Link's Awakening depicts another iconic quest of legendary Hyrule hero who washed ashore of a mysterious island of Koholint after having his ship wrecked on a raging storm one night and an unconscious Link was found by a young girl named Marin.

He got his sword and shield back but in order to leave the island, he will have to collect a bunch of magical items to awaken the Wind Fish. So he goes through on dungeon to another, fighting enemies and uncovers many hidden secrets of Koholint.

Since this is going to be a complete remake of 1993 Game Boy classic, its story remains the same as original and unlike other Zelda titles; it takes place entirely out of Hyrule where most of his heroic adventures usually take place.

In a modern re-imagining, Link's in-game sprite looks like mini amiibo figures rendered in polished colorful and cartoonish 3D graphic, thus staying faithful to original concept of the game while making an appeal to a new generation.

What is unique to remake is an all-new dungeon creator that lets player create their custom dungeon chamber layouts and arrange them. Clearing through story mode will earn you dungeon rooms that you can use to create new design maps.

Once complete, play those chambers by fighting enemies and solving riddles to earn more rewards. During your playthrough, you will also come across enemies like Goombas, Piranha Plants and more from Super Mario series.

Both digital and physical version of Standard Edition is priced only $59.99 but no pre-order bonus has been announced so far. For $69.99, you can own Link's Awakening: Dreamer Edition that comes with base game and an art book.

Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening remains of the greatest from TLoZ series and now that Nintendo is reworking it for Switch, we can probably expect them to pick its predecessor A Link to the Past or sequel Ocarina of Time for a remake next.
