Description


“Castaway, you should know the truth!”

As Link, you awaken in a strange land away from Hyrule, where animals talk and monsters roam. To uncover the truth behind your whereabouts and rouse the legendary Wind Fish, explore Koholint Island and all its trap-ridden dungeons, reimagined in stunning detail for this new release of one of the most beloved The Legend of Zelda games. Along the way, you’ll meet a hilarious assortment of charming characters to which you’ll never want to say goodbye.

In this new version of the game, the classic soundtrack has been reborn with new arrangements, and now you can equip more items at once, review key conversations, and navigate the map in new ways. Try your hand at the renovated mini-games to earn dolls based on the Super Mario series…or Chamber Stones. These unusual stones can be used to arrange your own Chamber Dungeons; each one is a puzzle in and of itself! Place chambers from dungeons found throughout the game on a series of objective-based grids… Where should the bosses go? How do you get from the entrance to the stairwell? They’re your dungeons, so arrange them however you see fit. To earn more Chamber Stones, you must conquer the main adventure’s dungeons and mini-games or tap any amiibo featuring a The Legend of Zelda character to unlock Chambers exclusive to amiibo.​

Q: How many players can play at one time? Thanks!

BOTW SUPREMACY !!!!

urmom - 7 months ago
after playing BOTW every Zelda game feels boring in comparison. maybe it’s the genre shift, but this one feels formulaic and very repetitive. sucks but maybe I would have enjoyed it more had I not had been tainted by botw (in the best way possible) it’s just hard to go back to the old Skool Zelda games

This is a beautiful video game. 9 year old enjoyed this game off and on. It was a little difficult for him so he loses interest but eventually goes back to it.

Fun and cute smaller game

4 out of 5 stars
katie - 2 years ago
So, this game is a remake of a Gameboy game that came out in the 1990s, but I had never played the original, so this was my first experience with it. First thing I noticed is the graphics in the game are very cute - they are a cartoony 3D look that is very fun and gives the game a very nice aesthetic. The gameplay itself allows for a bit exploration and roaming around, but you mostly have to do things a certain way to advance. There are several dungeons that you have to do in order, and there are some quests, like a series of item trades, that must be done in order too. And sometimes what you need to do isn't all that intuitive. You will often get hints along the way, but I had to consult online walkthroughs several times to get past a part that had me stumped or frustrated. There are some puzzles, but I would say they are generally pretty easy, but sometimes I sure found myself confused. Although this is a Zelda game, it's nothing like Breath of the Wild. I have only played these two Zelda games, but I have heard that Breath of the Wild is a major departure from the rest of the franchise because Breath of the Wild is an open-world game where you can go anywhere and do anything whenever you want. If you're gonna pay full price for a game and you want hundreds of hours of gameplay, get Breath of the Wild. But if you're looking for a smaller, fun and easy game where you stay on the rails and follow a set story, you'll get tens of hours out of this, depending on your play style. This game isn't at the top of my list for Nintendo Switch, but I do think it's cute and fun for what it is.

Absolutely fantastic. Me and my wife both played through (I think it is the first game she has ever finished, and while I didn't finish it I did get very close -- and I never finish games). Very fun, great to watch others play as well.

It’s a cute game but it can also be pretty frustrating. It was a little hard for me to understand at first. I had to google a few aspects. Overall it’s a good play just requires a lot of thinking and sometimes coming back to if you get stuck.
