    The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening (NSW) - Remaster - September 20, 2019

    Originally released for the Game Boy™ system more than 25 years ago, one of the most beloved games in the Legend of Zelda series returns. In this modern re-imagining, players once again return to the mysterious island of Koholint to guide Link on a perilous adventure.

    I'm not going to hate on the graphics but Link looks like one of the fucking elves from the claymation Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer special.

    The music remaster sounds terrible. Also not a fan of what they are trying to do with the graphics

    "most beloved", ehhhhhhhhh I dunno about that one.

    Also, from that clip, the movement speed seems significantly slower when compared to the GB version.

    I hate the graphics but I sure as hell will pick this up anyway. I was at just the perfect magical age when this game came out for it to form an enormous impression on me. the trading game, the seashells, that damn eagle's tower, the musical frog dude, the crane game, the roc's feather (JUMPING? IN MY ZELDA?!)... so many memories, I could go on forever.

    Not entirely sure how I feel about the art style/graphics choice but don't want to say i hate them just yet or I just feel like I'm falling into some serious Wind Waker deja vu.

    I think it looks okay but kind odd they didn't just go with the link between worlds model since it's basically identical to link to the past and that's the same link as link's in awakening.

    Honestly I really like the wood puppet aesthetic they got going on.

    I think the visuals are pretty nice and clean. I did notice the movement speed was slow. I won't pay $60 for this, but would consider around $30.

    I'm hoping they change the graphics A LOT for release. Structurally it looks clean, yes. But aesthetically I think it is a hot mess of nope. I really don't understand why they are not using LBW or Majoras Mask 3D level graphics.

    Don't do Tal Tal Heights dirty with that meh soundtrack either. This was the Majoras Mask "dark horse" title before Majoras Mask, please don't phone this in with a C or D team.

    UNLEASH THE MARIMBA, NINTENDO!

    Just feels like that hand-crafted aesthetic they're going for is spat on when you notice the environment is all built from tiles, and tiles that repeat ad nausea in some cases. They need some small flourishes between things like the trees or grass, or those roots, so it doesn't look so tiled/mechanical.

    It's the scaling and camera movement. He looks to be moving about the same speed I recall from GB, which was slightly slower than LTTP speeds.

    Because different aesthetics blah blah it's a different game etc etc stagnation, repetition, overthrow the fascist government regime, we've heard it all before. Also they would have to remake the entire game to suit that style and personally, I like the top-down gameplay such as this, Link to the Past/Between worlds.

    puppet look along with how the buildings and trees all move with the screen make it feel like a diorama and I think that's fun for what's not a massive entry in the series.

    I like the look.

    Damn it, now I have to get a switch when this comes out. Was my first owned Zelda (first played was LttP) and I remember being stuck for a year on L2 because I didn't know how to get the boss key lol (wasn't as bad as OOT being stuck in Forest temple for 5 yrs due to my intense arachnophobia XD).

    Around 1:20, you cant tell me movement speed is similar. Look at the side by side walking left to right infront of the dungeon.

    The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening (NSW) - Remaster - 2019

    I have faith they’ll put out a quality product.

    Link’s Awakening was one of the first games I played a ton as a kid. When I went to the Zelda live symphony I started fucking tearing up at the Ballad of the Windfish lol.

    Anyone getting deja vu here of when the time they first announced wind waker? Graphics reaction wise.

  18. #18

    Indeed lol. I find the graphics charming but I can at least understand why others may not. That said, when was the last time we got a *bad* Zelda game? Possibly Skyward Sword? Personally didn't play it but Nintendo has had a near flawless Switch record of "Is this good?" and Zelda's in general or usually something I enjoy, so I'm excited.
