The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening is getting remade for Switch later this year. The announcement got Andrew Reiner, Suriel Vazquez, baby Leo Vader, and me thinking about its bizarre legacy, so we decided we had to revisit this old Game Boy title. We got so caught up in the adventure that we ended up playing it for the whole episode. It turns out that a really great Zelda game is still really great, even 26 years later.
