[Nintendo Direct] The Legend Of Zelda: Link’s Awakening Is Getting A Remake! [VIDEO]

The Zelda game made for the Game Boy is getting revived.

One of the pleasant surprises of the Nintendo Direct was that Nintendo announced a The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening remake for the Nintendo Switch. The game originally came out on the Game Boy in 1993, followed by a Game Boy Color (DX) version in 19998. Well, now we can prepare for a 3D iteration with very pleasant visuals. Indeed, if you look at the photos, you wouldn’t think this was originally an 8-bit title in the past!

Nintendo should go a step further and bring back Mother (Famicom / 1989; its only Western release happened in 2015 on the Wii U Virtual Console as Earthbound Beginnings) and Earthbound (SNES / 1994-95; Mother 2 in Japan), or maybe pull all strings and remake Mother 3 as well, which only got a Japanese release on the GBA in 2006 – it was highly demanded by the fans to be localised but it never happened. (And originally, that was developed as Earthbound 64 on the N64!)

The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening will launch as a Nintendo Switch-exclusive later this year. (And yes, the eighth image does show Goombas from the Mario universe!)
