With the recent announcement that Link’s Awakening is coming to the Nintendo Switch this year, we will look at the anticipated graphics for the upcoming release. YouTuber GameXplain has created a side-by-side comparison of the original to the Switch version to see how the new one has captured the elegance of the Game Boy game. Both versions are beautiful, and I love the Link Between Worlds art style. I think the Switch graphics have the same allure as the original and there is a sense of nostalgia as the game progresses. Hearing the original music as the new gameplay is featured is a nice touch and it feels like we are taken back to the 90s again. I’m looking forward to playing this (again!) upon its release.
Give GameXplain’s comparison video a watch below, and let us know how you think the remake’s graphics compare to the original!
