The Switch’s big game this week is The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, and we’ve got all the reviews.

The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening is the authentic remake of the Game Boy original. Though the visuals have been drastically improved, Link’s Awakening doesn’t make too many changes to the original classic in terms of design.

The story follows on from the events of A Link to the Past, with Link having been shipwrecked on Koholint Island.

The remake includes all content in the Game Boy game, as well as the Color Dungeon that was later added in the Game Boy Color’s DX version. Amiibo fans will also be happy to know that there’s a new Link amiibo.

When Alex played the game in June he reported some framerate issues in some spots. Look out for his review in our round-up below to see if this has been ironed out for launch.
