Here Is the Way Zelda: Link’s Awakening Shift Manages the First’s secret ending

This was the case for the two versions of Link’s Awakening introduced back in the afternoon, on the Game Boy and Game Boy Color, and it is something the newest Nintendo Switch variant of this game incorporates also.

After waking the Windfish and watching Koholint Island vanish, Link wakes up floating in the sea holding to a driftwood. Had the whole adventure been a fantasy? No – because the hulking Windfish itself unexpectedly seems, flying overhead.

It is here the end credits roll, and after those you are going to find a closing”The End” message.

But if you’ve beaten the whole of Link’s Awakening without dying, you will then get a heartwarming Easter egg featuring Marin, Link’s crush and nearest in-game ally.

Throughout your adventure, Marin informs you she needs nothing more than to leave Koholint herself, and will wish into the Windfish to make it happen.

“If I had been a seagull, I would fly up to as I could! I’d fly to far away places and sing for a lot of men and women! … When I want to the Wind Fish, then I still wonder if my dream may come true”

And it’s this you’ll get to see whether you have that no-death save – the consequence being Marin got her wish and was spared, even though Koholint Island being not any more.Join Us zelda links awakening rom website

From the original Game Boy Link’s Awakening, Marin’s sprite was given wings – like a floating thing in one of those game’s dungeons. She simply flew on the”The End” screen.

The implication here is not as that Marin has sprouted wings, and much more that her wish has literally come true.

At length, from the Nintendo Shift version, which will be a direct remaster of this DX ending. Again, we see a vision of Marin, before the seagull flies away. Is Link just recalling her when he sees the seagull? Or has never been reincarnated as a spirit? The game lets you decide.

It’s one of the many ways Link’s Awakening on Change remains true to the first game – which in turn proved to be a big reason I found so much to love about this particular movie. “Koholint deserves nothing less, while Link must travel to leave its shores, this model will always be a place that keeps the island to others to follow,” I composed in Eurogamer’s Link’s Awakening Shift review.
