As far remakes can go, Nintendo really seals the deal on blending the nostalgic and the new.
In the latest 30 second trailer of Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, you will immediately be captivated by the beautiful re-imagination of the 1993 Nintendo classic.
The short yet sweet clip reminds us that remakes can amplify the original material’s atmosphere without bombarding viewers with state-of-the-art improvements.
Even the subtle rework of “Ballad of the Wind Fish” playing in the background shows how Nintendo is paying great attention to detail.
The new orchestration, with lyrics in Japanese, Korean, and English, gives a breath of fresh air along with the remake. It’s a fantastic artistic homage to the game’s original 8-bit anthem.
Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening will arrive on September 20.
