You could always break out your old GameBoy to play this bad boy!

If, like us, you were excited for the re-release of Link’s Awakening on the 3DS, then we’re sure disapointment struck as you read the title of this post. Indeed, it has been confirmed in a press release from Nintendo of America, that Link’s Awakening will not be available to purchase at the launch of the eShop, released in the 3DS update on June 06th.

It was believed that Link’s Awakening would be available as a launch title for the 3DS eShop. Alas, Nintendo is still yet to even confirm a release date for the title, and there is yet to be word on whether there will be any upgrades to this old gem of a game. On the lighter side, for those of you who do own a 3DS, you can be sure that the update on June 06th is still happening and you will be getting the 3DS web browser and eShop.

What do you think about this delay of the re-release of Link’s Awakening? Leave your thoughts in a comment below!

    Hope it's late because Nintendo is spending its every waking moment making Skyward Sword awesome.

    Calm down It'll release Eventualy, but realy as not only gamers but Zelda fans, we should be built to not only be prepared, but expect delays. it happens, but realy wold you realy want the thing to be ported to the eShop full of bugs?

    Because I suspect there's more than a wee bit of codeing to be done, what with button config and 3D ifying the images like they mentioned.

  • TwilightPianist

    well considering this is the only Zelda game I haven't played. I'm a bit dissapointed but then again I still need to get the 3DS before complaining XD

  • Guill.

    I don't mind the later date for the game since I don't have a 3DS yet. But I do want it there eventually. I just don't want any changes in the game at all. The change from original to DX was enough. Hope they won't make any other alterations to it.

  • fuck up

    • zeldafan4040

      Wow, really? " Nintendo can really catch a disease after this " ?? You have got issues, my friend!

  • Bamboozle

    Wow, to the poster above me. Chill out. With OOT comming out soon and Skyward Sword being worked on it definatly is not surprising that they would not have Link's Awakening released this early.

  • Subrosian

    Haha… I still have my LA DX cartridge and a GBA SP, along with both Oracle games, so… I'm not disappointed???

  • Huh, looks like the update isnt even gonna BE june 6th.
