Nintendo UK has unveiled a fan art competition to celebrate the upcoming release of The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening. Entrants will have up until the week of the game’s release to submit their artwork, with a deadline of September 16. The grand prize winner will receive a Nintendo Switch console along with a limited edition copy of the game, glorious GameBoy steelbook and all. Two additional runners-up will receive the game for free. Outside of prizes, several creative artists will have their work featured on various Nintendo social media accounts, so look forward to seeing some great The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening-themed pieces on your feeds over the next few weeks. For any artsy UK residents who might be interested in entering, you can find more information on the contest itself and all of the legal mumbo jumbo in its terms and conditions at the official contest page on Nintendo’s website.
The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening has an absolutely fantastic art style, so a fan art competition is a very spirited way to celebrate its forthcoming release. I am quite excited to see what sorts of creations people share–Zelda artwork will be a nice change of pace from Nintendo’s drip-feed of ten-second gameplay videos.
