Link's Awakening (2019)







The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening (2019) is a remake of the 1993 game of the same name. Announced during a Nintendo Direct presentation on February 13th, 2019[1], the game received a short teaser trailer, and a release window of 2019 was revealed. The game has received a massive overhaul in the graphics department, although the overworld is largely unchanged gameplay-wise.


The game's art-style has radically changed, creating a much more modern look, with high-resolution models and shaders present. There is a blur effect on the edges of the screen, though only when Link is in the overworld. The character models appear to have a chibi look, almost reminiscent of toys.


  • Link is now able to attack diagonally, as opposed to the original, where he could only swing his sword in four set directions.
  • Link is no longer limited to just two items equipped, as he can have his Sword, Shield, and Roc's Feather equipped at the same time.
  • Link is now wielding the Hylian Shield.
  • While almost everything in the world shown thus far is identical, a ledge can now be seen on top of Kanalet Castle, allowing Link to jump off. This is presumably a quality of life improvement, allowing quick access for Link to leave the castle, as opposed to having to backtrack through the dungeon, as was required beforehand.

All the enemies that have appeared thus far are found in the exact same locations where they appeared in the original, with significant overhauls to their game models.
