The upcoming release is a remake of 1993’s top-down action-adventure Game Boy title – in which Link must collect magical instruments and awaken the Wind Fish to escape a mysterious island – reimagined with a charming new art style.
The first The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening review was recently published in Japanese magazine Famitsu, which awarded the game a 35/40 score.
The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening release date is September 20, 2019. It’s currently available to pre-order via Amazon, Game and Best Buy, among other retailers.
“The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening for Nintendo Switch is possibly Nintendo’s cutest adventure – and it threatens to use its charm offensive to push players towards Switch Lite, the redesigned console which releases on the same day,” VGC wrote in a recent The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening preview.
We were able to play a new build of the game and adventure through a previously unseen area, its third dungeon. Check out ten minutes of our gameplay session on VGC’s recently launched YouTube channel.
