ProtoMario uploaded a theory a few months ago that details whether or not Link from Hyrule could possibly know of Mario from the Mushroom Kingdom. He notes that when two games have the same director, then there might be areas for crossover. He suggests that Link’s Awakening provides some interesting Easter eggs that later serve as evidence for his theory. ProtoMario summarizes Link’s Awakening as a game in which Link makes up the world in his head, as it is a dream, but then,…

For a game so…

For fans though, Zelda‘s story has been a hotly contested topic even before the controversial introduction of the timeline. Today, we’re debating two…

Link’s Awakening is among one of the most unique and creative entries in the series. Taking place within a dream, Link faces a moral dilemma in his journey to escape the island. If he wakes up the Wind Fish, he threatens to destroy the existence of the entire island and everyone on it, including the endearing Marin, and the ending of the game is rather unclear on what exactly happens, leaving it open for interpretation. After Link’s dream ends, he…
