This is a page for Speedrunning Movement in The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening (Remake) for the Nintendo Switch. Read on to see various tips and information on how to move quickest during your run.
Link has a slower movement speed when walking on grass as opposed to normal land. Avoid walking on the grass unless it is required.
Jumping also slows Link down because of the short pause when landing. Only jump when necessary for a faster run.
Attacking enemies from the ground has a longer pause than attacking while jumping. Avoid enemies as much as possible, but if they cannot be avoided, kill them using jump attacks.
Swimming on the water will also change Link's movement speed, but pressing A while on the water will make Link swim faster. Spam the A button to navigate around the water quickly.
Using the Pegasus Boots and running in a straight line is the fastest way to move around the island without the warp zones. However, there is a small pause when charging the Pegasus Dash, making it inefficient if Link is only going to dash for 3 tiles or less.
