Link's Awakening Redux

Hack of The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX

Description:

Link’s Awakening Redux is a hack that commemorates the release of the Link’s Awakening Remake, combining three of the most essential improvement hacks out there, and also implementing full uncensorship for Link’s Awakening DX to make the experience of the game much more enjoyable and without the annoyances of the original.

So what does this hack do specifically?

  • Sprite and text uncensoring by ShadowOne333:
    • Sprites that were censored from the Japanese release have been restored
    • Text previously censored and related to the censored sprites has been restored as well
  • Link’s Awakening DX VWF by toruzz:
    • Introduces a Variable Width Font (VWF) that makes the text much more readable
    • All the text is adapted to fit the space freed by the new font
    • Removes the spaces at the end of the player’s name (if any) and fixes a couple of typos from the original game
  • Photo Album Translation by vince94:
    • Translation of the previously-untranslated Japanese present in the Photo Album
    • Optional patch included that removes the Photo Album overlays, to have a clean image of each photograph
  • Quality of Life Improvements by IcePenguin:
    • No more text when you touch certain objects. Rocks, cracked rocks, pots, ice blocks, etc.
    • Guardian Acorns and Pieces of Power are quick pickups. No more long text interrupting game play
    • No more low health beeping

ROM / ISO Information:

  • File Name: Legend of Zelda, The - Link's Awakening DX (U) (V1.2) [C][!]
  • No-Intro Name: Legend of Zelda, The - Link's Awakening DX (USA, Europe) (Rev B) (SGB Enhanced)

User Review Information

Great complilation

Reviewed By: CountBuggula on 07 Oct 2019

I’ve used all the individual hacks here for a long time together, but was never able to get them to play completely nicely and had some garbled text issues. Great work here on getting this all in one easy hack so we can have all the QoL improvements without any nasty side-effects! I’ve already played through the dungeon 6 and am happy to report no issues or problems at all. Highly recommended as the new default way anyone would enjoy this classic.
