Leading up to the latest Nintendo Direct at this year’s E3 announced that the title will be hitting the eShop on September 20, 2019.

Unlike the initial 1993 title, the coming reworked game will instead offer a top-down view with a more chibi and light-hearted look for the title. Though this is a reimagine of the original game, the main basis for the story’s plot is about the same more or less.

One interesting feature presented was the dungeon creator which allows players to craft their own tombs for Link to explore and collect new rewards. To create a dungeon, players will need chambers which are unlocked by progressing through the game and in result layout the dungeon for you to prospect and find the secrets hidden within.

During the same event-respected Direct, it was revealed that Nintendo has already started development on the sequel for 2017’s The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
