If you tuned into Nintendo's Treehouse Live Broadcast following the big E3 2019 Direct presentation, you likely saw the same segment we did highlighting upcoming September release, The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening.
While there was a lot revealed about this Switch title in the half-hour demo, one of the more interesting titbits of information was regarding the return of the Color Dungeon from the DX version of Link's Awakening and also the introduction of the Chamber Dungeon.
To cut to the chase, the Color Dungeon is back! Even if it doesn't have quite the same impact as it did back in 1998, it's there. What's reassuring, as the Nintendo Treehouse crew explained, is the fact all of the DX content is represented in this newer version of Link's Awakening. If you're not familiar with the original Color Dungeon, it required players to solve color-puzzles and made special use of the Game Boy Color at the time.
Interestingly, the Switch release will also include the new Chamber Dungeon. This dungeon is a building that actually replaces the original Camera Shop that was located in Tal Tal Heights (first featured in Link's Awakening DX). You could take photos throughout Koholint Island and then return to this shop to print them out or view on the Game Boy Printer accessory.
Instead of this, the building has now been replaced by the Chamber Dungeon, run by Dampé, who you might remember as the graveyard keeper from the 1998 Nintendo 64 release, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. It's also worth noting Dampé was not featured in the original Link's Awakening games. The Chamber Dungeon itself will allow you to create challenging custom dungeons.
