The original Hyrule Warriors on Wii U made use of amiibo to allow daily scans in exchange for random goodies. That continues in 3DS expansion Hyrule Warriors Legends, but as expected there's extra content to be grabbed compared to the original.
Details on these extras have dribbled out in recent weeks, but Nintendo has now produced a slick video summarising the role of amiibo in the upcoming release. The Wolf Link figure is the notable example, of course, though the trailer is handy for getting a look at some of the unlockable weapons in action.
Check it out below and let us know what you think.
Kind of how I expected them to work... except for Link! What happened to his spinner?! That's like my favorite weapon!
Hopefully we'll get the demo tomorrow or something
As far as I know, the spinner is unlocked normally in the game.
i heard legends runs like gatbage on 3ds and 3ds xl and that it works on new 3ds and new 3ds xl niocely but i hope the first 1 is not true.
@edgedino From what I've seen, the first one is true.
I like this sort of usage of amiibo. Minor cool perks that nobody would miss if they didn't have the amiibo is cool.
@-Red- nooooooooooooooo now i don't wanna get it but i want that code to get the character's.
@allav866 Unlike the Wii U version, the Spinner will be in the game without needing an amiibo. More than likely an Adventure mode unlockable.
Meh.. I had at least expected Wolf Link to unlock a brand new weapon for Midna or Twili Midna... a true waste of potential right there.
@edgedino from what I've seen its far from unplayable. it's just a bit laggy.
Does Wolf Link do anything special for the WiiU version or is he just recognized as Link again?
Meanwhile, I'm crossing my fingers to see the content poured over into the Wii U version. Seems silly to be pressured into purchasing the same (albeit downscaled) game again to gain access to additional DLC.
Really looking forward to this game! I don't usually like hack and slash type games, but really enjoyed the demo (until it suddenly cut to the "Thanks for playing" screen). Maybe it's because the enemies are not realistic and there's no blood or other gore to make my legs wobble. I'm such a wimp, but anything that's too real is a turn off for me after seeing too much real stuff in the real world.
@JTMnM I'm hoping the same thing, I don't want to bother with the 3DS version until I have played more of the original Wii U one.
@Dankykong Wolf Link is recognized as Midna/Twili Midna in both versions.
@edgedino as someone who has both.2ds and n3ds. It is true.it does not run that well at all. It should of been a new 3Ds exclusive.
I've yet to jump to new 3DS (although my wife has) and can confirm that the demo on the original hardware is not recommended. However, as the game is only £28.99 on Amazon UK I'll get it anyway in readiness for an eventual purchase of a new 3DS.
@Grumblevolcano oh lol i stopped paying attention to the functions because I'm getting neither TPHD or HW3D
@edgedino The game play I have seen seems to indicate the new 3ds can handle more enemies on screen. When running on the older 3ds or 3DS XL you have less foes was the only difference I saw. Still I plan to pick it up next week for like $12 at Best Buy after GCU discount and some credits I had. Not sure how I feel about the Season pass content though. I suppose it will depend on how much it costs and what's included. Considering the Wii U version DLC was $20, I'd expect it to come in at that price or less.
@Nico07 i just have to manage through what i do and don't buy since i got tloztphd, pikmin 3 nintendo select, and on friday pokken. gcu is so useful though lol.
@Grumblevolcano @Meowpheel Phew! That's a relief. Thanks!
I thought the subtext for the article said the master scam
@edgedino I haven't had any problems on my regular 3DS XL. The graphics are a bit lack-lustre, but it's still a load of fun.
