Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening remake will include a new dungeon building mode


It ain't Zelda Maker, but it's something

During this morning's E3 Nintendo Direct, we got to check out gameplay footage from what must be one of the publisher's most anticipated releases, the remake of Game Boy classic The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening.

Alongside new footage of a very cute looking Link in action, exploring the famous beaches and forests of the 1993 adventure, we also saw a new dungeon building mode, where our hero can put together his only deadly caverns using "chambers" collected on his quest. These can then be arranged to create your own "Chamber Quest". Fun!

Alongside the release of Link's Awakening, fans can also pick up a new Link amiibo and a special "Dreamer's Edition" of the game, which includes the game, naturally, the new amiibo and a special art book features concept art of the remake's world and characters.

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening launches September 20.
