It’s safe to say very few people expected a Link’s Awakening Remake announcement this year, let alone one that looks so amazing and different from the original. Seeing a great game remade so well got us thinking about what Nintendo games we’d like to see receive a similar treatment.
Here are 7 games that we think need the Link’s Awakening remake treatment on Switch.
Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door
When it comes to turn-based Mario RPG’s, one game always comes out on top. Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door is a GameCube classic, and is deemed one of the best Mario RPGs of all time, if not one of the best Mario games of all time.
The Thousand-Year Door has one of the more memorable casts from Mario games but the characters are not quite on par with the likes of Fawful from the Mario + Luigi series.
The Thousand Year Door is quirky in a way that’s comparable to Link’s Awakening, with a great sense of humor and satisfying gameplay that stands out from other RPGs of the time without straying too far from the common formula.
Getting your hands on the game today can prove to be a challenge, as the popular GameCube game can set you back a fair amount of cash. This is all the more reason for the game to re-release on Switch with new and improved visuals and maybe some bonus content of some kind, like the new dungeon creation system in Link’s Awakening Switch.
