Twin Peaks co-creator met with Nintendo to share ideas for Zelda: Link's Awakening
That game you like is going to come back in style
We’ve known for decades now that Nintendo was inspired by, among many things, Twin Peaks when they created The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening. Nintendo’s developers have shared this fact numerous times over the years, but today we learn the connection goes even deeper.
While most know Twin Peaks as the brainchild of David Lynch, it’s just as much a creation of Mark Frost as well. Frost was involved with all three seasons of Twin Peaks, as well as the Fire Walk with Me movie. Now, thanks to a tweet from Frost himself, we know that he actually met with Nintendo over Link’s Awakening.
Frost took to Twitter to comment on a tweet detailing how Link’s Awakening was inspired by Twin Peaks. This is where we learn that Frost actually met with Nintendo to discuss ideas for Link’s Awakening! We don’t know the topics that were discussed or the length of his involvement, but this is the very first time we find out the connection goes deeper than a tribute.
Hopefully Frost shares some more insight into his discussions with Nintendo, as there’s no doubt all kinds of interesting details to glean!
