With the game launching today, Nintendo has brought online a The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening overview that you can watch above. You can order the game by clicking here.
In this reimagining of one of the most beloved games in the Legend of Zelda series, Link has washed ashore on a mysterious island, filled with strange and colorful inhabitants. To return home, Link must explore a reimagined Koholint Island that’s been faithfully rebuilt in a new art style. Along the way, he will battle enemies and conquer numerous dungeons riddled with tricks, traps and enemies, including some from the Super Mario series.
In the new Chamber Dungeon mode, players earn Chambers (dungeon rooms) throughout the story and arrange them to complete objectives. Launching alongside the game is an adorable new Link amiibo figure. By using this Link amiibo figure, players can unlock Shadow Link in the Chamber Dungeon.
The Nintendo Switch family of systems also welcomes a new addition today with the launch of Nintendo Switch Lite (order here). “The introduction of Nintendo Switch Lite gives people the choice of a Nintendo Switch system that best fits their needs and personal play style,” said Nick Chavez, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “With the simultaneous launch of The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, today is a great day for newcomers and existing Nintendo Switch owners alike.”
A lightweight device with integrated controls designed specifically to play Nintendo Switch games that support Handheld mode, Nintendo Switch Lite is available in three different colors: yellow, grey and turquoise. Nintendo Switch Lite has integrated controls and is smaller than the original version of Nintendo Switch.
As a dedicated handheld gaming device, Nintendo Switch Lite supports all Nintendo Switch software that can be played in Handheld mode. It’s ideal for people who have lots of opportunities to play on the go, and for anyone who wants to play online via Nintendo Switch Online or local wireless multiplayer with friends or family who already own a Nintendo Switch system.
