link's-awakening

Its dangerous to go alone…

This is one of the prints that were available at Anime North that I forgot to upload. Had a lot of fun incorporating all of the Links. Can you recognize them all?

Someone mentioned an emulator called GBE+ a while ago which allows you to replace the sprites in gameboy games. the tools aren’t very good however; it was a pain to set up and i couldn’t get it working at all.

so i gave up trying to get anything running in game and did some mock ups in photoshop of what HD Link’s Awakening might look like instead.

If Link’s Awakening were made today ⊟

It would probably have more colors than green, though! The re-imagined screenshot comes from Jonatan Iversen-Ejve, who illustrated this for Swedish magazine LEVEL (via gamover mx981). I’m not too enamored with the art style in Iversen-Ejve’s version – it seems a bit too Triple Towns-ish to me – but I’d welcome a remake for Link’s Awakening.

If Nintendo was able to transform the second-best Zelda into the wonderful, modern masterpiece that was A Link Between Worlds, just think what the company could do with the series best entry.
