GameXplain has released a new video showcasing the box of the Nintendo Switch alongside the first look at the upcoming Zelda series amiibo.

When we take a look at the back of Archer Link, we see it unlocks what looks to be a bow.

The Guardian amiibo appears to unlock items weapons, crafting items, and what appears to be a treasure chest.
