Video: We Weren’t Sure We Wanted A Zelda: Link’s Awakening Remake, Until We Got It

Be careful what you (don’t) wish for?

Link’s Awakening is one of the most beloved entries in the entire series, so it was, on paper, an obvious candidate for the remake treatment.

Switch Stretch Goal Announced For SNES Style RPG Chained Echoes

Mechs and airships, what more could you want?

German-based game developer Matthias Linda is hoping to release his SNES style RPG Chained Echoes on the Nintendo Switch. This game has been in development for two and half years and is inspired by fantasy titles of the ’90s, taking place in a 16-bit world where dragons are as common as piloted mechanical suits.

Like all good JRPG, you’ll take control of a group of heroes who must bring peace to a continent where war has been waged for generations. The game combines the simplicity of retro games with more modern design principles to offer a fast-paced adventure. Other than this, players can expect 20-25 hours of play time, no random encounters (as enemies can be seen around the game world), tons of items to be looted, stolen or crafted, a complex skill and equipment system, the ability to customise your own airship and music inspired by games from the PSX era.
