Complete The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening without a single death recorded in your save file and you’ll unlock a secret ending after the match credits.

This was the case for the two variations of Link’s Awakening released back in the afternoon, on the Game Boy and Game Boy Color, and it is something the new Nintendo Switch version of this game comprises also.

After stirring the Windfish and seeing Koholint Island vanish, Connect wakes up floating at the sea holding on to a driftwood. Had the entire adventure been a dream? No – since your hulking Windfish itself suddenly appears, flying overhead.

It’s here the end credits rollup, and following those you are going to find a final”The End” message.

But if you’ve defeated the entire of Link’s Awakening without expiring, you will then get a heartwarming Easter egg comprising Marin, Link’s beat and closest in-game ally.

During your experience, Marin tells you she wants nothing more than to depart Koholint herself, also will wish to the Windfish to make it occur.

“When I had been a seagull, I’d fly as far as I could! I would fly to far away locations and sing for many individuals! … When I want to the Wind Fish, then ” I wonder if my dream may come true”

And it is this you’ll get to determine whether you have that no-death save file – the implication being Marin obtained her wish and has been spared, even though Koholint Island being no more.

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

From the Game Boy Color variation, Link’s Awakening DX, a fantasy of Marin herself has been briefly seen, in front of a seagull is revealed flying off. The implication here is not as that Marin has sprouted wings, and more that her wish has come true.

In the end, in the Nintendo Shift version, which can be a direct remaster of this DX ending. We see a fantasy of Marin, before the seagull flies off. Is Link simply remembering her when he sees that the seagull? Or has never been reincarnated as a soul? The game lets you decide.

It is among many ways Link’s Awakening on Switch stays true to the original game – that in turn was a significant reason I found so much to appreciate about this movie. “Koholint warrants nothing less, and while Link must travel to leave its beaches, this version will always be a place which preserves the island to allow others to follow,” I wrote in Eurogamer’s Link’s Awakening Shift review.
