Update 2:

The video is now live again from an official source, as the horse had indeed bolted.


Well, there was a video published to the public, but it's now been set to private by Nintendo (as of 10:15am UK time on the day of publication); nevertheless details are below, along with a rip of the video via GameXplain.

Original Article:

The Legend of Zelda; Twilight Princess HD will be an exciting way to kick off the 30th Anniversary celebrations for the franchise, though in recent days it's been the source of some controversy. Famitsu details of the usage of amiibo in the game, both the new Wolf Link and Zelda-themed Smash Bros. figures, has caused plenty of debate.

Thankfully, at least in the interests of clarity, there's an official trailer that succinctly explains the features - it's been published by Nintendo Deutschland. It shows that the Wolf Link amiibo doesn't so much unlock a 'dungeon', but rather a challenge area - the 'Cave of Shadows' - that varies in terms of the enemies it presents. It also confirms the roles that Link, Toon Link, Sheik, Princess Zelda and Ganondorf amiibo play, showing off the - optional - buffs or increase in difficulty they offer.

It seems all of the amiibo, ultimately, either give optional assistance or - in the case of Wolf Link - add a challenge area with further boosts. We can, of course, simply not scan them if we want to experience the game as it was originally designed.
