Zelda Link's Awakening Amiibo - How to Use and Scan Amiibo

Zelda Link's Awakening Amiibo - How to Use and Scan Amiibo

Here's how to scan and use Amiibo in The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening on Switch.

Just like any other first-party game on the Nintendo Switch, you can use Amiibo with The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening. In this Zelda Link's Awakening Amiibo guide, we'll be walking you through how to use your Amiibo with the game, because there's only one specific location on Koholint Island where you can scan in your Amiibo.

Zelda Link's Awakening: How to Use Amiibo

When you first wake up as Link after washing up on the shores of Koholint Island, you're in Mabe Village. Unfortunately for you, there's a fair bit of a journey to go before you can actually start using your Amiibo in Link's Awakening. Below, you can find a list of all the major stages of the game you need to complete before you can start using your Amiibo.

When you get to Mabe Village after beating Bottle Grotto, you're looking for the character pictured below. He's called Dampe, and it's through this NPC that Link can unlock not only the Dungeon Builder feature in Link's Awakening, but also use Amiibo in conjunction with the new feature.

Speak to Dampe, and he'll tell you to meet him back at his shack, since you've apparently cleared your schedule (you definitely haven't). Dampe's shack can be found by going through the Mysterious Woods, and then heading east and slightly north, to the northeast reaches of Koholint Prairie.

Once you've reached Dampe's shack, you can enter and speak to him. Select the 'Amiibo' option when asked what you want, and then opt for the 'Get special chamber' option to scan in Amiibo. Below, we've compiled a list of the in-game rewards for all corresponding Zelda Amiibo.
