The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening for Switch Gets New Trailer and Release Date

Prepare to have your cuteness sensors overloaded, because Nintendo has released a new trailer for The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, which has been rebooted for the Nintendo Switch.

The game looks absolutely adorable and very top-down Zelda-y, which is all I really need to get excited for it. I’ve always preferred the top-down Zelda games, with A Link to the Past being my possible all-time favorite, so I appreciate the approach this reboot is taking.

The game also got a release date, but it isn’t anytime soon. The game will release on September 20, 2020. Check out the trailer above.

About The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening

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. The game and amiibo are each scheduled to launch Sept. 20.
