To find his way home, our brave hero must seek out magical instruments across the land to awaken the slumbering Wind Fish.

The locals of Koholint might seem pretty odd, but they’re a friendly bunch who’ll aid Link’s quest. Let’s get to know some of them!

Marin

A song-loving girl from Mabe Village who nurses Link back to health after he washes up on Koholint Island.

Listen to "Ballad of the Wind Fish"

NSwitch_ZeldaLinksAwakening_Char_Tarin.png

Tarin

A kind-hearted chap with a fondness for mushrooms and an insatiable appetite to boot!

NSwitch_ZeldaLinksAwakening_Char_Owl.png

Owl

A wise old bird with no shortage of advice to impart. Be sure to listen to what he has to say!

NSwitch_ZeldaLinksAwakening_Char_OldMan.png

Old Man Ulrira

No one knows the island quite like Ulrira. He’s a tad shy in person though, so give him a phone call if you need some guidance.

NSwitch_ZeldaLinksAwakening_Char_Madam.png

Madam MeowMeow

This madam is a fan of…Chain Chomps?! How strange. Hmm, well, this one is called BowWow and is harmless…apparently!

NSwitch_ZeldaLinksAwakening_Char_Dampe.png

Dampé

No one loves digging stuff up more than Dampé, and it looks like he’s made quite the discovery! Wanna see?

Link’s quest to wake up the Wind Fish will see him trek to numerous dungeons scattered across the island. Navigate these labyrinths room-by-room, solving perplexing puzzles, outwitting tricky traps, and battling the fearsome monsters that dwell within.

Is that…a Goomba? That round character looks kinda familiar too! This island certainly is full of surprises….

By collecting gear and items on his travels, Link can explore more of the island and unearth its many secrets. Certain items can even be exchanged with the locals.

Here are just some of the island’s unique tools and treasures:

During your adventures, Link will acquire mystical items called “Chamber Stones” that can be arranged into custom layouts to form Chamber Dungeons!

Mix and match different chambers to your hearts content: place an entrance, add some puzzles, keys, boss battles, and everything in-between. Once your Chamber Dungeon is complete, try to conquer it and reap the rewards within!

If you have an amiibo (sold separately) from The Legend of Zelda series, you can unlock additional chambers and save your favourite layouts to them for safe keeping. There’s also this adorable Link amiibo launching alongside the game that unlocks Shadow Link as a foe in your Chamber Dungeons!
