Nintendo’s new amiibo figures celebrating the 30th anniversary of The Legend of Zelda officially hit stores today. Nintendo detailed how those figures, which include an 8-bit Link and a Wind Waker version of Zelda, will work with next year’s Wii U and Nintendo Switch game, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. In short, they’ll help keep Link well-fed and full of rupees.
Like the Wolf Link amiibo released earlier this year, The Legend of Zelda 30th Anniversary amiibo will summon some extra help for Link in Breath of the Wild. Instead of a co-op partner, the new amiibo will bestow upon Link piles of steaks, fish, herbs, flowers and even rare treasure.
Here’s the breakdown, from Nintendo’s Tumblr:
- 8-bit Link will reward you with a random number of barrels. You might find rupees inside too!
- Ocarina of Time Link will reward you with a random amount of meat.
- Toon Link will reward you with a random amount of fish.
- Wind Waker Zelda will reward you with a random selection of plants.
Here’s what that looks like, in animated GIF form:
The fish, for the most part, are apparently very fresh.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be released for Wii U and Switch sometime in 2017. Three more Zelda amiibo, all based on Breath of the Wild, will also be released next year.
