E3 2019 - How Zelda: Link's Awakening's Dungeon Maker Mode Works

Recommended Posts


Nintendo showcased much more of The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening remake during its E3 2019 presentation. While the game looks largely like a faithful reimagining of the classic Game Boy adventure, we learned it will introduce at least one major new feature, a dungeon creator, and we got a glimpse of how that will work during a Treehouse livestream demo.

The dungeon creator feature is accessed from the Chamber Dungeon, a new location in Tal Tal Heights that replaces the Camera Shop from the DX version of Link's Awakening. When you clear a dungeon during the course of your adventure, you'll earn rooms from it (known in-game as Chambers) with which you'll then be able to create your own custom dungeons.

It doesn't appear you'll be able to customize the contents of these Chambers--it seems each is lifted straight from the game's existing dungeons--but you'll be able to rearrange the placement of the rooms in almost any order you please, provided you meet some basic requirements; for example, each dungeon will need to have an entrance, as well as a boss room, and all of the doorways within the dungeon must be connected to another doorway.

Series producer Eiji Aonuma shed a bit more light on the new Chamber Dungeon feature during the Treehouse demo. "I've always wanted to create a way for players to create their own dungeons, but I didn't want to make it anything too hard," he explained through an interpreter. "Just like solving a puzzle, I wanted to make this Chamber Dungeon easy enough for people to play and feel like they're solving a puzzle."

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening launches for Nintendo Switch on September 20. In North America, the game will release in standard and Dreamer editions, the latter of which includes a hardcover art book. In Europe, however, players will be able to pick up an extravagant Limited edition, which comes with an art book as well as a steelbook case that resembles an original Game Boy. You can read more in our Link's Awakening pre-order guide.

Nintendo is also releasing a new Link's Awakening Amiibo alongside the game. When scanned into the game, the figure will add a "plus effect" to the Chamber Dungeon. As Nintendo explained, these plus effects "are layered on top of the Chambers and add a new gameplay variant." The Link's Awakening Amiibo in particular will add Shadow Link, who'll chase you throughout the dungeon. The game will also be compatible with any previous Zelda Amiibo figures, which can unlock additional Chambers.

That wasn't the only big Zelda news to emerge from Nintendo's E3 Direct. The company also announced a sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is in development for Switch. Nintendo shared an eerie teaser trailer for it to close out the Direct; you can read our trailer breakdown and theories here. The Zelda spin-off Cadence of Hyrule also released on the Switch Eshop this week.
