The Wolf Link Amiibo will soon hit the shelves of every big toy store. The remastered (special) edition of Twilight Princes HD comes with an exclusive Amiibo of Wolf Link. For a long time there weren’t any details released about the amiibo itself and its function(s). But this week some details were leaked/released. Before the release of the latest issue of Famitsu there were some rumors that the Wolf Link Amiibo will unlock an entire new dungeon. But is this really the case?
What’s up with the Wolf Link Amiibo
This was all based on a description for the game on the French site of Amazon of the game. They state that the exlusive Amiibo can be tapped on the Wii U pad during certain moments in the game. It will then unlock a new dungeon.
When people first read this, they lost their mind. “Will there really be an entire new dungeon that is really exclusive to the Amiibo?” My first thought was immediately: “No“, because if it would be a full canon (not to confuse with Ganon.. 😉 ) temple, how will it fit in the game. Will you unlock a new weapon? How do you take care of its boss? So from the first moment I heard it, I had the feeling that it evenutally will work out differently. It seems my guts were right. As more details were released by Famitsu it turns out that the Wolf Link Amiibo indeed has slightly different function then was first claimed.
With the Wolf Link Amiibo you will unlock a special challenge dungeon in which you can defeat waves of enemies. Per Nintendo Everything I learned that when you as player clear the special dungeon, players will be rewarded with a wallet which can hold up to 9,999 Rupee. The “Unlimited Wallet” It was also confirmed that players will be able to use the Wolf Link amiio to import certain data from Twilight Princess HD into the new Zelda game. What that will be exactly is not yet certain.
Nintendo also released a trailer with some beautiful new gameplay and explanations:
Other Amiibo in Twilight Princess HD
Other amiibo will recover items in the game. The Amiibo of Link and Toon Link Amiibo will recover arrows; The Zelda Amiibo and Sheik Amiibo will recover hearts. The Ganondorf Amiibo will cause enemies to deal double dame. Which make the game even more challenging. Pretty fun functions. They don’t make them necessary, but they are still fun to use. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD releases for Wii U on the 14th of March 2016.
