The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening is finally here (well, again) and Nintendo is celebrating the big day in a number of different ways.
Among them are these Zelda-themed courses available to play in Super Mario Maker 2. Nintendo has shared the following designs in a blog post, talking about how the designs have recreated some of the trademark ideas found within the Zelda series itself.
If you're unable to pick up a copy of the new Zelda game today but do have Super Mario Maker 2 sitting at home, why not load these up and get into the spirit anyway?
Let us know how you get on with these in the comments below.

Um... this is the third iteration of Link's Awakening following the monochromatic original in 1993 and the deluxe colourised release for the GBC in 1998.
@Silly_G This. The switch edition is a remake of the DX edition, not the black and white one.
This article should provide a link to the blogpost. EDIT: The picture with course codes didn't open for me.
@jobvd It does. It's listed in the sources for the article 🙂
@Silly_G Yeah I'ma gonna skip this one
@Silly_G Yeah, but it's not like the DX version is a completely different game from the original. Just a cosmetic change and an extra (albeit completely optional) dungeon. The original statement is still valid.
@ryancraddock The Switch version has the color dungeon, like the DX version. So yeah, it's a remake of the DX version.
It looks like my copy won't arrive until Monday, so I'll definitely be playing these instead of staring angrily at the LA amiibo to tide me over.
Thanks for posting these, NL!
@jobvd do we need to specify if we're remaking black and white Psycho or the colorized Psycho with one bonus scene put back in? Pretty sure people can just say its a remake of the original source material and still be correct.
I thought the point of this article was Super Mario Maker, which I'm going to play right now.
I'd suggest some of you do the same.
Remember when Nintendo said they were gonna patch Mario Maker 2 to add online play with friends?
@Illusion Hardly. The fact that the game has colour makes it pretty obvious that this a remake of the DX version. It would be in black and white otherwise.
Would of prefer to have a Zelda Style to make levels with
Yo if they release a patch or an option to play Switch’s Link’s Awakening in black and white that would be so cool.
....then you all could say it’s a remake of both!
...that being said, now I really want that black and white filter option.
My copy arrives today (while I’m at work 😩) but I know what I’m doing tonight. Oh that and ni no kuni and link and snake amiibo. Today’s a great day!
These levels would be perfect for the Link amiibo powerup.. (still salty)
@ChromaticDracula Black and white...or green and green?
@ItalianBaptist I’d be happy with either but I think I’ll rephrase: green and (dark) green would be best 😊
I'm pretty sure I've already played some of these based on the pictures, so these aren't even new courses. It's nice to know that Nintendo still knows Mario Maker exists, we didn't get any mention of it in the last Direct.
A playlist function would be awesome.
An event course with a new Mystery Mushroom costume would be even better. Oh wait.
I'm 100% interested in playing these levels, and I've played the developer levels you've shared, but I wish it didn't all feel like a secret handshake. These levels aren't anywhere to be found on the "News" tab on the switch, and the search that came with the last firmware update is useless. I love Nintendo, but when a keyword search for "Mario" yields zero results, one starts to wonder if they're still in on the joke.
Gee, if only SMM2 supported the amiibo costumes so that you can actually look like Link while playing these levels....
