I think I would've hated this had I not played the original when I was a kid. The graphics updates are very pretty and there's a couple of nice QoL updates but the game design is still very outdated and frustrating, especially when it comes to figuring out where to go and actually getting there. I think all the future handheld Zeldas improved on this one a ton. I don't think this is worth it unless you're really craving more Zelda.

Finishing the original version of this game was the first time I can remember a game making me feel an emotion more complex than joy or anger.
The remake adds a layer of charm in animations and style, although the fish eye effect made me feel a bit ill at times. You don't need me to tell you that a Zelda is worth playing, but I will anyway.

Nintendo please capitalize on this artsyle like square enix is capitalizing on the octopath artstyle I beg of you

Yo pensaba que era un juego corto, pero estoy segurísima de que habré llegado a las 20 horas de juego. Y nosta mal. Zelda siempre es bien.

An awesome remake with great quality of life enhancements on my all-time favorite game from my childhood.

Good times! Faithful adaptation of a classic. Doesn't overstay its welcome. Charming and nostalgic.
