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!
