A treasured classic and the absolute pinnacle of Game Boy gaming.

It was inevitable...
Remember the stunning The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX PC port we reported about just the other day? Well, it's sadly no longer. Nintendo has issued a takedown notice for the fan-made port, and it has now been removed from its itch.io page (thanks
And does Breath of the Wild fit the mould?
Despite the overwhelmingly positive reception to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild when it launched back in 2017, there are undoubtedly those who yearn for a return to what they deem to be a more “traditional” Zelda experience. With its open world, shrines, weapon degradation, and ‘rune’...

It's the "longest ever gap" between new entries
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is an amazing game and we probably could keep playing it forever, but as you might recall, it's now been well over five years since this latest entry in the series was released (and next March will mark six). Yes, we're talking about brand new adventures here -...
Colour us impressed!
The humble Game Boy was an absolute marvel back in the day. Released prior to the SNES, the handheld system seemed positively futuristic when compared to the decidedly bulkier NES / Famicom. Looking at it today, however, there are plenty of noticeable drawbacks that have been ironed out considerably in the decades since with...
SNES classic goes head-to-head
Ahoy everyone, welcome back to another Box Art Brawl! We've got a great one for you this week, just in case the image and the title didn't quite give it away. Last week, we looked at Mario Golf (which is out now on Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pass!), pitting North America against Japan to determine which box...
Official art from Zelda, Zelda II and Link's Awakening
Earlier this month saw the launch of Nintendo's second modern Game & Watch system, this time inspired by The Legend of Zelda series. It's a cool little collectable to keep on your shelf at home, and aside from the odd little secret that it hides, one of its biggest selling points is the...
The Triforce of Website
It might be only us games journalists that get hot-under-the-collar for brand new Zelda key art, but this day is extremely special for us: Nintendo have just released three new websites for The Legend of Zelda, Zelda II, and Link's Awakening to prepare us all for the release of the Zelda Game & Watch in November.

Featuring four games
Did you like the Super Mario Game & Watch? Well you're in luck, because Nintendo is bringing out another Game & Watch title which contains Zelda games. And guess what?
What's reality anyway?

Today, Stu gets all dreamy about one of his favourite entries in the franchise...
A Game Boy fantasy adventure like no other!
Nintendo's fantasy adventure hero, Link of Hyrule, returns in this new eopic quest... Link's Awakening. Link's newest challenge is set on the mysterious Koholint Island, a place where dreams and reality collide. As a castaway, Link must find a way to escape from the island and return to his beloved homeland of Hyrule.
But it won't be as easy as chartering a boat. The island's inhaitants have no knowledge of the outside world. One creature, a talking Owl, may know the solution to Link's dilemma, but first Link must tackle eight dungeons full of treacherous monsters and tricky traps. His goal: find the eight instruments of the Sirens and awaken the omnipotent Wind Fish which rules the island.
Link will battle new enemies and make new friends in one of the most in-depth fantasy adventures for Game Boy yet!
