The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening DX is an enhanced Game Boy Color port of the Game Boy game The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening. Link is caught in a storm at sea and becomes shipwrecked. Awaking on the mysterious island of Koholint, he discovers the only way to leave the island is to wake the Wind Fish, a creature which sleeps endlessly until the Eight Instruments of the Sirens are played in front of the egg in which it sleeps. The game is updated with colored graphics, although the gameplay and story remain mostly the same.

A few features were added, however, including a new dungeon that takes advantage of the color and a Photographer that takes pictures throughout Link’s adventure. After a shipwreck, Link finds himself lying on the beach of Koholint island, a strange land which lies in the shadow of a great egg which lies in the island mountain range known as Tal Tal Heights. A local of the island’s village, named Marin, discovers link and takes him to her house. When he awakes, another local man, named Tarin, gives Link his shield back. Using this, Link returns to the beach and recovers his sword.

It is here he comes into contact an owl (who greatly resembles Kaepora Gaebora from Ocarina of time, the game following Link’s Awakening) who shall act as his guide on the Island. With sword in hand, Link makes his way to the mysterious forest to find the Tail Key. After dealing with a shape-shifted Tarin, Link gains access to Tail Cave. After defeating the creatures inside Tail Cave, including a giant Moldorm, Link receives his first instrument- the ‘Full Moon Cello’. With the complete set of instruments, Link would be able to wake the Wind Fish and leave the Island. Kaepora Gaebora tells Link the location of each instrument as he needs to.
