The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening

Summary

Link’s Awakening is playable. Performance may struggle in demanding areas.

Issues

  • Using OpenGL API, tall grass and tree models have black flickering, depth of field (aka blurriness) is incorrectly rendered causing the whole screen blurred, which can be fixed by using this mod patch. Turing series GPUs (GTX 16XX - RTX 20XX series) have some rendering issues.
    The Vulkan renderer fixes most of the rendering issues (such as no black flickering, transparent water, accurate lightning, working depth of field). However, yuzu sometimes crashes, and this occurs frequently when entering Manbo’s Pond. Switch to OpenGL in order to bypass this problem.

Game-Specific Configuration

Controller configuration: Single Player - Dual Joycons - Docked or Custom Profile/Pro Controller + Docked Mode
