Today's Nintendo Switch Presentation had plenty of reveals, but some details have emerged through press releases and website updates. For example, two additional amiibo have been shown off for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which is coming to both the Switch and Wii U on 3rd March.
These additions are Zelda, who made a notable appearance in the most recent trailer, and a Bokoblin foe.
Are you planning to buy any of these amiibo with the game on 3rd March?
I got enough amiibos right now, I don't need more.
Must admit I like the look of these amiibos, not sure I need them though. Maybe we'll get some amiibo card versions?
@jswhitfield8 The new Zelda is on pre-order for £70? And standard version? Wow I could get Syberia 3's collector edition for that price. That's really harsh.
Sure hope these sweet BotW Collector's Editions make it to europe. Also more amiibos - yay, I guess ...
Reckon Zelda will be playable in some capacity. I'd put money on that.
I'm buying all of them, only because I have all the other Zelda amiibo. Hopefully their functionality within BotW will be more impressive than the 30th Anniversary amiibo collection.
The cost of BotW and Switch peripherals has lost Nintendo my pre-order.
And hopefully a role reversal mode will be available, so that @CharlieSmile will change her mind.
I try to stay away from amiibos myself, but for anyone who wants to jump on these, they do appear to be up for preorder at Best Buy's site right now:
[er... link no worky. Go to bestbuy.com and search for "Breath of the Wild".]
Guardian one appears to be commanding a premium $20 price point.
So the Wii u version is cheaper? Lolololol!
Another reason to just go for the Wii u version!
@jswhitfield8 Can't find it on the german amazon site but if it comes to the UK, the rest of europe is basically guaranteed, I think. So thanks for letting me know.
Damn I need that Zelda amiibo right now.
Well that means i gotta pre-order Zelda amiibo once again
@jswhitfield8 Oh good to know, but you are right, 60 is still too much when theres nothing extra :-/ (I mean like goodies, not that the game is nothing extra XD)
I don't get that rrp for Zelda standard edition, I'm not comfortable with that. I can't get Switch at launch anyway, so I'll be getting Breath Of The Wild on Wii U initially.
I like Zelda, Link and Bokoblin. Thinking about getting Wolf Link also.
Relax people, no way it'll be £70 by launch day...
It's a Zelda game, yet the game has to have all this and the other Zelda amiibo? jeez, I know it's extras, but it's a lot of extras.
Dang. Between these, the BotW special edition, and the Switch itself, I am going to be so broke when this game comes out!
I want Archer Link and Zelda.
Holy moly yes!! Love Zelda's look!
I WANT HORSE LINK, LINK AND ZELDA
UGH MY WALLET
Need to know the full compatibility and functionality of all of the amiibos before I make a decision about these... I've already got Link, Toon Link, Zelda, Sheik and Ganondorf amiibo from the existing collections (plus Wolf Link), so if they basically do the same thing as these new ones then I don't really see the point.
Nintendo. Stay out of my bank account!
More amiibo figurines I need... I hope some of these will be available as amiibo cards. I'm not sure I'll be buying more than 3, maybe 4 amiibo figurines this year. Then maybe if some of them could be bought cheaper and easier to store as cards, I would get some cards too.
My youngest son (3) loves playing with the family Amiibo collection to the point he takes Kirby everywhere he goes.
I'll buy the damned lot. The horseback one first though...
That Link Amiibo sure does look a lot like the Pit Amiibo. Still, must have them all!
Certainly look very petty.
I'm gotta buy them all! Really!
Nintendo have trademarked the name Zelda now? Man, Robin Williams' daughter is gonna have to pay residuals to keep her name now.
Aww, that Bokoblin is cuuuute!~
It's overkill and I barely care. It's almost inevitable that I own all of these. lol.
Love the new Zelda design. Her face is different, not the usual anglo beauty. It has something different, I liked it.
I wonder how the new Zelda amiibo will be used in Breath of the Wild, and whether they'll actually get any good uses in any other Switch games.
I want that!
I'm a sucker for the LoZ amiibo, and it's almost inevitable I will end up owning all of these, maybe...
These look nice! I may as well stamp "Property of Nintendo" on my billfold at this point. XD
Welp... I guess I will have to build an Amiibo bookcase after all.
These should have come with the Master Edition. I just dropped a lot of money preordering that and the Switch this morning, in fear of scalpers and shortages. Now I gotta preorder all of the amiibo... huh.
All of the above
My wallet's going to run away soon...
Heh...heh heh...hooray for living in a country that doesn't have Amiibo stock issues...
Lol, they just used the vacuum cleaner from luigi and used it on my bank account its sucking everything till the last cent. I dont care i need the switch and zelda. I compared it with the wiiU demo it runs so smooth! Its time for me to bury the WiiU and let it rest.
March 3rd is gonna be expensive...
Well I think I'm gonna get Archer-Link and the Guardian, those two look really great.
The so-called 'Zelda' amiibo is disappointing though, she looks nothing like Zelda.
@Deadstanley Couldn't tell you; I don't even know what MSRP for amiibos usually is. The prices you're describing are the prices I was seeing when I commented last night, that's all I know.
So is blue the new Link and Zelda color? Did we Switch?
I'm strangely okay with it. I mean... he was originally based on Peter Pan so distancing from that is okay with me... I think.
You know, Zelda looks ready for adventure... and has that same — I wonder if she is playable at some point! Either way I'm glad this is one where she is actively involved.
@shani What the - ? She looks exactly like Zelda. What in Hyrule? Have you not seen the trailers? IDENTICAL.
Or do you mean previous very different Zelda characters? Because — now that's even sillier — Link also looks different so why pick on her?
Which one of these is the one she is supposed to look like? https://i.kinja-img.com/gawker-media/image/upload/s--akhUK_no--/c_scale,f_auto,fl_progressive,q_80,w_800/18j0ziqbu5kjxjpg.jpg
Amazon (US) has these listed with this message: "We don't know when or if this item will be back in stock."
Haven't determined whether that means it was ever available...
Bokoblin! I am definitely getting the Bokoblin.
@aaronsullivan You're right by pointing out that all those characters looked different in all those different games and I was aware of that when I wrote my previous post.
But the thing is: across all those different games that I played (only the 3D games), no matter how different Link or Zelda looked, they still kinda looked similar in a way.
To me (and of course this is highly subjective), the new BotW Link still looks kinda similar to the Link from SS, TP, OoT, Smash, HW or Soul Calibur.
But the new Zelda looks nothing like the Zelda from SS, TP, Oot, Smash or HW. At least not for me...
I mean, where is her dress and her crown? Where are those pointy ears? And why does her face look so generic, like that of a barbie doll?
I love the new look on Zelda.
Pity there's no mega Zelda bundle like both versions of the game in a steelbook, the statue, the CD and a physical map and the amiibo for a slight lower price. Heck, bundle that all with a Zelda edition Switch, make the box look like a treasure chest and slap a £400 price tag for all of it and you've got a Zelda fan's new holy grail.....
BOKOBLIN! ♥ Did they actually listened to me?
@jswhitfield8 depending on which part of the UK you're in Argos has BOTW available for pre-order for £49.99! It's still expensive in my opinion but way better than £70, hopefully the game really is as good as it looks
