Those naughty data miners are at it again; they've only gone and analysed leaked data files for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and have made some interesting discoveries. You can read the whole thread over on Reddit, but here is a summary:
In the data files the following amiibo information was found. This all tallies with existing Zelda amiibo and the new range which come out with the launch of Breath of the Wild this week.
It should be noted that Takt is short for Kaze no Takuto, which is Wind Waker's Japanese name. So this leaves 3 amiibo data entries which are yet unaccounted for:
This appears to be a strong sign that Nintendo is planning to release Majora's Mask, Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword-themed amiibo later this year. Would you rush out and buy these if the rumour turned out to be true? As always, let us know with a comment below.
I'm a mark for Zelda stuff, so yeah I'd buy them. My set of 5 BotW ones have just dispatched.
I still wonder if the happy mask salesman will be in breath of the wild.
I won't buy them if they don't have a purpose.
As much as I love Zelda, my wallet can only take so much so I hope it's not true😅
Why Zelda is entitled as a Doctor ???
My boy! This is what all heroes strive for!
I saw Zelda Doctor and had a mental image of her throwing pills down a bottle to kill viruses.
I hope they come on Holidays, otherwise I must sell one of my organs really quick...
Going to get all three!
Majora amiibo I'd buy immediately. The functionality doesn't really bother me, I get amiibo for the figures.
It could also be that their primary function will be for another game that hasn't yet been announced, with these three amiibo set to be released around the time that game is released.
It's also worth noting that all five of the Zelda related Smash Bros. amiibo are also listed, suggesting they will have individual functionality as well... along with a common amiibo entry, suggesting that all other amiibo will just have a generic function.
Give me a Fierce Deity Link amiibo and it's a day one buy for me!
I really want a minish cap set.
Would I rush out and buy them??? Why yes... yes I would.
Uhh man, I love amiibos but this is getting beyond what my wallet can handle.
Eh, I'll find a way.
As cool as this would be, I'm still not willing to drop 13 dollars to unlock one semi-nifty item.
Haven't been able to order the Guardian, or both Link's from this new collection. Excited that we might be getting amiibo of other Link's...maybe we can get Link's from the 2D games and have a complete set!
Though technically we have a Twilight Princess figure from the smash series...then again we had Wind Waker Link from Smash too but that never stopped them!
Nice catch. Of course that's been confirmed and documented in videos. If you're interested to see what all the Smash Zelda amiibo do, and all other amiibo, a quick Google search should do the trick
@Baker1000 there is a 2D (will kind of) Amiibo for Link already
Also looking at the list above, there is no Sheik or Gannondorf mentioned
@DragonEleven I'd wager a guess that it'll be Skyward Sword HD. It's the next logical remake and let's face it, now the Joy-Con can effectively act like Wii Motion Plus enabled Wii Remotes, it makes a lot of sense. Not sure if they'd release it in the same year as BotW however, what with the DLC keeping BotW current for a bit longer. Wouldn't surprise me though.
@Bunkerneath yeah I meant in addition to that one, from Zelda II, ALTTP, the Oracle games, etc
Are people still falling over themselves to buy amiibo? I gave up after the first 3 months and only have the ones I want as collectables. Crazy money to try buy them all. I haven't bought a new one since chibi robo and I don't intend to buy anymore ever again.
Day one cop for me.
In a heartbeat. Especially for Majora's Mask and Twilight Princess
Pray for a Groose amiibo
I'll take an SS Link and Zelda, MM Kid Link and Zora Link
I would love to see Link on a Loftwing from Skyward Sword much like Link on the horse from Breath of the Wild but anyways YES I would buy them all gotta lot love for my amiibo collection especially my Zelda ones.
I'm buying them as decorations for my shelf anyways, but can we please get an update for Hyrule Warriors/Legends that adds proper functionality for the Toon Zelda and Young Link amiibo?
Of course they will be sold. It would be quiet stupid not to. I'm not buying any Amiibo.. just not my thing. Sorry Nintendo i guess you can't buy everyone buhahaahha
That'd be cool but I stopped buying amiibos because they do almost nothing interesting and they take up too much room. I love the look of them, and if I were like 15 years younger I'd probably try to collect them all. But as an adult in his 30s with other priorities these will just sit on a shelf and take up room. Plus the money I'd spend on them is money I could buy games with.
@invictus4000 It'd likely be $16 now. The price of amiibo keeps going up.
@setezerocinco I'm sorry to say this, but if they were gonna add functionality for new amiibo that late, they'd have done so in one of the DLC update patches. My guess is that the amiibo will arrive sooner than that.
I love Zelda amiibo, but the number of these is getting ridiculous.
@allav866 I mean the amiibo release, the functionality is already there, as it seems...
@2CUTE4YOU they usually are more expensive on launch and when they are very rare to find, otherwise, you can find even for $ 6 on amazon.
NINTENDO! I want to keep some of my money you know...
I'd get Majora if it is a Fierce Deity amiibo
Do they all have to be Link? I mean some other character like other Zeldas (Skyward's Zelda would be day one purchase for me), Ganons, side characters, etc. would be more fun.
But since these Zelda amiibo are clearly selling, those'll probably made eventually too.... XD
More SCamiibo? Well there's a surprise! /sarcasm
Not a chance am I buying any of these things.
So many posts seeing amiibos as glorified DLC :face palm: They make nice ornaments too
I'm hoping for Skull Kid, Zant and Loftwing.
If that was the case i would buy 10 of them lol.
Transforming into fierce deity link was the best thing ever in any zelda game.
Tbh, I'm starting to get a little amiiboed out. Even with the Zelda series!
My BotW ones were dispatched this morning, I would love to add more to the ever expanding collection!
Doctor Zelda confirmed
In for three new Zelda amiibo.
@setezerocinco That's what I mean; the fact that the functionality is already coded in implies that the amiibo might be released soon, meaning you and your kidney are gonna take a trip to the black market in the near future.
Too many Links. I have the Smash series, Wolf Link from Twilight HD bundle, and I did get the pixel Link to match my pixel Marios, but seriously. I've already stumbled across Ocarina Link as well as the Windwaker Toon Link/Zelda combo set while browsing at Gamestop so not sure why those are considered leaks when they are already on store shelves. Do we really need clones of Link and Zelda from nearly every game in the series? I'd rather collect Amiibo figures for NPCs and other characters from the franchise. I also reserved a Guardian because that thing is Boss. Who doesn't want a tentacle monster Amiibo with posable arms?
Just postingba warning, for everyone who dont like spoilers l, dont search for zelda on youtube. Someon is leaking all the stuff on youtube (cutscenes) story, gameplay, Nintendo is blocking him but he keeps coming back with a different name. So yeah dont go searching on youtube, just wait lol.
I would buy them for sure! I want the outfits and weapons I like free stuff in games xD but that's not the only reason. I <3 the zelda series in general and want to eventually own every amiibo. T^T It is just difficult to keep up with out a steady income.
