The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening is an action-adventure game developed by Grezzo and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo Switch. It was released worldwide on September 20, 2019. Link’s Awakening is a remake of the 1993 game for the Game Boy. It retains the original’s top-down perspective and gameplay, along with elements from the 1998 re-release Link’s Awakening DX.
The game features a “retro-modern” art style unique within the series with toy-like character designs, diorama-like world designs, and tilt-shift visuals that evoke the original game’s presentation on the Game Boy. It also features customizable dungeons which the player can create and then complete for rewards. The game received positive reviews for its faithfulness, improved gameplay, and unique art style, while its technical issues were criticized. As of March 2021, the game has sold over 5.49 million copies worldwide, making it one of the best-selling games on the Nintendo Switch.
