About

Kaeru no Tame ni Kane wa Naru (カエルの為に鐘は鳴る, lit. "For Frog the Bell Tolls") is an action role-playing video game developed by "Team Shikamaru" of Nintendo's Research and Development 1 division, in cooperation with the external company Intelligent Systems. It was published by Nintendo for the Game Boy and released in Japan on September 4, 1992. The title is a play on John Donne's Devotions upon Emergent Occasions, For Whom the Bell Tolls, which is itself an allusion to John Donne's famous Meditation XVII.

In 2011, an English fan translation was released.

The game has been referred to in English as The Frog for Whom the Bell Tolls by Masahiro Sakurai during development of Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U.

The game engine was reused for The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening.
