In the remake, our hero Link ends up on a mysterious island inhabited with odd but color creatures. To escape the island, Link is set to go on a journey that will see him collecting magical instruments and awaken the Wind Fish. Players get to explore Koholint Island that now appears with a brand-new art style. Numerous dungeons and hidden secrets are to be expected when going through the island. Link will retain some of his old weapons, but he will be seen with new stuff as well, such as Flippers, which will make him capable of swimming effortlessly across ponds, and the Power Bracelets, so our hero can lift heavy objects. Players get to collect items that will allow them to create their own dungeon using Chamber Dungeons. There are even mini-games for all like rafting, fishing, and a chance to win a Yoshi doll by playing a hand crane.
