The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening

It’s really hard to pass up a remake of a childhood classic when it returns 26 years after it initially launched.

The art and the trailers we have seen for this game so far make it look nothing less than a lovingly recreated title that retains the charm of the original. For that, I can’t possibly complain.
