Nintendo devoted its pre-show presentation to a slate of indie games on Switch, but promised the week would be littered with new footage of its first-party 2019 lineup as well. The company has now delivered for The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, with an extended 30 minutes of gameplay.
The new footage features a lengthy look at the snap-together dungeon creator, highlighting how simple visual prompts let you know if your design works. It also takes a look at several mini-boss battles that will look very familiar to anyone who played the original.
The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening appears to be a very faithful remake of the 1993 Gameboy game of the same name. As highlighted in the trailer, Link’s Awakening was remains a very different kind of Zelda game, with cameos from Mario characters, short side-scrolling segments, and other oddities that would be a bit out of place in Hyrule.
The remake will come alongside a new Amiibo featuring Link in the game’s new art style. US customers can get the Dreamer Edition that includes a book of concept art, while Europe gets a Limited Edition with an art book and a steelbook case modeled after a Gameboy.
