Pieces of Heart are collectibles in The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds and previous games of the franchise.
Fans and followers of the series will know the importance of these items, and that investing time in finding all of them is a worthwhile task. Same is true for A Link Between Worlds, which has 28 pieces of Heart in total.
After collecting four pieces of Hearts, you get a new Heart Container which gives one new heart to your health. It never hurts to have plenty of health, so this collectible is a great way to beef up Link. Since there are 28 pieces of heart, you can gain seven additional hearts to your health by finding all of them.
