Zelda: Link's Awakening Heart Piece Guide: All Locations

Recommended Posts


The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening remake is finally out, allowing a new generation of players to experience a classic Nintendo game with a fresh coat of paint. The graphics aren't the only new addition, though, as the remake implements several quality-of-life improvements and new collectibles to discover--including more heart pieces.

For those new to Zelda, heart pieces are collectibles seen in most games in the series that allow you to earn a larger health pool for Link. Finding one won't cut it, though. As these collectibles are pieces of heart, you need to find a set number to complete a full heart and add on to Link's health. Games have fluctuated between needing four or five pieces, with Link's Awakening falling into the former camp.

In the original 1993 Link's Awakening, there were 12 heart pieces to discover. There are 32 in this remake, so you've got your work cut out for you even if you've played Link's Awakening before. If you're having trouble hunting down the pieces, check out the map embedded below. It marks the location of all 32.

For those whose entire Zelda experience begins and ends with Breath of the Wild, keep in mind that only a few games in the franchise actually allow you to tackle the content in any direction you want. From 1991's A Link to the Past to 2011's Skyward Sword, the Zelda games--including Link's Awakening--are very linear. So you will not be able to grab all the heart pieces right from the get-go because you will need to unlock certain items to solve specific puzzles to earn a few of the pieces. To help you out, the heart pieces on our map are numbered in the order they can be acquired.

In GameSpot's The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening review, Peter Brown wrote, "Though the remake has a couple of blemishes, it's still an easy game to recommend. People speak of Link's Awakening as the secret best Zelda game. That's a tough call to make, but it's definitely one of the best. If you haven't touched a classic Zelda game in a while, Link's Awakening will almost instantly transport you back to the '90s. It's simple, in many ways, but the orchestrated journey still conveys a sense of adventure, and this new version is without question the best way to experience it. And more than anything else, it will put a smile on your face. Remakes are a dime a dozen nowadays and often easy to overlook. Don't make that mistake with Link's Awakening."
