[[|]] has more information on this game:
{{|The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX|Read it now!}}

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX is a The Legend of Zelda series game for Game Boy Color, and an enhancement/remake of The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening.



Other than improved color graphics, a special Color Dungeon for winning tunics and a photo-printing character was added to the game. The photo-printing character can be used to print with the Game Boy Printer.

Release data[edit]

The Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console revision of the game features some minor changes to the text, and changes in screen flashes (likely to address those with photosensitive epilepsy). The Game Boy Printer options are also disabled, making it impossible to print the photos.
