Despite the figure not being shown in the Nintendo E3 Direct, The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening is getting its very own amiibo release. And wow is it adorable.
As you can see, it's based on Link's cutesy design from the new Switch release, which was confirmed to be releasing on 20th September during the show. Nintendo has provided us with the lowdown on our new favourite amiibo below:
Launching alongside the game will be a new Link amiibo figure that lets players put this adorable new art style in the palm of their hands. A special Dreamer Edition will come with the game and the Dreamer Art Book, which features concept art from the Nintendo Switch version of the game. The game and amiibo are each scheduled to launch Sept. 20.
Are you a fan of the design? Will you be buying one when it launches in just a few months' time? We just can't stop looking at it.
guess i'm not gettin' ctr
I have 5 Amiibos featuring Link already and don't need any more
Buuuuuut, it's pretty damn adorable.
That scream you heard was my wallet jumping off a bridge... and me just screaming.
I have a MIGHTY NEED!!!
so is there a special edition or does it come with?
I don't collect amiibo so won't be getting it but it is pretty cute.
....I guess I'll get. Thanks Nintendo.
I think this is actually Link amiibo # 15. Fifteen of Link.
Where's the sword and shield wolf amiibo. They need them, not Link.
Will all 10 DQ heroes get their own amiibo?
Banjo-Kazoey is going to sell well. Possibly back on eBay for that one.
Have we seen the Joker amiibo yet? His big ghost-soul-tank thing should be part of it somehow.
Dreamer edition? Are they spoiling the game?
OK... Might be my second amiibo.
..... I guess I'll be more in debt haha
I have 11 Link Amiboos - this will make 12!
Done with amiibo, unless it unlocks something good and exclusive.
This Link looks like he'll make a marvelous dentist someday.
Where is that Rankin-Bass styled Mechanical Ganondorf fanart when I need it?!
Europe is also getting this special limited edition bundle.
That's adorable, I want it.
But what does it actually do?
Huzzah! Would have preferred one based on the original game (especially if it unlocked a
Link in the art style in game), but this is still awesome. And technically it’s meant to be the same Link as Link to the Past Link, who’s not been Amiibified yet (oddly missing from the Zelda anniversary series)
That is rather cute , and because it is cute I want it
Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in!
@RupeeClock He adds a dark link enemy into the dungeon builder
Ah, here we go. Nintendo, we need this:
I hope there is also a Marin Amiibo.
I don’t need another Link amiibo.
Yes, I hope to get it, but I don’t need it.
That's the next Amiibo I'll buy.
I'm super annoyed that Europe's Special Edition comes with a Game Boy steelbook case and the art book while in North America, we just get the art book. ARGH, Nintendo and their regional exclusives are such an annoyance. Everyone should have the ability to get these without having to pay import fees.
Hi my name is beermonkey. I have been amiibo clean now for 12 months. I haven't even thought of buying an amiibo... Oh no... No... Why... (See's Snake amiibo as well.) Noooooooooo!...
Hi my name's beermonkey and I'm an addict...
@DarthFoxMcCloud Glad we actually get something. It's usually the stuff they can't get rid of we get.
I always wanted a Link amiibo, almost caved when YL came out for Smash, but I think this time I'll go through with it.
It's still an ugly design🙁
Man, I love Zelda games and Link's Awakening but cannot stand the design of Link in this. Horrible face.
Another new Amiibo for the collection I see.
@Desrever I bet you $1 you cave in
I need it in my life
It’s so cute it hurts.
Ugh. Every time I think I'm done buying amiibo, they show me another one that I need haha.
@PuzzleMaster7 What retailers are getting it?
@RupeeClock that is exactly what i am wondering also...
What does it do?
@Chibi_Manny @RupeeClock : It cutely deprives you of a small amount of wealth.
I guess that's how Link would look in Earthbound...
@Silly_G lol good point, it wouldn't be the first amiibo with sole functionality being taking a portion of our money, after all half of all the Zelda amiibos do exactly just that, they don't have any real purpose.
@sakke95 It's a bit underwhelming, but not as FunkoPop as feared.
Beautiful! The new Link looks very cool.
I'm just sad that they changed the shield design to Hylian
@Beermonkey Lately Nintendo hasn't been giving North America anything. The last good special edition would have been for Breath of the Wild at launch. But now we get an artbook and they call it a day while other regions get other cool additions like the Steelbook. I've said it before and I'll say it again, regional exclusives suck...especially on a console like the Switch which is supposed to be region-free. Everyone, Europe/North & South America/Asia/Australia & New Zealand/Africa/anywhere Nintendo operates should have the same chance at the Special Editions. Make enough for every region to get some!!!!
