I grew up playing Zelda on the first ever released Nintendo. What I love about Zelda is the music, the gameplay and the story. It brings back memories of childhood, even just by listening to this trailer I’m transported back 30 years.

It looks at if Nintendo has made some major improvements, especially graphically. Which is to be expected since at the time of its original release the gaming community was honestly just a fledgling.

Zelda: Links Awakening basically tells the story of Link being stranded on Koholint Island. It came out in 1993, (yes 26 years ago) but Zelda, Link, those are timeless characters with storylines that are engaging and this will definitely be a game that I, along with many other people will be playing.
