    There is a rumor that A Link to the Past will be included in the Links Awakening Remake. Is this true or is this fake? I would love for this to be true because that was such an amazing game on the SNES. It would look so amazing using the Links Awakening engine.

    why are there enemies from the Mario games lol?

    • DylanDude
      DylanDude 12 days ago

      ElSAVALDORfunes That’s entirely false and doesn’t make any sense. The sprites used for the Mario enemies in Link’s Awakening are unique, and therefore take up just as much space as original enemies would’ve.

      ElSAVALDORfunes I also realized this is a totally different game than I thought. Was thinking this was a remake to link to the past whoops

      When original was created, cartridge didn't have more room for new designs reason they reused old designs

    Für etwa 13 Stunden Spielzeit sind die 60€ als Preis zu viel verlangt und auch sehr Frech. Für den selben Preis bin ich mit Zelda breath of the Wild auf über 200 Spielstunden gekommen. Nintendo halt. Sklave des Geldes

    Nintendo fans on the switch vs ps4 debate: it doesn’t matter if switch has worst graphics because it doesn’t mean anything
    Also Nintendo fan: you should buy a remake of a 2d Zelda game that costs like $7 because they “improved the graphics
    Ahahahahahaha nice

    Damn. Maybe I’m just petty. But I liked the last one a lot. And would rather they stick to that type of gameplay. I won’t be buying this. Hopefully it’s fun tho

      I guess you didn't hear about the Breath of the Wild sequel? This is how Zelda games started. I feel that they should make both types of games because they are both amazing.

    • DylanDude

      Breath of the Wild is getting a sequel, this is a remake just to hold us over.

  • Kyle Hill

    This isn't worthy for the Switch it should be a 3DS title to give it some love. This is actually an insult coming from BOTW. I take it that Nintendo is trying to target those who hate non liner Zelda so they are going to dumb way down. I just want a NEW 2D Zelda game if they are going to do this so we will all be surprised. I have never played LA but I know that it's not new and will over a short time the flaws will come out pretty quickly after universal praise and usual censorship by the same fans.

    • Creepy Noodles
      Creepy Noodles 12 days ago

      This game is more than deserving of a remake. It was one of the best Zelda games ever made and I personally am happy to buy it again. I think you should give it a try.

    • cresun

      Nintendo has already begun to consider the Switch as a handheld alongside the 2/3DS family, just more powerful. They seem to be going in a less console specific direction forward, which isn't too bad, either. I think in the future, their focus will likely be more oriented towards providing their games on a single platform, to solve the dilemma of needing multiple devices to play different games. At least that would be a more convenient approach for their consumers.

    As great as all LoZ music is, "Ballad of the Wind Fish" is the greatest. But someone always starts chopping onions whenever I hear it.

    • Creepy Noodles

      You should definitely try the Link's Awakening remake. It is one of the best Zelda games ever made, in my opinion.

  • austinrrrodrigues

    okay my boys so, i’m sensing a lil mandela effect here. when i watched this for the first time, i could’ve sworn the title was “link’s REawakening” but uh yeah no

      No. Sorry to say this, but the 3ds is long dead. It isn't even being shown on Nintendo's website anymore.

      Creepy Noodles 8 days ago

      @whosmansisthis How exactly is it ugly? It perfectly fits the game. I guess it's your loss if you never buy one of the best video game consoles.

    • whosmansisthis
      whosmansisthis 8 days ago

      I'll just stick to the original I hope if I do buy put it in the Nintendo shop
