In today's Nintendo Direct on 02.13.2019, just before the end of the video, Nintendo revealed a remake of The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening. It's in a cartoonish 3D graphics style, looks great!

However there is one interesting part, there are Mario's famous foes Goombas in a side scrolling section of the game. Could Mario himself or other characters from the Mushroom Kingdom make an appearance in this remake?

The Link's Awakening release is scheduled for some time in 2019. The original game was released in 1993 for the Game Boy. A version was released in full color on the Game Boy Color as Link's Awakening DX in 1998.

EDIT: Just remembered that Goombas were always in Link's Awakening - even the original! In fact there are quite a few Mario elements such as Chain Chomps and Piranha Plants. There's even a Yoshi doll in one of the shops!
