The Eastern Palace is the first dungeon in A Link Between Worlds. It is the place where Osfala is captured by Yuga.

Themes and Navigation

The Eastern Palace is located in the east of Hyrule, hence its name. The dungeon entrance is located in a large structure with several statues along it. The palace shares many similarities with the previous version from A Link to the Past.

The dungeon is simple and only has three floors, and Ball traps remain a common obstacle. Entering requires using a bow and arrows to activate switches, with Ravio allowing Link to rent the items needed for free the first time he lends them. At the end of the dungeon, Yuga turns Osfala into a painting and he and Link fight. Yuga responds to his loss by turning Link into a painting, which is not long-lived as Ravio's bracelet allows Link to return to normal, after which he has the ability to merge with walls. After obtaining a Heart Container dropped by Yuga, Link uses his new ability to explore the outer walls of the dungeon.
