It’s been 26 long years since Link first reared his green head in The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening on the original Game Boy. But now in 2019 he’s back, in full colour, and heading straight onto the Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo has faithfully recreated the 1993 title with improved visuals, depth of field and great texture work. But what exactly has changed below the surface?

In this video we’ll take a look at the gameplay, the art style and history of Link’s Awakening, how it compares to more recent Zelda adventures like Breath of the Wild, and what exactly you can achieve with the new addition of the dungeon creator mode.

Is The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening still relevant in 2019? Once you’ve checked out the all-new gameplay, you can read our full review of Nintendo’s latest here.
