Nintendo gave Zelda fans tons of new information on the upcoming Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening remake for the Nintendo Switch during its E3 Nintendo Direct presentation. Along with a new gameplay trailer, Nintendo announced that Link’s Awakening will be released on September 20th, 2019. Along with a completely revamped art style, the remake will also include a dungeon creator. You can collect dungeon chambers throughout your adventure to arrange into a brand new dungeon to explore! The Color Dungeon from Link’s Awakening DX is also available to play. Finally, Nintendo announced that a new amiibo based on the redesigned Link is also on the way.
Since Link’s Awakening is one of my all-time favorite handheld games, it’s safe to say that my hype level for this remake is through the roof! Check out the new gameplay trailer below, and let us know in the comments what you think about the new art style and dungeon creator.
