SPOILERS FOR LINK’S AWAKENING AHEAD
From the quirky townsfolk of Mabe Village to the wild, yet still adorable, creatures that roam Koholint Island, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening remake lovingly transforms the original’s pixel art into a breathtaking scene out of a child’s toybox. And to celebrate the launch of this hidden gem, we compared each of the game’s nine main bosses to their original Game Boy incarnations to show off how far the game has come.
Thanks for watching and be sure to check out Jeff Cork’s review, saying it “beautifully captures the essence of the Game Boy original while adding some quality-of-life upgrades to bring it up to contemporary standards.”
