The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening is a remake of the 1993 GameBoy action-adventure title of the same name. The game retains the classic top-down perspective and gameplay elements while introducing a unique claymation-like visual style, a new dungeon builder mode, and amiibo support.

The story begins with Link washing up on a mysterious island of Koholint. After being nursed back to health by a local girl, he embarks on a quest to awaken the island’s guardian, the Wind Fish, by collecting eight magical instruments. Numerous dungeons, tricky enemies, and unique locals await.
