Link is often tasked with rescuing Princess Zelda and her kingdom, Hyrule, from Ganon. Ganon is a demonic warlord and the main antagonist of the series. The plot takes twists in each game as the protagonist is a different incarnation of Link. The latest version of the game is The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening.

When you enter this game as Link you wake up in a weird land far away from Hyrule. The animals talk and monsters are roaming all around. The goal is to figure out the quirks where you are and get the attention of the legendary Wind Fish to explore Koholint Island. The island is riddled with traps and dungeons. Playing as Zelda, you will encounter a comical assortment of loveable characters to which you won’t ever want to leave behind.

In the newest version of this Nintendo Switch Game the soundtrack has been rearranged. Now you can grab more items at once, navigate your way around in different ways, and go over important conversations. You are able to play mini-games to earn dolls. Or, you can earn Chamber Stones that you place in dungeon chambers.

You have to figure out where the bosses should go and how to navigate getting from the entrance to a stairwell. These are your dungeons, so arrange them however you see fit. To earn more Chamber Stones, you are challenged to conquer the primary dungeons and the mini-games. Or, you can tap any of the amiibos that feature a The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening character to unlock the chambers.

I realize this may sound a little complicated. But, there is nothing complex about this game to a 10 year old. Pre-teens love Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda. This is a single player game that peaks curiosity and hones reflex skills. You can find out more about the series at the official website.
