The Legend Of Zelda: Link’s Awakening may have multiplayer

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening multiplayer Link's Awakening

Long-time (read: old) Nintendo fans collectively lost their marbles when Nintendo announced a remake of Game Boy’s The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening for Nintendo Switch, but the intrigue doesn’t stop there. A quick glance at Nintendo’s official page for the game reveals that its number of players is still “to be determined.” In other words, multiplayer Link’s Awakening might be a thing.

Granted, I very much doubt that the main story will include co-op this time around, but it’s entirely possible that an added mode of gameplay in the style of Four Swords will return. Four Swords began life as a multiplayer mode tacked on to the Game Boy Advance port of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, after all. It stands to reason that Link’s Awakening would include something in the same vein.

If given the choice though, would you want to play the core game co-op with other players? Let us know down below! (And no, the above image is not real. It’s a simple, silly Photoshop that I made in 30 seconds.)
