Shadow Link can stalk Link’s Awakening Chamber Dungeons with amiibo

Shadow Link

The remake of The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening is coming out soon. At this point, its fairly safe to say that this is a straightforward remake, with the only major content change so far being the Chamber Dungeons. Nintendo of Europe has tweeted a new tidbit about the feature. Shadow Link will be added to your Chamber Dungeon through the use of the Link’s Awakening Link amiibo.

The Chamber Dungeons are the new addition that allows you to make your own custom Zelda dungeons. By adding Shadow Link, the entity will stalk you through the Chamber Dungeon, attacking at every opportunity. When defeated, he will drop a large number of Rupees.

Shadow Link, or in this case Link’s Shadow, was first introduced in Link’s Adventure as the final boss. He would then appear as Dark Link in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time as the only good part of the infamous Water Temple. Since, Shadow Link, or whatever they decided to call him at the time, has appeared in a smattering of Zelda games and has become a fan favorite. He’s even a color variant of all three Links in Super Smash Bros Ultimate.

While this feature is amiibo-exclusive, its nice knowing that we’re getting a bit more in the remake. The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening comes out for the Switch on Sept. 20. Are you planning on grabbing the new Link amiibo for Shadow Link? Or are you just a collector? Let us know in the comments.
