Here's 30 minutes of the upcoming Zelda: Link's Awakening remake


Yep, it looks great

The Zelda: Link’s Awakening remake (co-handled by Nintendo and Grezzo, who have worked on multiple 3DS remakes and projects)is out next month on September 20. That’s soon!

It feels like we got a lot of info at E3 and are kind of cruising into its launch, but this week at Gamescom Nintendo dished out a massive 30-minute playthrough. Watch at your own risk! You’ll mostly be okay though, as the presenters refrain from digging too deeply in favor of a general overview.

This video is useful for multiple reasons. At the start, the presenters do a good job of getting folks who may have missed out on Link’s Awakeningentirely up to speed. But veterans are also able to dig into the more granular aspects, like overworld nuances and physics changes.

A few highlights: skip to 4:00 if you want to hear Marin’s song! Or, go to 5:00 for a rundown of the new detailed map system.
