The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening remake announced for Switch

Link's Awakening Switch

In an announcement that stunned virtually everyone, during tonight’s Nintendo Direct presentation a remake was announced for The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening. The game originally launched in 1993 for the Gameboy, meaning that this remake comes over a quarter of a century after the original game’s launch. The game’s visuals have been upgraded for the modern age, but still very clearly looks like the original Gameboy title.

This Zelda game has seen ports to both the Gameboy Color and the 3DS, but this is the first time it has seen a full remake in the modern age.

The game will launch later this year, but no specific release date or price was provided. We will keep you updated as new details are made available.
