Just hours after the Nintendo E3 conference ended, the company has already announced new Amiibos for Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the upcoming latest Legend of Zelda game that promises to be more open-world and with a much larger world for players to run around in.
The Amiibos include two Amiibos of the game’s particular Link, one with Link riding a horse, one with Link using a bow, and one that takes the form of an enemy in the game known as a Guardian.
The Guardian burst onto the game’s scene when the game was first unveiled at E3 2014. Its main role in the trailer was chasing Link through the landscape. The Guardian Amiibo will also be the first Amiibo with flexible parts.
The Wolf Link Amiibo that came out with the HD version of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess will also be compatible with the game.
Using it on Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will summon Wolf Link into the game with three hearts. He will then attack enemies until he runs out of hearts.
However, the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Amiibos have not had their functions revealed to us yet. Whether putting one in gives us various items or abilities, or gives us more help like with Wolf Link, we’ll just have to see until Nintendo gives us more information about them.
Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has already made people rather excited, and the fact that it’s going to be one of the launch titles for the Nintendo NX may only make people more excited in addition to the beautiful environments. Not to mention, the possibility of kitting Link out in other outfits.
Either way the Amiibos look amazing and all three of them have a great deal of detail to them. Hopefully more Zelda Amiibos will be on the way with these.
