    The new Style of the Game is cute but it is a bit too Cartoony (In Parts of the Overworld) in Dungeons and Caves it looks good, but in Areas where there is Direct sunlight, it looks a bit too Cartoony for me. The Intro would be nice in the final Game.

    You do realized we only seen a clip of it, right? Not to mention, what kind of enhancements are you even looking for?

    Only thing I hope is that someone managed to hack this thing day one and changes the 3D models.
    That shit looks like a stupid Link Funko toy, I don't know why they went with that for the artstyle.

    I'm so glad someone made that video. I wouldn't have been able to see the subtle differences between the games without it..

    You are right that we’ve seen only a clip but it’s enough to get a feel of the game in general.

    I simply feel that not enough changes were made to the game to justify remaking it. Nintendo will continue to milk that nostalgia cow until it starts producing powdered milk and not even that will stop them.

    You know with the Switch I was hoping for new games, not ports and remakes.

    This just goes to show that art is definitely subjective. Some people hated the art-style but I personally loved it. Looking forward to this game.
    Hopefully, they'll remake Zelda II soon-ish. :lol::rofl2:

    Link's Awakening was never a good game to begin with and this is a hill I'll die on. Even if this remake fixes annoying things like additional equip slots, speeding certain things up, it'd still not be very good. The only cool thing about the game is being able to jump, but otherwise the overworld is extremely bland, the music gets really annoying, the dungeons are short and all feel the same similar to the first Zelda, I could go on. And now the game has this disgusting, cheap looking art style? Hard pass.

    All the salt in this thread aside...
    Most of the game is a side-scroller, I wonder if a remake would stay faithful to that.

    It was pretty good compared to the two other 8 bits Zelda games. And having it on an handheld device was amazing back then.

    I don't know.. Some people dismissing this art style but acting like A Link Between Worlds looks better? Hm.

    This game made me curious... are there any Zelda games that are story-heavy, except the obvious Switch one? I haven't played any of Zelda and ordered Breath of the Wild a few days ago, but I do have a modified 3DS and not really sure where to start with Zelda and should I even start in the first place...

    On your lap.
    Hopefully Link's Awakening fans will get better treatment than Pokémon Yellow fans this time.

    Ocarina of Time 3D was my first Zelda game and I loved it. Story in it was pretty basic though I guess. Majora's Mask 3D is all about reliving the same 3 Days and doing different things to uncover more of the story and mysteries around the region. Apart from those 2, only other Zelda game I've played is Skyward Sword which is very story driven.

    Breath of the Wild doesn't have a story. Theres like 10 cutscenes through the whole game and you probably wont even see them unless you go out of your way to look, but they don't add anything so why bother.

    This game is short. I hope that they make it bigger.
