The Legend of Zelda games offer Link’s Awakening has an optional way to make things tougher. If you get the game’s cute Amiibo, you can tap it to summon Shadow Link, who’ll try to murder regular Link, Nintendo of Europe revealed in a tweet., but they’re rarely very difficult. Turns out the upcoming of 1993’s
“This malevolent shadow chases Link through dungeons, so get ready to put up a fight … or run!” Nintendo of Europe wrote.
It seems like this feature is restricted to the game’s, but Shadow Link will follow you through multiple rooms and you’ll get a bunch of rupees if you take him down. It’s unclear if you’ll be able to summon this malevolent spirit without buying the plastic Amiibo figure.
The game is set for release Sept. 20 (along with the portable-only Switch Lite), so it won’t be long before you can relive the with a lovely new art style.
