Released earlier this year, in June 2011, Link’s Awakening DX has become 2011’s best-selling virtual console game in North America and Europe. It’s a pretty amazing feat, considering all of the competition the game had.

The game is also the second biggest seller ever in the eShop, behind 3D Classics: Excitebike.

What do you think of this game? Is it worth it enough to be such a high seller? Let us know in the comments!

    This game definately deserves to be in that place! It’s such a great game!

  • I'm not surprised for a game that's highly acclaimed most everywhere I've been, let alone a Zelda title.

    Considering it's my second favorite Zelda title ever (and therefore one of my top games period), yeah, I'd say it deserves it! The second game I bought for my 3DS, right after OoT3D, my favorite Zelda title. It was so nice to play it again, and in color, no less – my brother sold our old Gameboy over a decade ago, and I hadn't had a chance to play it since.

  • Considering that Link's Awakening is one of the best Handheld Zelda games in my opinion, it's no surprise really.

    I didn't end up buying it because I still have it on my Gameboy Pocket. 😀

    My Favorite Games…
    1) Majora's Mask
    2) Link's Awakening

    Think about how much MM 3ds would sell! Please do make! Just caught a few minutes to start playing Links Awakening on the 3ds, all I did was find the sword before I had to stop but the nostalgia hit me pretty hard.
