The international waters of gaming have been getting some pretty sweet swag when it comes to the Link’s Awakening remake. The UK, for instance, got an amazing collector’s edition for the game, which includes a Game Boy Classic steelbook and an awesome 120-page artbook. So color us not surprised that the mainland of Nintendo, Japan, gets some nice goodies as well. My Nintendo in Japan is now offering some new Link’s Awakening prizes for those looking to spend some platinum…

I’m Matt Pederberg, I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Music, and Link’s Awakening is my favourite Legend of Zelda game. As such I am incredibly excited for the remake coming out later this month.

I have been a long time fan of The Legend of Zelda series, and I’ve tried to play through as many of the games as I can get my hands on.

(I was too busy playing Pokémon Yellow!) …

And that’s one reason why this job is so much fun! Seeing the passion of the fanbase explode with each new release cycle fuels…
