Link, after battling the evil in Hyrule, sets off in a ship for a journey. His ship is caught in a terrible storm and he is shipwrecked on a mysterious island. Evil once again finds Link, and he is forced to battle his way through the dungeons of Koholint Island. Replacing Princess Zelda as the maiden in this episode is Marin, a native island girl. Once Link defeats all the mini-dungeons, he sets forth for the final boss of the game, and then he learns the truth about Koholint. Written by

Did You Know?
There is much speculation over the chronological order of the Zelda storyline, so although Link's Awakening is the fourth Zelda game, it is unknown when the events in it occur. Many agree that it probably takes place directly after A Link to the Past, although one theory suggests it takes place in the middle of The Adventure of Link (while Link is sailing to the east continent).
