The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening Coming to Nintendo Switch in 2019

A new take on a classic The Legend of Zelda game was announced to be the next Zelda game coming to Nintendo Switch, later this year, during today’s Nintendo Direct.  It’s The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, one of the most iconic titles in the illustrious series.  This isn’t just a port, though, it’s a full-blown recreation, as they’ve adopted 3D, toy-like art style that’s just too adorable to pass up!  Plus, they’ve added some of Mario’s famous foes.
