Link’s Awakening Coming To Nintendo Switch

A remake of the classic 1993 2D Link’s Awakening is coming.

Nintendo announced lots of new games and updates yesterday in their Nintendo Direct. One of the biggest announcements was the remake of a classic Gameboy game, Link’s Awakening.

The original version was released on the Gameboy in 1993 with a Gameboy Colour edition in 1998. The graphic style of the game looks similar to that of A Link Between Worlds, the 3DS sequel to A Link To The Past. It’s a beautiful part 2D, part 3D and vibrant colours should breath new life into this classic game.

The announcement was the headline act of the direct and sent the YouTube comments into meltdown. Many Twitter users offering comparisons from the original 1993 to 2019 intro sequence.

We are huge Legend of Zelda fans here at This Week In Video Games can’t wait to get our hands on this one.
