|Tips||When recalling the 13th memory, Link's recall motion is different if he took a picture propped up in the Impa's house with Camera or if he did not take a picture.|
If you did not take a picture, he will look around and recall a little differently than usual, so if you want to see a different way of remembering, do not take a picture with Camera.
Captured Memories Overview
Get Hints From Pikango In Various Places
Camera does not display the location even if you set the destination of the Main Quest, and there is no way to find it yourself. However, you can get a rough hint of the location by talking to Pikango in various places such as Stables.
Requires Find The Fairy Fountain To Be Completed
In order to be able to receive hints from Pikango, you must have completed the Main Quest called "Find the Fairy Fountain". This is the Main Quest that can be accomplished as soon as the Captured Memories mission is unlocked, so let's complete it.Find The Fairy Fountain
The Order In Which Cameras Are Collected Does Not Matter
There are 13 types of Camera to look for. Twelve of them are stored in Camera from the beginning and can be started from any of them. The order in which you find them will not affect the story in the future, so it doesn't matter which one you go to find them.
A Ring Of Light Will Appear As You Approach The Location
When you approach the place where Link's memory is located, a circle of light appears.
Collect Any One Of Them And Get A Champion's Tunic
Finding one of these will update the quest and allow you to report it to Impa. Talk to Impa in Kakariko Village to receive the Champion's Tunic!
You Get The 13th Memory After Collecting The Other 12
If you collect 12 cameras that have been unlocked from the beginning and report them to Impa, you will be informed that there is a final camera. Take note that there is no point in going to the 13th place before you have collected all 12 Memories.
An Ending Will Be Added If You Collect 13 Cards
There's an additional ending when all 13 Memories are collected.Instead of a branching ending, it only adds a scene to the ending, which can be seen as a conventional ending.
You Can Rewatch The Ending Scene Again From Adventure Log
cutscenes that can be seen in various parts of camera can be viewed again from "Remembered memories" in Adventure Log. Check it out if you want to reread the story.
