The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening gets insane fan mod with full map view

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening

Some enterprising The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening fans have essentially remastered the best game in the series, making it playable in HD and with its world map in full view.

The new and free fan project, cutely titled Link’s Awakening DX HD, was just released and lets fans play the game at 1:1 scale (shown above), with 120FPS support and the entire world living and breathing.

If playing Link’s Awakening at 1:1 scale and playing Where’s Waldo with Link is a bit too much, you can scale it down to a more modest ultrawide (oh yes it supports ultrawide too) view, like so:

Here’s a rundown on the new mod and release, plus a teaser trailer:
