Nintendo announced that The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening will be getting a remake for the Nintendo Switch. The predecessor of the game was in 1993 for the Gameboy. The Legend of Zelda franchise has had fans since the very beginning in the 1980s. This announcement amplifies Nintendo this week. The company has had several big projects come to light in the last two months, and it looks like they are not stopping. Transforming gaming experiences is what Nintendo does, from graphics to dialogue. We can be sure to find a memorable experience. Check it out in the trailer below:
Unfortunately, Nintendo hasn’t shared many details about the Link’s Awakening remake, but it retains the top-down perspective of the original, making it the first new 2D-style Zelda game for Switch. It also features visuals somewhat reminiscent of A Link Between Worlds, the 3DS follow-up to A Link to the Past.
Link’s Awakening, which came out in 1993, tells the story of Link getting stranded on Koholint Island, a bizarre place full of weird characters, strange monsters, and Goombas for some reason. It’s unusual that we change the scenery from Hyrule. Shipwrecked, Link washes the island ashore and can only escape by retrieving eight magical instruments and waking the isle’s guardian, the Wind Fish. It’s arguably one of the best Zelda games in history.
An exact release date is currently unknown but we can expect to see The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening hit the shelves sometime later this year. You can find any new updates here at The Nerd Stash.
I look forward to playing The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening remake, and I hope to see several fans play also.
