The new 30th Anniversary-themed Legend of Zelda amiibo launched today and with them comes confirmation via Nintendo’s Tumblr of what they can do for Breath of the Wild players when that adventure launches next year.

Unfortunately it’s some pretty basic functionality, unlike Wolf Link. Each amiibo gives you a bunch of a certain item and, if you’re lucky, a treasure chest containing something rarer. The specifics are as follows:

  • 8-bit Link will reward you with a random number of barrels. These may have rupees inside.
  • 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.


It should definitely help out budding adventurers who are in dire need of materials, at least.

Whether it’s an exciting new entry in a series long established or a weird experiment meant only for the dedicated, Tom is eager to report on it. Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.
