The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX

aka: Zelda no Densetsu: Yume wo Miru Shima DX

Description official descriptions

This game is a color-enhanced update to Link's Awakening. The game is also compatible with the original Game Boy.

This is virtually the same game as the original with a few exceptions. There are photo points around the game where Link can get his photo taken and then print it out on the Game Boy Printer.

Also when played on the Game Boy Color, there is a new secret color-themed dungeon.

Differences to the original

In the original version, during the optional trading quest line, the mermaid lost her bikini top- in this version, it is a pearl necklace. Along with that a few sleazy remarks were removed, e.g. when the player dives before the topless mermaid (at least in the German version, a few other sleazy text passages unrelated to the mermaid were also removed). The references to the painter's model being a nude model were also removed. A detailed list of changes can be found on schnittberichte.com (German).
