The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening Announced For Nintendo Switch

The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening Announced For Nintendo Switch

Today’s Nintendo Direct was packed full of content both expected and surprising, and the final announcement to cap off the live stream was one of the biggest surprises of all. Coming to the Nintendo Switch in 2019 is a full-on remake of the Game Boy’s The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening!

It’s been almost 25 years since the original game hit the Game Boy system, and this new version is a re-imagining with new 3D visuals. Check out the trailer below:

Kieron started gaming on the SEGA Master System, with Sonic the Hedgehog, Alex Kidd and Wonder Boy. The 20-odd years of his life since have not seen his love for platformers falter even slightly. A separate love affair, this time with JRPGs, developed soon after being introduced to Final Fantasy VIII (ie, the best in the series). Further romantic subplots soon blossomed with quirky Japanese games, the occasional flashy AAA action adventure, and an unhealthy number of indie gems. To say that Kieron lies at the center of a tangled, labyrinthine web of sexy video game love would be an understatement.
