Sound Test

typing in とたけけ in the Japanese version of Link's Awakening, or MOYSE in the German version of Link's Awakening DX will prompt for Totaka's Song to play instead of the regular file select music

Kazumi Totaka is a composer/sound engineer for Nintendo and was the sound director / engineer for Link's Awakening. A lot of games he worked on has a 19 note melody as an easter egg hidden away, aptly named "Totaka's Song"

Mario Paint and Animal Crossing also feature this melody (AC has this as K.K. Song)
