Hmm, the artstyle makes me feel this may have been outsourced. I mean its pleasing but also super a plastic looking, probably wouldn't have hit so hard if they didn't have the gorgeous and classic animated cutscene before hand. Non the less, looking forward to it!

Yeah the art style is strange but looks kind of like claymation. It’s just link that looks so weird. I hope it’s amazing though, links awakening DX is one of my favourites of the Zelda franchise.



Links Awakening is perhaps the best handheld Zelda game ever. But I'm not sold on the new art style. Just ehhh



It makes me really happy that they chose to remake this one since it's my favorite Zelda game right below Majora's Mask.
I haven't played it since way back when on the original Gameboy, so this will be quite nostalgic. Marin's song at the end already takes me back...

I also love seeing this artwork.



I hope they use it for the cover of the game.

Was there a rumor going around about this?
Because just a couple of days ago someone in my feed said they hope there's a Link's Awakening remake. And I thought "Yeah, me too."

Oh I must have missed that one then. Didn't know it dated back that far, but I guess there hasn't been a Direct since then, so it makes sense that it popped up again a few days ago.



I love the old NES/SNES era 2D Zelda games, and this is the only one I haven't played. Now I can just play it on Switch. Looks great!



One of the few remakes that would've made sense on the 3DS, and of course it's for Switch. I'm not saying it shouldn't be on Switch. But Luigi's Mansion and Kirby's Epic Yarn don't belong on 3DS.

And this game kind of already got a remake with DX. But maybe that's more just an update or expansion.



Lifetime Sales Predictions 

PS4: 122 mil (was 100 million) Xbox One: 55 mil (was 50 mil) Switch: 79 million

3DS: 77 mil (was 73 million)

Link's Awakening is one of my favorite Zelda games, and I love the art style, so I'm excited for this...
Also, the number of people Insee on social media complaining about chain chomps and goombas in a Zelda game makes me...
Sad...



Have a nice day...
