It was previously teased and speculated that The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword would be coming to the Nintendo Switch. However Nintendo later clarified that this wasn’t true, but if you are looking for a new Zelda game to play on the console, then you’ll be pleased to learn that Nintendo has since announced that Link’s Awakening will be coming to the Switch.

For those who are unfamiliar, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening is not a new game. The game was originally released on the Game Boy more than 25 years ago, but it is now being remastered and reimagined for the Nintendo Switch, giving gamers a chance to play the game if they haven’t played it already.

However if you have played it already, then here’s a good opportunity for you to relive the good old days. As you can see from the trailer above, the game has been remastered and given a brand new set of graphics which looks pretty cute and fun. It is also very different from Breath of the Wild which had a more “grown up” feel, so if you do enjoy the Zelda games of old, this could be worth looking forward to.

There is no release date yet for Link’s Awakening, but it is set to be released later this year so we’ll keep an eye out for more details when they become available.
