The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening was originally released in mid-1993 for the GameBoy, Nintendo’s first handheld video game system. This was the first Legend of Zelda game that made it to the “small screen”, and is thus considered a groundbreaking entry into the series. The game was originally intended to be a sequel to A Link to the Past, the previous title in the series, but as the timeline scenarios have become so complex over the years, little can be directly confirmed about this.
In 1998, Link’s Awakening was re-released as Link’s Awakening DX, which was only playable on the Gameboy Color. This remake placed the player in a world of color, as well as adding a new, secret dungeon that was based on colors.
