Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening takes place in Koholint Island, where Link is washed ashore at the very start of the game. It is up to the player to find out the island’s secrets and help Link find a way back home to Hyrule.
Link’s Awakening is not an open-world game, it is a story-driven dungeon conquering adventure! But do not be mistaken, there is a certain freedom in the game for sure. And probably the greatest expression of that notion is the ability to make unique dungeons that will not fail to surprise you.
The general unofficial consensus is 16. There are only a few confirmed ages for Link between different iteration of the series, therefore the fans of the franchise can only guess. The very first game of Legend of Zelda puts Link at 12 years old, and the most mature the hero ever got to be was 17 and six months. Therefore, all the games should take place in-between these margins.
There is deep and complicated history concerning Link, Zelda and the whole history of Hyrule. Here you’ll find a rebirth, time travel and other fun adventures and it is our recommendation to experience it all by yourself! But in the simplest terms, yes – the hero (Link), the goddess (Zelda) and the enemy (Ganon) will always circle each other in every reincarnation. But it is safe to say that several games being lumped together in a sort-of sage that serves to expand on similar plots.
