Today is the long-awaited day! Link’s Awakening for the Switch is finally out! To commemorate this important day, Nintendo has shared some pretty cool official artwork for the game on Twitter, and I really enjoyed seeing it! The new artwork depicts a memorable scene from the game in which Marin is on a section of the broken bridge atop Tal Tal Heights, and it cannot hold her weight for very long. To save Marin, Link swiftly uses the Hookshot to…

Today is the day!  It seems like forever-ago that Nintendo announced the Link’s Awakening remake for the Nintendo Switch.  And now, at last, fan’s can finally get their hands on the long awaited game! I’ve spent months looking forward to playing Link’s Awakening on the Switch.  In fact, I haven’t even played the original version of the game, which makes this adventure even more mysterious and exciting for me.  I have been watching the trailers and listening to my fellow…

We left early in the morning for Mount Lanayru. Zelda had changed into a pure white dress, adorned with golden jewels. The attire made her look much older and I realized that soon, my little bird would no longer be a child. As we neared the trail up the mountain, I wrapped my cloak around the princess so she would not catch cold.  “Not much longer now,” I said, mounting my horse again and riding next to her. “I shall…

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is a game that keeps on giving. In the last Nintendo Direct, we found out the game will be including more DLC characters in the future. While the game’s roster is already impressive, containing every character who has ever previously been in Super Smash Bros. game, along with 15 new characters currently (16 once Terry Bogard is playable) there are still quite a few Nintendo characters who could make their way into the fray, and plenty…

I have been a long time fan of The Legend of Zelda series, and I’ve tried to play through as many of the games as I can get my hands on. When the remake of Link’s Awakening was announced, I was immediately excited because Link’s Awakening was a game that I missed growing up.  The game first released in 1993, and a DX version in 1998, but I had passed both in my childhood. (I was too busy playing Pokémon Yellow!) …

There’s a basic understanding that those who wield pieces of the Triforce receive certain boons from it. Ganondorf hits gym day and receives an ever increasing muscle mass. Princess Zelda has an affinity for negotiating with foreign powers. Link gets to hyuut and hyat his way across Hyrule proving that, yes, he is still capable of wielding the most dangerous arsenal of weaponry the world has ever seen. Generalities aside, the boons granted by the Triforce are limited in actual gameplay….

The release of Link’s Awakening for the Switch is now less than a week away, and Nintendo has been uploading new videos to advertise the sought-after game. Nintendo UK’s latest upload, an English-language version of the story trailer we saw from Nintendo Japan a few weeks back, features locations and footage already seen in previous trailers. But the most interesting part of this video clip is that it holds an exciting, musical surprise! For the first time ever (officially), viewers…

While the some aspects of the game are still shrouded behind the…

There are few moments as peaceful and beautiful as sitting to watch the sun rise in a video game. I remember reverently waiting for dawn to break over the tranquil waters of Lake Hylia in Ocarina of Time. I was so entranced, watching the night sky yield to the palest cornflower blue, that I entirely missed my shot at getting the fire arrows. There are plenty of times while playing when I have disengaged from the overarching story just to…
