The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening Gets New Trailer Ahead of Release

Get one last look at the remake of Link's Awakening ahead of its arrival on Switch.

Believe it or not, there’s a new Zelda game coming out next week, which is strange. Or, well, I guess it’s kind of a new Zelda game. Anyway, ahead of the release of the remake of Link’s Awakening, Nintendo has today let loose a new trailer which shows off quite a bit of new gameplay footage.

The trailer that Nintendo launched today is an overview trailer that comes in a little over 4 minutes in length. In typical overview trailer fashion, this video introduces you to all of the main elements of Link’s Awakening that you’ll learn about while playing. Basically, if you have no idea about what Link’s Awakening is, this is a great video to catch you up.

The video begins by explaining the story of Link’s Awakening and the island that Link finds himself upon this time around. We then get to see some of the many items that you can acquire over the course of the game and how some of them function. Dungeons, mini-games, and some of the characters that you’ll find while playing Link’s Awakening can also be seen here.

I know this goes without saying at this point, but jeez, this game is just so charming. The new animations and art style in this remake are adorable and make me so much more excited to finally dive into this game, especially as someone who never played the original game to completion back in the day.

You can check out the new trailer below if you’re interested. The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening will arrive exclusively on Nintendo Switch next week on September 20.
