A Game Boy fantasy adventure like no other!
Nintendo's fantasy adventure hero, Link of Hyrule, returns in this new eopic quest... Link's Awakening.

His goal: find the eight instruments of the Sirens and awaken the omnipotent Wind Fish which rules the island.
Link will battle new enemies and make new friends in one of the most in-depth fantasy adventures for Game Boy yet!
