The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening on Switch Launches This September

Nintendo showed more of its adorable remake, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening today in a release date reveal trailer during the E3 2019 direct. The game is set to launch on September 20, 2019 for the Nintendo Switch.

Gameplay, weapons, tools, enemies, and environments were all stars of the trailer, especially the debut of the new Chamber Dungeon that allows players to puzzle together their own dungeon pieces found throughout the island and conquer them to earn items for your quest.

Link’s Awakening is a remake of the 1993 Gameboy game. Similar to the original, the remake will have players follow Link, the green tunic wearing and sword-and-shield wielding hero we all know and love, who happens to be have washed ashore on a mysterious island called Koholint Island that’s full of strange characters. Staying on the island isn’t a good idea since well, it’s dangerous to go alone, so it’ll be up to the player to help Link escape the island, all the while collecting magical instruments and awakening the Wind Fish. Since this is a remake, the art style and graphics of the original have received a nice Master Sword-level upgrade.

Speaking of legendary things, Nintendo also announced a special edition for the remake, the Dreamer Edition, which will come with a new Link amiibo, and a concept art book.

Embark on a quick adventure into the remake by watching the latest trailer below:

Author’s take: There are so many games coming out around September that I was going to skip Link’s Awakening since I have no nostalgia for it, but then the Chamber Dungeon seems too good not to at least check out.
