Link's Awakening DX VWF version

Hack of The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX

Description:

This hack gives Link’s Awakening the love it deserves by introducing a beautiful VWF that makes the text much more readable. All the text is adapted to fit the space freed by the new font.

It also removes the spaces at the end of the player’s name (if any) and fixes a couple of typos.

ROM / ISO Information:

  • No-Intro Name: Legend of Zelda, The - Link's Awakening DX (USA, Europe) (Rev B) (SGB Enhanced)
  • (No-Intro version 20130730-054825)

Much better font for an already great game!

Reviewed By: phantom_with_a_rose on 24 Feb 2019

While ‘Link’s Awakening’ is still a great game, overall, I’ve never cared for the Italics font the game developers used for it. Compared to the font used in the Oracle games, it just seemed to stick out like a sore thumb and just felt unfitting, especially for a Zelda title. This Variable Width Font patch makes the text more appealing on the eyes and feels natural than the ugly Italics font used in the original. The only part that still remains in Italics is the file select screen, but this is very minor since the rest of the text is in VWF. I replayed through LA with this patch from beginning to end and found no errors in the script whatsoever (and yes, I also used the 1.2 version of the rom). Many thanks to toruzz for making this!
