Phantom Hourglass can go away if you combine both versions of Link's Awakening .



Around the Network

1988
Not that interesting of a year. Just over one year after the NES's European release. Most stuff was only in Japan, for Westerners not much happened it seems. Because of the late and staggered release of the NES in Europe, many games were released years later than they were in Japan. It also caused the NES and to a lesser extent the SNES to have a shorter life than usual.

- Famicom Grand Prix (Japan, the precursor to Mario Kart)
- Mega Man 2 (Japan)
- Metal Gear
- Ninja Gaiden (Japan)
- Super Mario Bros. 2
- Super Mario Bros. 3 (Japan)
- Tetris (Home computer and Famicom ports of the 'real' Tetris as well as the Tengen version)
- Zelda II: The Adventure of Link

- SEGA Mega Drive (Japan)

But Link's Awakening DX isn't the Link's Awakening that released in his birth year.
