Grab Zelda: Link's Awakening Remake On Switch For $40

One of last year's best Switch games, Link's Awakening, is getting a discount at various retailers for Cyber Monday.


The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening was one of 2019's biggest Switch releases, but if you've yet to pick it up, Cyber Monday 2020 will be a great time to do so. The Switch exclusive was discounted at several major retailers as part of their Black Friday sales, giving you a chance to snag one of last year's best titles for cheap. While it's currently out of stock at Walmart, where it was on offer for the lowest price of $30, you can still pick it up for $40 as part of GameStop's Cyber Monday sale. Check out more of the best Cyber Monday deals in our roundup.

Link's Awakening is a full remake of the classic Game Boy game of the same name. Unlike a typical Zelda adventure, the game is not set in Hyrule proper but rather on the strange, dream-like Koholint Island, where Link must conquer puzzle-filled dungeons and gather eight magical instruments to wake the sleeping Wind Fish and return home.

"Though the remake has a couple of blemishes, it's still an easy game to recommend," we wrote in our The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening review. "People speak of Link's Awakening as the secret best Zelda game. That's a tough call to make, but it's definitely one of the best. If you haven't touched a classic Zelda game in a while, Link's Awakening will almost instantly transport you back to the '90s. It's simple, in many ways, but the orchestrated journey still conveys a sense of adventure, and this new version is without question the best way to experience it. And more than anything else, it will put a smile on your face."

We'll be rounding up a lot more Cyber Monday deals through the end of this weekend leading into Cyber Monday, so check back often for the best savings.
