With the release date of the Nintendo Switch remake of The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening remake still unknown, Zelda fans will have to look elsewhere for their action-adventure needs. Thankfully, a new Zelda-like game has just been released on the Switch. Developer Ostad Games has ported 2018’s Shalnor Legends: Sacred Lands to the Switch! Shalnor Legends is a top-down action-adventure game that bears a strong resemblance to 2D Zelda games, like A Link to the Past and Link’s Awakening. The official trailer (which you can watch below) shows a healthy dose of combat and puzzle-solving, along with some light RPG elements such as hit points and magic points. So give the trailer a watch and see if Shalnor Legends: Sacred Lands can help tide you over until Link’s Awakening arrives!
