Episode 6

Episode 32 - The Legend of Zelda - Link's Awakening

Look!  Up in the sky!  It's a bird!  It's a plane!  No, it's... it's... a giant multi-colored, winged whale with a kaleidoscopic paisley pattern all over it, that's for some reason named the Wind Fish!  Come on, how could you not see that?


For this one, we're headed back all the way to the GameBoy, and checking in on everyone's favorite green-robed (in the COLOR version), pointy-hatted, jar-smashing, rupee-stealing hero, LINK!  He's in need of some awakening, and who better to do it than Chris and Katie?  Nobody, that's who!  Katie on some retro-OG hardware (the new Nintendo Game & Watch), Chris trying out the remaster on Switch.  Time to go to... NOT Hyrule, but rather Koholint Island, and try to save the world, yet again!


Time to collect some instruments, play some music, fight some bosses, crack some eggs, meet up with a whale-fish, and in general, just Link the heck out of this thing!
