Like many others, I was fortunate enough to experience The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening for the Nintendo Gameboy when it was released nearly 30 years ago.
Link’s Awakening takes place outside the kingdom of Hyrule, but that doesn’t stop it from containing an awesome story and memorable characters. Link is back, of course, but he’s joined by an assortment of new characters, like Tarin, Marin, The Wind Fish, and many more.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
We now have a new look at the memorable game with The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening for the Nintendo Switch. As you’d expect, Nintendo has created a gorgeous remake that promises to take older gamers like me to a pleasant stroll down memory lane.
Players who are new to Koholint Island should enjoy their first experience as much as we did back in the early 90s.
Check out the official game synopsis below:
“EXPLORE A REIMAGINED KOHOLINT ISLAND IN ONE OF THE MOST BELOVED GAMES IN THE LEGEND OF ZELDA SERIES.
Link has washed ashore on a mysterious island with strange and colorful inhabitants. To escape the island, Link must collect magical instruments across the land and awaken the Wind Fish.
Explore a reimagined Koholint Island that’s been faithfully rebuilt in a brand-new art style that will entice fans and newcomers alike. Battle enemies as you conquer numerous dungeons and uncover the hidden secrets of the island.
Encounter Super Mario enemies like Goombas, Piranha Plants, and more, and interact with unique locals who help Link on his adventure. As you clear dungeons throughout the main story, earn dungeon rooms (Chambers), then arrange them into custom layouts in the all-new Chamber Dungeon.
Place your dungeon entrance, Nightmare room, and everything in between as you try to fulfill objectives and play through a new dungeon. Tap compatible amiibo figures to earn more Chambers and find additional Chambers throughout the game in updated mini-games, such as the river rapids, trendy game, and fishing.”
