Hyrule Warriors To Get Amiibo Compatibility Later This Month

By   /   Nov 6, 2014

It was revealed earlier today by Nintendo that Hyrule Warriors will receive an update later this month that will add amiibo compatibility to the popular title.

After the update, players will be able to use the Link’s amiibo figurine to unlock a new weapon from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess called “The Spinner.”

Apart from Link, Princess Zelda amiibo upon its release in December will also unlock a new weapon for Hyrule Warriors, but Nintendo didn’t reveal the weapon’s name.

Princess Zelda amiibo figurine will release alongside Captain Falcon, Luigi and Pit as a second wave of figurines.

However, Zelda and Link are the only ones that will help you get new weapons in the game. On the other hand, rest of the amiibos can be used to get new materials and in-game cash.

Hyrule Warriors made its way to Nintendo Wii U back in September and got a fairly decent reception from critics and fans alike, as they appreciated it for the fast-paced combat and Legend of Zelda series references.

The game featured a lot of fan-favorite playable characters such as Link, Impa, Zelda, Sheik, Lana, Darunia, Midna, Agitha, Ruto, Ghirahim, Zant, Fi and Ganondorf, making it a must buy for any Legend of Zelda fan.

Hyrule Warriors is out now, exclusively for Nintendo Wii U.
