  5. "I remember that we made Link’s Awakening in a really peculiar frame of mind. We began in the free spirit of an afterschool club, so the contents are quite unrestrained. If you look at it, you can tell. Characters similar to Mario and Luigi appear and Yoshi Dolls appear, too." —Takashi Tezuka (Iwata Asks - Zelda Handheld History (2. Kirby and Chomps in Zelda))
