For the most part, the remake of The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening for Switch is not much different than the original release from 1993, aside from its updated visuals and QoL improvements. However, there are some areas where the game has been changed, including an increase in the number of secret seashells in The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening. Indeed, the original release contained just 26 secret seashells, while the remake has 50.
For those that are interested in collecting all of the secret seashells in the remake of The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, this guide looks to assist in that matter. While collecting the Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening seashells is completely optional, spending time tracking these collectibles down does come with rewards, like heart pieces, and players may thus be interested in learning the locations of all of the seashells in LoZ: LA.
The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening Seashell Locations
Players that are trying to determine the locations of all of the secret seashells in The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening should reference the video featured here. Not only does this video detail where all 50 Link's Awakening seashells can be found across Koholint Island, it shows exactly how to obtain them as well.
As demonstrated by the video, some of the Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening seashells are quite easy to locate but others must be obtained using certain items. For example, some of the LoZ: LA secret seashells can only be collected if a player has access to things like a shovel or the Pegasus Boots. Players can expect to obtain the items needed for collecting seashells throughout a standard playthrough, and earning some of these items can be made even easier by learning how to steal in The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening.
While the length of The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening main story might be quite short, there are a number of ways to get additional playtime out of the remake. Collecting all of the secret seashells in the Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening remake is one such way to prolong the experience, and hopefully this guide will assist those that may be having trouble locating all of these hidden collectibles.
The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening is out now, exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.
