The Legend Of Zelda: Link’s Awakening Totaka’s Song Trick Is Still In The Remake




In the original version of The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, there were some fun Easter eggs people could trigger on the screen where they would enter their character’s name. Putting certain names could cause certain songs to play. In the Japanese version, people could hear “Totaka’s Song,” a song written by Nintendo composer Kazumi Totaka, by entering the name “とたけけ.” Now, it turns out the new version of the game has this same Easter egg. (Thanks, GameXplain!)


Two The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening Easter eggs have to do with your character name. If someone enters “totakeke” as a name, then “Totaka’s Song” will play. If you enter “zelda” as your name, then you will hear a remixed version of the main theme.


Here is the video showing both Easter eggs in action and explaining them. It also confirms that “Totaka’s Song” still plays in Richard’s house.



The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening will come to the Nintendo Switch on September 20, 2019.
