Link's Awakening's Possible Release Date

My prediction is that Link's Awakening will be released on June 6, 2019.

About four days ago, I made a prediction of release dates for The Legend of Zelda series. Part of my predictions were affected by Link's Awakening, and I have a rough idea of its release window.

Hours right before Nintendo Direct 2.13.2019, Nintendo removed the code for the leaked SNES games on the Nintendo Switch. Even then, that doesn't stop me from believing that the SNES games will be released on September 19. Among one of those SNES games is A Link to the Past.

Taking a look at previous releases, INCLUDING spin-offs, Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition and The Legend of Zelda were released five months apart on the Switch. The Adventure of Link was also released five months after The Legend of Zelda.

There's a chance it would be released on May or June, and I think it would be June, given that was the ORIGINAL VERSION's release date. That would give about four months before those SNES games launch, with A Link to the Past.

What are your thoughts? When do you think Link's Awakening will launch?

Is it just me or are they not a very good way to travel? The call distance is ridiculously small and they don’t follow you when you fast travel. Am I doing something wrong?

It might have finally happened...

I was playing Ocarina of Time again, but somehow I'm not getting as much fun of it as I used to.

I think Breath of the Wild has overtaken it as my favorite Zelda game. (Not counting Hyrule Warriors)

The Lost Red Logo of The Legend of Zelda

It was 1991 when Nintendo adopted the official main, regal, red The Legend of Zelda logo for A Link to the Past, and it was used for the rest of the franchise ever since then. While some games sported alternate colours, such as Oracle of Ages using Blue and Majora's Mask using Purple, most of the games used the traditional red, that is until Breath of the Wild, where they went White with cracks around it.

With the announcement of Link's Awakening on the Nintendo Switch, we saw that same logo style again, instead of the original regal style we saw in the original and DX versions. This new logo style could be the standard that we see today.

What are your thoughts on the change? Do you think the next game, whether a sequel or remaster/remake, will use this style as well?

New Category

Given that there's a Breath of the Wild category, and Link's Awakening for Nintendo Switch was recently announced, can we have a Link's Awakening category?

The Foreshadowing of Link's Awakening in Plain Sight

I'm sensing that Link's Awakening on the Nintendo Switch was to be expected, and it was right in plain sight all this time.

In August 2018, the Timeline was updated, and Link's Awakening the game that was moved. It moved to set BEFORE Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages.

No other game had these move-arounds and whatnot. This is the ONLY game in the Timeline that was moved. Clearly, Nintendo planned to fix up the Timeline with the release of Link's Awakening.

What are your thoughts about this? Was this game really hiding under our noses the whole time?

What makes Link's Awakening on Nintendo Switch different from "3D" or "HD" Zelda games.

Link's Awakening on the Nintendo Switch is a drastically different game compared to other revisions we saw in the past. What makes this so different than the other games from before?

To clear things up, Ocarina of Time 3D, The Wind Waker HD, Twilight Princess HD, and Majora's Mask 3D are all REMASTERS. Link's Awakening DX is an ENHANCED PORT. Link's Awakening on Nintendo Switch is a REMAKE.

An ENHANCED PORT is the exact same game, with slightly improved graphics (such as colour being added in LA DX) and a little extra content added in, but the overall gameplay, mechanics, and engine remains the exact same, sometimes slightly modified, but generally the same.

A REMASTER is much like an ENHANCED PORT, but there is a significant change in graphics (3D games getting major retextures, HD games having clearer textures). Extra content is added in, and the gameplay is improved by a lot (notably frame rate), but the game remains the same.

A REMAKE is a completely new game, but based on the original game. In this case, Link's Awakening on the Nintendo Switch is no remaster. It's an entire remake of the game, and here's why:

- The screen now continuously moves with the player

- Diagonal movement

- New game engine

There are likely numerous other differences that we haven't seen yet.

What are some things you want to see different in Link's Awakening? What do you want them to keep the same?

Strongest weapon found in Breath of the Wild

I'm curious as to what the strongest weapon anyone has found in BotW.

The strongest weapon I have found, was a Savage Lynel Crusher, with an attack up extra ability, and tbe total attack stat was 103.

I just want to know what other people's strongest were.

Am I the only one who likes the Link's Awakening remake art style?

I think it looks kinda cute, Not what I would have expected, but it is pretty neato. Especially seeing Link's Awakening in itself is kinda different from a lot of Zeldas

New Prediction Timeline for The Legend of Zelda series

Due to the recent announcement of The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening remake for Nintendo Switch, my predictions for upcoming Zelda games have changed. Here's my timeline of releases:



- The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Wii U, Nintendo Switch)

- The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (Nintendo Switch)

- Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Nintendo Switch)


- Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition (Nintendo Switch)

- Diablo III (Nintendo Switch)

- The Legend of Zelda (Nintendo Switch)

- Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (Nintendo Switch)


- Zelda II: The Adventure of Link (Nintendo Switch)

- The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening (Nintendo Switch, unreleased)



- The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (Nintendo Switch, release in September)


- The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword (Nintendo Switch, release in November)

- The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass/The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks (Nintendo 3DS, release in June)


- The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons/The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages (Nintendo Switch, release in June)


- Untitled Breath of the Wild sequel (Nintendo Switch, release in March)

Take the 3DS remasters with a grain of salt. I have no confidence that Nintendo will push the 3DS as far as 2020. Looking at the sales now, they somewhat drastically decreased, with the poor sales of the Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story remake.

Again, I'm not predicting OoT or MM in this, because they already got remasters. Those remasters aren't old enough to need another remaster.

Anyways, what are your predictions for the franchise? Do you agree with my predictions?

Poll #9 - Favourite Platform for Link's Awakening


I had a different topic in mind when it came down to this poll, but I changed it because of the recent reveal of Link's Awakening for the Nintendo Switch. The link to the poll is provided above.

As usual, the results of the previous poll are provided below, and I'm not too surprised by it. I wouldn't get into too much detail about that poll because its results are as I expected them to be.

What are your thoughts about the previous poll?

Link's Awakening - A Interesting Remake

If you didn't know already, The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening is getting an HD remake for the Nintendo Switch. Surprisingly, this is NOT a remaster.

Now, I have some very mixed opinions for this, but it doesn't mean I don't like it. Of course, Link's Awakening was one of the many requested remasters, but umm....wow. I'm going to be very honest, but I was never expecting it.

What differences will there be? I'm going to expect lots, and probably something that gives players a better understanding of the Timeline.

The art style was interesting, but I'm wishing it was more of the A Link Between Worlds style.

What are your thoughts of this remaster? What was your initial reaction?

What do you think of The Legend of Zelda: Link between World’s OST?

I love The Legend of Zelda Link between World and the OST is just the cherry on top!

I love the orchestration of each of every track and the mood that they set.

I feel like the soundtrack isn’t talked about enough and I want to see what you guys think about it!

Just for reference here’s some of the OST for reference: https://soundcloud.com/user-802948704/sets/the-legend-of-zelda-a-link-1

Do comments count as "posts"?

I'm curious if you can get banned or warned for making multiple comments.

I got a notification that said that you can't make more than 2 posts, but do comments count as these "posts"?
