The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening Original Soundtrack gets a new promo video

A fantastic soundtrack

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening Original Soundtrack launches in Japan today, and to celebrate the occasion, Nintendo has put out a new promo video to showcase what's in the set. Unfortunately, there are no plans to release this soundtrack outside of Japan, so fans looking to scoop one up will have to import. Thankfully Play-Asia makes that very easy to do!

Dr. Kawashima himself checks out Dr Kawashima’s Brain Training for Switch, talks about the other Switch games he's played

The doctor is a big Switch fan!

The good doctor himself, Dr. Kawashima, has been featured in an interview on Nintendo's official Japanese website. They had Dr. Kawashima come in and give Dr. Kawashima's Brain Training for Switch a shot, and also talked to him about his gaming outside of his own series of titles.

Turns out Dr. Kawashima is quite the Switch fan! He says he's mastered all the shrines in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and has recently started playing Splatoon 2. He also played and finished The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, which took him roughly 3 weeks to complete.

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening gets its "YAHOO!" back

Yahoo!

Here's a small bit of Legend of Zelda trivia for you. Back with the original release of The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening on the Game Boy and Game Boy Color, there was one old lady character who spouted "YAHOO!" has her catchphrase. When we got to the 3DS VC release of the game, Nintendo had yanked the "YAHOO!" and changed it to "HELLO!" and other words. This is probably because Nintendo was worried about the Yahoo! web service provider taking issue with the word due to their trademark.

Well, even if that was the issue, Nintendo has decided that they're good to go with the use of "YAHOO!" again. The old lady character has had her "YAHOO!" exclamation added back in for The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening on Switch. A small change, but nice to see the game come full circle.

Nintendo uses The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to promote The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening

Link of the Wild

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was the next big evolution for the Zelda series. Many players who've never touched a Zelda game jumped in on the game, and Nintendo is hoping to convert them into multi-game Zelda fans. That's why their latest Twitter advertisement ties Breath of the Wild to Link's Awakening. I'm not too sure the cross-promotion will work, but hopefully a few people will be wooed!
