Nintendo has a big year in 2019, as the console and game maker released strong first-party exclusives like Pokemon Sword and Shield, Super Mario Maker 2, and Luigi’s Mansion 3. They also released a remake to the classic Game Boy game The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, which is having a nice little price drop for Cyber Monday 2019.
What’s fascinating about Link’s Awakening on Switch is that it’s a full remake of the original, accurately recreating locations, dungeons, and boss battles with a new visual style. This game not only offers a nostalgic revisit for long-time fans, but it’s also a stellar way for recent newcomers to experience one of the series’ finest entries. The Zelda remake earned an impressive 8/10 in GameSpot’s Link’s Awakening review.
“If you haven’t touched a classic Zelda game in a while, Link’s Awakening will almost instantly transport you back to the ’90s,” wrote Peter Brown. “It’s simple, in many ways, but the orchestrated journey still conveys a sense of adventure, and this new version is without question the best way to experience it. And more than anything else, it will put a smile on your face. Remakes are a dime a dozen nowadays and often easy to overlook. Don’t make that mistake with Link’s Awakening.”
