You can pre-load Zelda: Link's Awakening on Switch right now


So long, voucher

We've reached the one-month mark until The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening washes ashore on Nintendo Switch. I'm ready. You're ready. But let's get extra ready. The dazzling remake is up for pre-purchase, meaning you can download the files and have the game ready to go for September 20.

It's a 5.8GB download (falling right in line with Super Mario Odyssey, funny enough), and if you have a spare Nintendo Switch Game Voucher, you can redeem it for Link's Awakening. That's what I did.

The only problem is that whenever I play Switch now, Link's cute lil face will be staring back at me.
