Nintendo's marquee release for Switch this month, The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, arrives alongside the new Nintendo Switch Lite on September 20. A remake of the classic Game Boy game of the same name, Link's Awakening finds the titular hero stranded on the mysterious Koholint Island, where he'll need to gather the eight Instruments of the Sirens to rouse the Wind Fish from its slumber and make his way home. While the game looks to be a faithful reimagining of the original, it also introduces some new content, namely a dungeon editor that allows you to arrange your own custom labyrinths.
