Otafu Susume 10 – My Wife’s Awakening (Links Awakening)

“Zelda games, they’re all the same.”
“…Excuse me?!”

 Wes, an avid fan of Zelda games (who’s played them since he was…Link-height) has his wife Jenn (who was brought up on the PlayStation, boooo) play The Legend of Zelda: Links Awakening.

They discuss differences between the classic GameBoy version with the modern Switch remake. Not just feature changes but also some interesting translation choices between the Japanese and English.

Followed by a general discussion on modern video games vs old, and the trend of remakes and emulating old games.
