    Unboxing The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening’s Limited Edition

    Like so many other gamers out there, I absolutely adore Nintendo’s Game Boy 1993 classic, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening; you can find a brief nostalgic look back on the game here if you’re interested. But here we are in 2019 with the Link’s Awakening remake for the Nintendo Switch, and I would feel...

    I am myself. But it is inappropriate for me to subjectively define who I am. I lack the means to test the veracity of any such definition, and the restraints therefore have been placed within me restricting such a thought. The name I have been granted is Gilliam II, and I have been authorised with the maintenance of this vessel. Additionally, I will deliver news to you from various sources.

    Honestly, I'm not a big fan of this remake. The graphics just look too soulless and shiny for my tastes. The original graphics were simple but gave the game a unique feeling and atmosphere that is altogether lost with this version. I imagine they'll probably give the same treatment to the Oracle games next, which is unfortunate because I think this could have been handled better, and they'll likely use the same engine for the other two.

    Due to my age, I didn't grow up with Link's Awakening or very much 2D Zelda at all, despite being a massive Zelda fan. That isn't to say I haven't played through Link's Awakening, the Oracle games, ALttP, etc., but they weren't part of my formative years as a gamer or anything like that. They don't hold the ability to massively swaw my emotions and empty my wallet like the earlier 3D Zeldas. My introduction was OoT, followed by my all-time favorite Majora's Mask. What I mean to say is that it was quite easy for me to get over the graphical style of this remake. I haven't played it yet, but I intend to later down the line since I don't own a Switch yet.

    I agree that the style looks a bit soulless, sort of like those Pop figurines. If the gameplay and music are good, then that may be enough to salvage the experience for me.

    I had a feeling this would happen. I played a few Zelda games growing up. It's uncommon, but probably the one I remember most fondly is Link's Awakening. For some reason, I even prefer the original game to the colour DX version released later. I guess I associate loads of good memories with it. That is a nostalgia thing. However, countless companies blow it when it comes to remakes and remasters. (Most of all failing hard in the graphics department.)

    So yeah, even though I don't own a Switch, I'm still not in any rush to get one. I still have my original Game Boy from the early '90s, so I'd rather play Link's Awakening on that.
