During today’s Nintendo Direct, Nintendo announced four new Amiibos dedicated to the Legend of Zelda series. These four new Amiibo figures will join the Breath of the Wild line already announced to significantly bolster the number of figures dedicated to the Legend of Zelda series.
The four new figures highlight some of the most beloved adventures that Link and Zelda have embarked on. The 8-bit Link Amiibo borrows the style of Link’s debut adventure in Legend of Zelda on the NES, while the new Link Amiibo pays tribute to Ocarina of Time on Nintendo 64. Nintendo also revealed a two-pack of Amiibos that feature Toon Link and Toon Zelda as they appeared in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker on GameCube (and later on Wii U through the HD version).
The figures function like their standard versions – 8-bit Link and Ocarina of Time Link function the same as the standard Link Amiibo, while the new Toon Link functions like the original Toon Link Amiibo and Toon Zelda functions like the standard Zelda Amiibo. However, Nintendo was sure to mention that these figures will have special functionality in the highly anticipated Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
The 8-bit Link, Ocarina of Time Link, and the Toon Link/Toon Zelda two-pack are set to release December 2.
