The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening is heading to Nintendo Switch September 20th, 2019. The game was originally released on Game Boy in 1993 and has received overwhelmingly positive reviews. Now we get to experience the remake on the Switch with enhanced and graphically-adorable visuals!
Take a look at the adorable trailer below as it starts off with the story we all know and love: “Washed ashore a strange land, a castaway will seek the truth. Only first….he must awaken.”
On top of battling enemies in dungeons, we see Link gathering and eating apples, fishing, and up to his usual pot-smashing-shenanigans. We also get to see him purchase arrows in the most adorable shop we have ever seen and now we must buy all the things!
In case you haven’t played the original version, you can look forward to finding characters from the Mario series and other unusual Zelda-like things such as some dungeons that will have 2D-scrolling. You’ll see Chain Chomps, or rather a Chain Chomp family including a little baby one, and below there’s a Yoshi doll from Nintendo Treehouse live.
A newly added feature is being able to create your own dungeon by first entering Dampé’s Shack. Place chambers earned on your adventure to arrange and design your own dungeon and explore them to your heart’s content! You have to make sure that all of your doorways connect together. If you conquer these chambers then you can receive many rewards such as Fairy Bottles. Speaking of dungeons, the creators were proud to confirm the return of the Color Dungeon. This was first introduced in the Game Boy Color version with many puzzles to solve.
