Everyone loves a good amiibo, and as time has gone by Nintendo'a attention to detail and refinement of the manufacturing process has only made them more delightful.
Following this tradition, the release of the four new amiibo based on The Legend of Zelda series has got this video-based writer all giddy, and you can see this as well as the new amiibo coming out of their boxes in the video above, as expected
Oh man. Love these.
Oh my goodness, I need all of them! :3 Seriously, I've always wanted a model of adult Link from Ocarina of Time (my favourite design of Link) and at last we have it! I just hope they're stocked well enough.
I just came here for the violence. Was not disappointed
How dare you rub OOT Link in our faces... by putting it in your face... I want one
What's funny is that a video of unboxing the toys-to-life figures would be longer than a video of showing the toys coming to life in game.
I was in a Target that had 3 of those yesterday, just missing 8 bit Link, and several cool Jakks Pacific figures.
Not a chance. I require (want) one Link per Amiibo and Toon Link still holds true, same as Dr.Mario is my pick with this character. Buying into all variations of one character is a dangerous path.
My OoT Link came in the mail today! It's very detailed, and overall I'm very pleased with it.
Loved the video, though the shooting gallery theme admittedly annoys me after a little while.
Can't wait to get a closer look at Metroid's 30th Anniversary amiibo.
I swear they posted this article to irk our Irish friend....
@Pazuzu666 So you're saying someone with six Links, three Zeldas, two Peaches, two Rosalinas, two Isabelles, two each of Inkling Girl, Boy, and Squid, and two R.O.B.s has a problem? Asking for a friend.
I wasn't tempted to get the wind Waker two pack but bought a game instead. The 8-bit Link is quite big though.
I thought you were going to lose some fingers with your knife. I had to explain to my 5 year old daughter, watching with me, that sometimes adults make unwise choices and she can't mimic what she saw in the video.
Good video as always!
All I needed was the 8 bit Link to go next to my 8 bit, brown sleeved, 30th anniversary Mario, and I couldn't be any happier. They now guard my TV fiercely.
Too bad we didn't have Amiibo's when DK's 30th anniversary passed. I'd love to complete the "Miyamoto trio"
Bring on the BOTW amiibo
@Niinbendo What are you talking abo........."The SCamiibo are good, the SCamiibo are great, I surrender my will as of this date!"
But, seriously? No!
@SLIGEACH_EIRE Shouldn't the orthography be "SCAMiibo"? Too much danger the subtlety would be lost, otherwise.
A bit late, I've had mine for over a week now.
I have all the Zelda series amiibo. I even had to import wolf link. I preordered all these new ones from Japan but sadly has no shopped yet. Also waiting on my display case.
I got the 8 bit link just now but now they I see the squid and go see if Best Buy has it I never got a chance to get the trifecta the first time around..
I like the way you think man! I just bought the 8 bit link for that same reason.
I got em all last week. They go well with my other LoZ Amiibo. I want more. I meed more. I love em all.
Oh, come on Alex! Who opens their amiibos like that? Be a man and rip their cages apart! I always do that, too lazy to walk all the way into the kitchen to get a pair of scissors.
Got mine last Monday from the GameStop I buy 95% of my gamer needs from. Usually they arrive a day before release and since "they don't have a release date" I can take them with me once they arrive. But the mail man just didn't come that day and I couldn't be bothered driving all the way into town on my free day. Anyway, I naturally love Toon-Zelda and Toon-Link - Wind Waker is my favorite Zelda - OoT Link looks great, too. What annoys me about 8-bit Link, though, is that the downside of his mouth isn't the color of his mouth but of his skin. Takes me out of the experience a bit.
@arrmixer The US never got the squid amiibo separtley as far as I know. That pic I took is just a toy. I recently bought the re-skinned boy and girl inkling b/c they were about $4 each clearance at Target. I've been using them to do the challenges in Splatoon.
oh dam well I guess I'll stick with the inklings then...
@Captain_Gonru "Toon characters together in a pack"
Usual stupid Nintendo stuff I think, US only gets the bundle, UK gets them individually. I still don't have a squid amiibo b/c I have never seen that by itself in the US. And I've still only seen wolf link amiibo in the game bundle.
Just watched the 1st episode of Westworld w/ my wife. Probably not you're thing but it was even better the 2nd time I watched it. 9 more to go as we avoid all the online spoilers. Going to go play Bayonetta 2 now, trying to get it done this weekend so I can start focusing on the holidays.
West world is a Great series you and your wife are going to enjoy it.
@cracka They were packaged differently in the U.S. Toon Link and Zelda came as a set.
@MadameSpuki sold out ages ago
@Captain_Gonru west world is boring as hell
@Retron Series 2 is probably the BotW amiibo announced at E3 this year.
Any UK readers you can get 3 for 2 on all amiibos at Smyths. Also Lego Dimensions too.
Im gonna play breath of the wild without amibo
@DESS-M-8 Don't ruin my dreams. I was lucky to enough to find one for Christmas. (In a supermarket in England, even)
"Wowzers trousers, this is a chunky, chunky monkey."
@Captain_Gonru WW is on HBO, so I think it will be on Amazon Prime, not Netflix. 30 day free trial will get ya thru the 10 episodes.
HBO Now is always offering free trials on mobile as well if you haven't had one yet.
Maybe Wolf Link will come out w/ Cloud and Bayonetta and all be playable skins in Darksiders? Have you played Bayonetta 2? About 3/4 done and I honestly would not have believed Wii U was capable of those graphics if I hadn't see them w/ my own eyes. So so good. Hyrule Warriors and XCX were great, but Bayonetta 2 is a whole other level. I'm pretty sure a PS4 port wouldn't be noticeably different. No need.
@arrmixer shhh, spoilers.
Does anyone know 100% for sure yet if the Toon Link amiibo here reads as Toon Link in Smash?
He mentioned to look it up online but I never have been able to find anything clear on if it reads as Toon Link or Regular Link.
Do these work in Hyrule Warriors? If so, what do they do? In other words, do all the Link variations give the same weapon for the same Link or do they give weapons for separate Links, etc?
I just need the OoT Link one to stand beside Shiek on the shelf with all my versions of OoT
@Captain_Gonru "Netflix DVD"
I was in Target today and saw Windows 10 in a small box on USB. I'm assuming there was some type of thumbdrive in the box, but I had never seen that before. Probably been doing it for years but it's news to me.
@Captain_Gonru Well I do feel better about you not knowing about the thumbdrive. I should probably ask aarron but it's too late to spell his name right.
Here's what it looks like on Amazon.
Anyway my point was if Win 10 can do it, how long before games start coming that way? Switch carts may lead the way. And I'm still waiting for toys-to-life to have built in thumbdrives. Yoshi Wooly World, Chibi Robo on 3DS, TP HD. If you are going to ship a toy w/ the game why not put the game on the toy w/ a slide out port? XCX special edition came w/ a few tunes on a cool thumbdrive, they could have put the game on there too.
@MadameSpuki I've found them pretty much everywhere. You should still try and grab them now, just in case.
@whanvee I've got one now, waiting for me at Christmas. I'm really excited to finally have an OoT Link figure.
@Captain_Gonru Ooh I found an animated one, even better.
@Captain_Gonru Merry Christmas! I got myself the system, the game, and my mom got me the hardcover guide and she got my wife the steel book blu ray which contains the webisodes. I helped my mom out on the last 2.
When did you get a PS4?
Did you ever finish the CW shows? Finish moving?
Woh it's late, catch u later.
@Captain_Gonru I vaguely recall you getting an X1, and I vaguely recall about 8 years ago when Xbox got FF and it broke my brain. I still can't comprehend it.
If you still have 2 episodes to watch from that 4 ep crossover there are still another weeks worth of shows for you to watch before the mid-season break. Well maybe not all 4, but Arrow and Flash.
I wish I could have slept in until past noon, but things to do. I have to transfer my families accounts from PS3 to PS4, but I can't remember any of the passwords. And I set them all up in foreign countries to gt all the demos foreign countries used to get but now I feel like giivng them US accounts so they can buy stuff bu then they'll lose all their trophies. So it's early and I'm pre-caffiene trying to figure out what I've done and how to best undo it.
And finally this morning I have to hook up my sons NES Mini, but I don't know how. His PC monitor only has 1 HDMI in port and nothing else, I think his PC has HDMI and VGA out, and his 32" 720p HD TV only has DVI and VGA. Which is why it's in his room, I gave it to him when we got a 39" 1080p for our bedroom. So I might try to talk him into buying himself a new tv for his bedroom. He's 14 and has about $350 cash in his wallet, he can spend $150 on a cheap TV.
So the 3 days of Christmas stress is over, now I have to figure it all out. And the PS4 is weird getting used to the menu too. Man I'm tired.
@Captain_Gonru "Kinda funny how, on Legends, Supergirl got more screen time than most of the Legends."
Were the Legends even in it? It was the Oliver & Barry bromance hour. OK, I suppose White Canary is a Legend, but Rip didn't even make an appearance. Works for me of course.
Thinking about buying a $1 female coupler, leaving that on a short cable on the monitor, then PC and NES Mini can keep their own cables. Guess I'll have to see what my kid wants to do, how much he thinks he'll be using each 1, what he wants to spend. $10 for a switch isn't bad either. I just went thru all my old PC cards and considered sticking one in his 5 month old PC but the on board cheapie graphics are just as good, and don't require a 400 watt power supply, his PC only has 300 watts.
Ah look, the sun came out, that's nice, maybe we'll go outside for 15 minutes and shoot some hoops, all of this electronics stuff is starting to give me a headache.
@Captain_Gonru "And with Rip not currently on the show, it would be odd for him to show up now."
Well yeah, if you want to get all technical about it.
The thing about going back in time was Cisco did everything, even the guilt trip afterwards, so unless he's on Legend snow, I still say it was more about Arrow and Flash than Legends.
Watched the anime Brotherhood film, not bad. Will probably get to the feature film on Thursday and game not until Sunday or Monday. Still haven't started Uncharted 4 either, my wife said we have to watch the last 4 episodes of Westworld first, which makes sense. She's going clothes shopping all day tomorrow, I'll be napping as much as possible while the boys play on the NES Mini. Friday night her dad and his wife are coming over for Hannukah dinner so we'll be busy all day cooking and cleaning. Saturday night we're going to a new years' Eve party at 6. I need a vacation from this week's vacation.
So you go ahead and start FFXV, I'll catch up. Once I start it will be 2 hours a night every night except Fridays when my kid has basketball. Should finish the man story just before the Superbowl, then I hear tons of monster hunts after.
Did I show you my pick? The guide came w/ a 25x35 poster map. If it was 24x35 I'd frame it. Still working that part out.
@Captain_Gonru "anthology show"
I like that, reminds me of comics I used to read in the 70's. JSA should be enough of a hook. Couldn't be any worse than Legends. I guess the hardest part would actually be behind the scenes w/ agents working out salaries for appearances on a 2nd show for the regulars on Arrow and Flash. And I like your idea of Felicity and Cisco setting up shop together, a hacker overlord/underground where they monitor trouble worldwide and call in who they need. I think Challenge of the Superfriends used to work that way, focusing on different characters in different episodes. Had Cisco not made up w/ Barry him and Felicity both had reasons to leave and form their own team. Plus w/ Cisco's worm hole powers they can bring on whoever they want. Maybe transfer the generator from Starlabs, I've had enough HRs.
Guess we'll see, I can't imagine Legends getting renewed if as you say it's worse than last year, last year was a horrible mess.
@Captain_Gonru Better start saving your pennies, going to be an expensive year. And now I need to watch 4 seasons of Shield before September, Black Bolt rulz.
