Trivia

In 2018, Nintendo released a change in their official Zelda Chronology, stating that Link's Awakening no longer takes place after The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages (2001) and The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons (2001), but before both games. Half a year later, this remake of Link's Awakening was announced. The change in the timeline now makes this remake a sequel to The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (1991). See more »

A charming game given new life

I don't think enough people play Link's Awakening back in the day. And it definitely doesn't have enough fans in this current generation. Is it because it's old? Maybe, but if you ask me, this remake is worth a try. It's difficult, much like the original, but if you figure things out for yourself, it's very rewarding. One of the best things about this game are the characters; they give this game its charm. Unfortunately, this remake is missing the photo booth. In the original, a mouse character could take various photos of you on your adventure. I'm guessing it's because you can take pictures with the Switch, so what's the point of having a photo booth? But this remake has better graphics and music to make me feel better. Most of the music is very calming, almost resembling a lullaby, which just makes it more likable. So I'd recommend this. If you play it, I hope you enjoy yourself
