Think of all the expressiveness and life you could bring to the tribes, people, and enemies of a universe that rich! And much like Cuphead, we would get to test our design mettle coming up with screen-filling bosses of an entirely different nature. Of course, backgrounds would be completely hand-painted with nothing re-used! The list just goes on and on. It would be an absolute dream come true.
With the most recent release of Cadence of Hyrule, and Nintendo’s recent embracement of Indie developers, this crazy mashup no longer seems entirely out of the realm of possibility.
