The Legend of Zelda series has a lot of iconic items that you discover on every single journey. Yet few are as important or as memorable as the bombs, which have been in every Zelda game since the NES original. That includes The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, where they actually are much more important and useful on your adventure. But to use them, you have to have enough and they can be tough to find sometimes. Here’s where to find bombs in Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening remake for Nintendo Switch.
Where to Find Bombs
As with most usable items in Link’s Awakening this question is sort of split into two parts. There’s the first time you get bombs, and all the other times when getting them simply refills your inventory. For this game they’re actually a lot easir to initially unlock, basically appearing randomly right out of the gate. Of course, there is a specific way the game seems to want you to earn your first bombs, which is to buy them from the Town Tool Shop in the middle of Mabe Village.
Going here right out of the gat will allow you to buy a set of 10 bombs for 10 rupees, which is pretty great. If you have the rupees and need to do some exploding then you should grab them. If not, you can instead find bombs randomly throughout the world, which is sort of the answer to the second part of this question, which is how to get more bombs in Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening.
Killing enemies, chopping down bushes, or in shops are the three main places where you can find bombs in the game. Perform these actions over and over whenever you need them and eventually they’ll arrive, filling your inventory and allowing you to keep adventuring around Koholint Island. And that’s where to find bombs in Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening remake for Nintendo Switch.
