As many people know the The Legend Of Zelda: Link’s Awakening: Remake is set to be released later this year in September 2019 for the Nintendo Switch. For those who do not know Link’s Awakening is a 90’s Classic that was initially released for Game Boy back in 1993. Since its release Link’s Awakening has been seen as one of the most popular entries ever within the Zelda series and eventually went on to sell approximately 5 million units worldwide by the early 00’s. Since the release of Link’s Awakening many people have wondered whether or not Nintendo was ever going to develop a high definition remake of the game for past 10-15 years. Since we are now getting a modernized version of Zelda: Link’s Awakening its something that can appeal to both retro and contemporary gamers who currently own a Nintendo Switch.
As far as whether or not the newest version of Link’s Awakening will be as popular as the original is something that remains to be seen. The Nintendo Switch has arguably been as popular within the past two years as Game Boy was back in the 90’s. But as far as sales are concerned it would not be surprising if Zelda: Link’s Awakening sold over one million copies worldwide within its first month seeing how much attention the game has been getting since E3 2019.
