Legend of Zelda Link’s Awakening Review – (Nintendo Switch)
Originally released for the Game Boy system more than 25 years ago, one of the most beloved games in the Legend of Zelda series returns.
The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening will be reborn as a new experience on Nintendo Switch.
The Link’s Awakening remake looks stunning, with vibrant, colorful visuals that retain the top-down perspective of the original. The last time Nintendo released a new game inspired by a classic Zelda adventure–looking at you, A Link Between Worlds, the end result was fantastic. So we have high hopes for Link’s Awakening, which will be the first top-down Zelda title on the Switch.
If you’ve never played Link’s Awakening, which initially released in 1993 for the Game Boy, you’re in for even more of a treat, as you’ll get to experience the story for the first time. As you might have gathered from the announcement trailer (which you can watch above), the story begins with Link sailing into a giant storm that leaves him shipwrecked on Koholint Island, which is guarded by a giant sleeping Wind Fish.
Throughout the course of the game, you’ll control Link as he solves puzzles and fights monsters to gather eight magical instruments that will wake the Wind Fish, the only one who can help him leave the island. Link’s Awakening shakes up the traditional Zelda formula a bit, as it doesn’t involve Princess Zelda, the Triforce, or Hyrule at all.
