Nintendo has just announced an absolutely BEAUTIFUL Princess Zelda and Loftwing amiibo is coming alongside The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD on July 16th! But just what the heck does it do in the game and will other amiibo work?



What does the Zelda & Loftwing amiibo do in Skyward Sword HD?


Tapping the amiibo when you’re on the surface allows Link to instantly teleport to the skies atop his trusty Loftwing. Tapping the amiibo again in the air allows Link to teleport back to the same spot on the surface where you first used the amiibo. This also works in dungeons!


Does the Zelda & Loftwing amiibo work in other games?


Typically, when a new amiibo is released with an existing character on it, it will function in any game that character works in. That being said, it is likely that Zelda and Loftwing will also function as a Princess Zelda amiibo in other titles like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Hyrule Warriors.


Do other amiibo work in the game?

According to the official Skyward Sword HD webpage, no other amiibo will function in Skyward Sword HD. This may change as we approach the release date. Stay tuned!
