Link is being discussed in two entirely separate games.
Let’s start with the Nintendo Switch remake of The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, which was an outstanding title on the Game Boy more than two decades ago. „Explore a reimagined Koholint Island in one of the most beloved games in the Legend of Zelda series. Link has washed ashore on a mysterious island with strange and colourful inhabitants. To escape the island, Link must collect magical instruments across the land and awaken the Wind Fish. Explore a reimagined Koholint Island that’s been faithfully rebuilt in a brand-new art style that will entice fans and newcomers alike. Battle enemies as you conquer numerous dungeons and uncover the hidden secrets of the island. Encounter Super Mario enemies like Goombas, Piranha Plants, and more, and interact with unique locals who help Link on his adventure,” Nintendo’s website says.
We also learned how the Chamber Dungeons work in the remake. As you complete the main story’s dungeons, you unlock dungeon rooms, which are called Chambers. You solve puzzles by placing these chambers into layouts, and then, you get to clear this dungeon as well. Link’s Awakening will also have Amiibo support, which will unlock you more Chambers (for a maximum of five dungeons). A new Link Amiibo will unlock Shadow Link, who could be in any dungeon room. If you defeat him, you’ll get a ton of rupees (the currency in the game).
After the new images, the Nintendo E3 Direct trailer and the Nintendo Treehouse E3 gameplay, we’ll continue, but for now, we say that The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening will launch on September 20 (a Friday, usually from Nintendo), exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
And the new information, which we somewhat expected: during the E3 Direct, Nintendo announced a sequel to 2017’s Wii U/Switch The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (which was a launch title on the latter platform). It has no title and release date known yet, but going by the first video, it looks like we’ll be getting a darker story this time, which could be as grim as Majora’s Mask was. As the big N is usually developing for the Switch only, we can expect this game to show up on the portable platform as well.
So Nintendo continues to push Link, which is understandable.
