The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, is a 1993 action-adventure video game. It is the fourth installment in the The Legend of Zelda series, and the first for a handheld game console.

Link's Awakening began as a port of the Super Nintendo title The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, grew into an original project under the direction of Takashi Tezuka, with a story and script created by Yoshiaki Koizumi and Kensuke Tanabe. It is one of the few Zelda games not to take place in the land of Hyrule, and does not feature Princess Zelda or the Triforce relic. Instead, protagonist Link begins the game stranded on Koholint Island, a place guarded by a creature called the Wind Fish. Assuming the role of Link, the player fights monsters and solves puzzles while searching for eight musical instruments that will awaken the sleeping Wind Fish and allow him to escape from the island.

Critics praised the game's depth and number of features; complaints focused on its control scheme and monochrome graphics. A remake titled The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX was released for the Game Boy Color in 1998 featuring color graphics, compatibility with the Game Boy Printer, and an exclusive color-based dungeon. Together, the two versions of the game have sold more than six million units worldwide, and have appeared on multiple game publications' lists of the best games of all time.
