Bertil Hörberg, developer of Gunman Clive, is hard at work on his next game, which he tells us is heavily inspired by older games in the Legend of Zelda series, and is in development for the Nintendo 3DS. In an interview with Siliconera, Bertil shared:


It’s still very early in development and a lot of the design isn’t finalized, but it’s very heavily inspired by the early Zelda games; it uses a topdown perspective with 3D graphics and it’s for the 3DS. The artstyle is fairly different from the new Zelda but has some influences from [A Link to the Past] as well, so yes I think comparisons will certainly be made [to A Link to the Past 2].


I think most players realize that my resources are rather more limited though and I wouldn’t presume to be in direct competition with Nintendo. I just hope people will be up for a bit more old-school action adventure gameplay regardless.


We’ll have our full interview with Bertil up later this week, where we discuss the success of Gunman Clive on Android and Nintendo eShop, PlayStation Vita development, and Gunman Clive’s release in Japan, which is being handled by Circle Entertainment.
