Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening Remake Launches in September

During their E3 Direct presentation, Nintendo gave a release date for the highly anticipated Link’s Awakening remake while revealing a new Dungeon building mode. 

If you’ve been looking forward to the remake of the beloved GameBoy Legend of Zelda game, Link’s Awakening, you only have a few months left to wait. While showing off a new trailer, Nintendo revealed the remake is coming to the Nintendo Switch on September 20th:

While it looks like a pretty direct recreation of the original game, Nintendo showed off a new addition that’s sure to have fans excited: Chamber Dungeons. In this mode, you’ll be able to build your own Legend of Zelda style dungeons!

Link has washed ashore on a mysterious island with strange and colorful inhabitants. To escape the island, Link must collect magical instruments and awaken the Wind Fish. Players explore a reimagined Koholint Island that’s been faithfully rebuilt in a new art style. Battle enemies, conquer numerous dungeons and uncover the hidden secrets of the island while encountering Super Mario enemies like Goombas, Chain Chomps and Piranha Plants. Players can also earn Chambers (Dungeon Rooms) and arrange them to complete objectives in the new Chamber Dungeon. Launching alongside the game will be a new Link amiibo figure that lets players put this adorable new art style in the palm of their hands. A special Dreamer Edition will come with the game and the Dreamer Art Book, which features concept art from the Nintendo Switch version of the game.
