Link's Awakening Sword and Shield Locations

If you have jumped into this classic not knowing what it was originally about and what to do, you might have a hard time figuring out where to find your Link’s Sword and Shield. Your Shield is easy to find and is nearby when Link wakes up. Once you have the Shield you can go get your Sword and off to battle you go. Our Zelda: Link’s Awakening Sword and Shield locations guide will discuss where to your shield and sword.

Zelda: Link’s Awakening Sword and Shield Locations

This section of the guide will discuss the location of your sword and shield. These two items are crucial to your progress in the game. Without your sword and shield, you can not progress in The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening.

Link’s Shield Location – When you wake up you can find the Link’s Shield but first you must speak with Marin. Speaking with Marin will give you a general location of your sword. Now, talk to Marin’s father to get your shield.

Link’s Sword Location – Now that you have the Shield it is time to go after Link’s Sword. At this point you already spoke with Tarin to get the first location you must visit. Head to Mabe Village to the left, on your leftmost side you will find a library with button tutorials. From this point head down.

Go down the ledges heading south until you get to the Toronbo Shores. Look for sand and a few Octoroks and Sea Urchins to know that you are in the right place. Octorocks and Sea Urchins will attack and since you don’t have your Sword yet, use your shield to defend yourself. You may also find yourself facing a few Leevers but you can jump to avoid these. Reach the shoreline and keep moving until you reach your sword just off the beach.

There is a twist here as well; right before you claim the sword an owl will appear to tell you where to go next.
