“The Wind Fish sleeps long and dreamily in the Egg above…”
In the fourth of this mammoth run of podcasts featuring Nintendo’s eternal hero we are washed ashore on the dream island of Koholint in The Legend of Zelda; Link’s Awakening. Leon and an all-USA panel of Ryan, Sean and Leah Haydu thoroughly explore Takashi Tezuka’s much-loved fan project pocket marvel, supported as ever by Guardian Acorns from the forum and Pieces of Power from Twitter. The black and white (off-green and grey) 1993 original gets discussed although the 1998 Game Boy Color DX version is the focus.*
*With apologies for the somewhat troublesome audio at times folks, unforeseen technical issues.
Music used in this issue:
1: The Storm by Kazumi Totaka / Minako Hamano / Kozue Ishikawa
2: Ballad of the Wind Fish by Kazumi Totaka / Minako Hamano / Kozue Ishikawa
