Biggest Surprises From the Nintendo Direct
The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening Remake
Used as the last and probably biggest announcement during the Nintendo Direct, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening will be getting a full-blown remake and it’s coming to the Switch…sorry 3DS fans.
Nintendo did a fantastic job keeping this reveal a secret from everyone, as fans were expecting some sort of 2D Zelda adventure to be announced eventually but not a remake of this 1993 classic in a chibi art-style.
Link’s Awakening is one of the most intriguing of the Zelda franchise, as it is super quirky and even has tons of elements and enemies from the Super Mario franchise such as Goombas, Chain Chomps, and even 2D side-scrolling segments.
We were not expecting to wake up the all-powerful Windfish again anytime soon, but Nintendo has shown us all something that we didn’t even know we wanted and you can color us excited.
The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening will be released on the Nintendo Switch sometime this year.
