The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds Items Upgrades Guide

Zelda Link Between Worlds
The latest Legend of Zelda game has just been released a day or two ago, called ‘A Link Between Worlds’. It’ll be coming to Japan on December 26th and is the second retail game in the series that is available on the Nintendo 3DS, right after Ocarina of Time 3D.

The game chronologically takes place between Link’s Awakening and The Legend of Zelda, six generations after the events of A Link to the Past. This is also a different version of Link, which makes sense as that incarnation of the hero would have died long ago.

Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds Items Upgrades

As in all Legend of Zelda games, Link will eventually come across the master sword, but unlike many of the other games, this time he can upgrade it, as well as many of the other items in his possession.

You can do this in various ways but it mostly involves you taking a certain item and the tool in question to a certain NPC and paying them to upgrade the item.

Here is the list of the upgradeable items, as well as the process by which you can improve them:
