Nintendo's newest Zelda title isn't terribly new at all, as The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening for the Switch is a remake of the 1993 Game Boy title. While reviewers of the new remake have differing degrees of familiarity with the original release, they are overwhelmingly in agreement that it is an enjoyable and charming game.
GameSpot's Peter Brown said "the renewed presentation is easily the star of the show" in his 8 out of 10 review for GameSpot, praising the visual overhaul that gives all the game's denizens a glossy, rounded look.
