The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening looks gorgeous, sounds beautiful, and tells a twee and compelling tale. While the game can be played through in around ten hours if you know what you're doing in advance, new players will find a lengthy and engaging Zelda game to love. Whether it's your first time playing Link's Awakening or your dozenth, you will still find a gripping Switch game that you'll remember for another twenty years.

Link’s Awakening retains the style and feel of its 1993 self, but looks and controls like a game – albeit a retro-styled one – made in 2019. In doing so, this feels like it was made in some alternate present, where games remained in 2D, puzzle-focused and strange, but tech improved to support it all. You could, I guess, call it time travel.

The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening was fantastic back in 1993 and the original is still great to this day. But Grezzo’s remake is now the definitive Link’s Awakening experience. If you missed it on the Game Boy, there is no question that this is a must-buy for Switch owners. Koholint Island features some of the best dungeons, level design, weapons, and boss battles in the entire series. Everyone should come to its shores to awaken the Wind Fish.
