The results are in

It's official: The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX is the 3DS Virtual Console's best-selling game of 2011 in Europe and North America.

Link's legendary adventure tops the all-time Virtual Console charts in the UK and North America — live later today — beating off competition from Mario, Samus and Kirby.

In fact, the game is the second biggest seller overall in the eShop, just behind temporarily free behemoth 3D Classics: Excitebike.

Here's hoping this bodes well for future Game Boy Color games coming to 3DS Virtual Console.
