The art style will take a bit of getting used to - christ, I feel like a Zelda fan when Wind Waker released! - but Link's Awakening is my second favourite 2D Zelda behind ALBW, so this is 100% worth playing. And that goes double if you've not played the original!

I've started Links Awakening many a time but always bounced off it- I don't have a great track record with pre-DS 2D Zelda games - so hopefully this will be the ticket. I thought it looked cute enough.

Loved the art style for this & like Jay this is one of my favourite 2d Zelda games, though I did see some say they weren't keen on how it looked but I think it's just a bit of disconnect because of the amazing animated intro.

It's my own fault because as soon as the rumours started dropping for a 2D Zelda to be announced I instantly imagined something like ALBW's art style but with a cleaner look due to the Switch's extra oomph. I imagine Link's Awakening will grow on me visually over time.

Not feeling it so far as I’ve bounced off Awakening but I’m sure I’ll love it when I play it

I've been raving about this on GRcade already, but basically it looks perfect and I am so damn excited

Link's Awakening is not only the best Zelda game, it's my favourite game of all time

I was thinking the same as Jay, ALBW but HD'd not this. I reckon when I'm playing it, it will be cool and it's Zelda I always buy Zelda even the rubbish ones.

Y'know what? I really like that they can take risks with the visuals of a series that is this big, you can't really imagine any other dev other than Nintendo doing that & still having the majority of the fans on board/excited.

I get what they're going for with the art style (especially with what Link's Awakening is), but only time and experience with the game will tell if it suits it or not. Will the photo-realistic stopmotion graphics be able to convey a proper Zelda feel? Time will tell.

Jay mentioned it, but I'm getting serious Wind Waker vibes from all you moaners. Razz Athrun's stance is perhaps the correct one, but I think it looks wonderful. Like I could reach into the Switch screen and pick Link up!

Link's Awakening wasn't my favourite - I played it a bit too late in the day to be nostalgic. But in my mind that's exactly what a "2D" Zelda game should look like in this era - chuck awesome lighting at stylised models. I'm on board for this one. Hoot indeed

Same, this looks like the perfect excuse to go for it.

If this remake gets some of you to appreciate the true majesty of Link's Awakening then I am very happy Razz

This is going to be a day one purchase for me. What I would quite like to see is the option to have the old music from the GameBoy game. It was a nice feature that they put into HG/SS on the DS.
I do hope the camera can be moved up a bit though, more to the angle that they used in A Link Between Worlds.

A music option would be cool, although I'm certainly going to be playing with the new music first time round regardless. I'm interested if they keep the alternate music easter egg when you enter your name as ZELDA, or if Totaka's song still plays if you wait around in Richard's Villa

Hah, I probably could do a worryingly decent attempt Laughing

I restarted the game on 3DS a couple of nights ago but I almost immediately started messing about with the kennel world glitch. I have vague hopes of them deliberately including an easter egg related to it in the remake...
