Nintendo’s brand new The Legend of Zelda 30th anniversary amiibos will allow Link to procure items from the sky in next year’s The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. If you ever thought that what The Legend of Zelda series needed was a delivery of fish from the sky, boy are you in luck. This is the sort of random and WTF kind of fun nonsense that I wish Nintendo indulged in just a little bit more.
Today saw the launch of four brand new amiibo on store shelves – 8 Bit Link, Ocarina of Time Link and Toon Link + Toon Zelda as a two pack.
Here are the unlockables that will drop from the skies of Hyrule once you’ve used any of the four new amibo with Breath of the Wild:
- “Ocarina of Time Link will reward you with a random amount of meat.
- 8-bit Link will reward you with a random number of barrels. You might find rupees inside too!
- Toon Link will reward you with a random amount of fish.
- Wind Waker Zelda will reward you with a random selection of plants.”
No description of fish, rupees and barrels falling from the skies would be complete without some animated gifs of the new amiibo in action. Thankfully Nintendo’s official Twitter account is here to oblige:
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild got two brand new trailers earlier this week that fans have of course ripped apart and analyzed.
