UPDATE (1/21): Nintendo of Europe has confirmed via Twitter that the Wolf Link amiibo will unlock powerful items for Midna within Hyrule Warriors Legends!

Good news, amiibo fans! Nintendo and Koei Tecmo have outlined how amiibo will function in Hyrule Warriors Legends via their newly launched Hyrule Warriors Legends site.

Much like its big brother on the Wii U, Hyrule Warriors Legends will support the use of all currently released amiibo. Tapping in a Link, Toon Link, Ganondorf, Zelda or Shiek amiibo will unlock a rare weapon. Tap in any other amiibo to unlock rupees or other materials. While we haven’t received any official confirmation about this, we think it’s fair to say that Wolf Link will also function like the other Zelda series amiibo and unlock a rare weapon.


Players in Japan, or those who own a Japanese region 3DS, can start playing Hyrule Warriors Legends starting tomorrow, January 21st. Everyone in North America will have to wait until March 26th to get their hack and slash fix. That should give U.S. fans the chance to upgrade to a New 3DS to get the best experience out of the game.
