The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening Remake Announced!

The Nintendo Switch is already home to one of the most critically acclaimed Zelda titles of all time, Breath of the Wild, which was released back in March 2017. I don’t think anyone expected for another Zelda game to be released so soon, let alone a remake of one of the most beloved titles in the series—The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening. But Triforce bless us all, here we are with an official announcement from Nintendo, complete with a trailer (Goombas are back!) that showcases a charming, cute, and frankly downright beautiful new graphics engine for the title.

The trailer retreads familiar areas and faces, and at times the nostalgia is almost too much to bear. Fans of the old Game Boy (and Game Boy DX) release will rejoice, and newcomers will be treated to one of the most unique Zelda crossover titles ever made, a title that explores the series roots and instills an ancient gaming joy that has been missing from the Zelda properties for quite some time. More news, comparison videos, and information to follow as we learn more about this upcoming Nintendo Switch release.
