The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX premiered yesterday as the Nintendo 3DS eShop's first Game Boy Color title, and If you want to brush up on the game before you make a purchase...this video is absolutely not what you want to watch. In this playthrough series, author MeccaPrime shatters Link's Awakening into a million tiny pieces and rebuilds it to be a stronger, meaner, stranger game than it was before.

Link's Awakening's original cartridge release is fairly notorious for shipping with a large number of bugs and glitches. Many (but not all) of these issues were fixed in later revisions and in the Game Boy Color upgrade Link's Awakening DX, but the original monochrome edition could be sequence-broken to hell and back, with entertaining results.

MeccaPrime recommends that viewers have prior experience with Link's Awakening in order to get the most out of his video series. He's right -- much of the playthrough is otherwise nonsensical, and possibly even frightening. You've been warned.
