During today's Nintendo Direct it was revealed that the 1993 Game Boy Zelda entry Link's Awakening is getting the remaster treatment, and it's coming to Switch later this year.

Regarded by many as one of the best instalments in the entire Zelda series, Link's Awakening sees the famous Hero of Time marooned on a strange island and is heavily inspired by the equally beloved SNES entry, Link to the Past. Nintendo is recreating the entire game in 3D, but it will retain the unique side-scrolling stages of the Game Boy original.
