Hyrule Warriors

Hyrule Warriors will be updated with Amiibo compatibility later this month, Nintendo announced.

Tapping the Link Amiibo on the GamePad will unlock the “Spinner” weapon, which was a useful item in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, and serves as a great tool for smashing enemies in Hyrule Warriors.

Scanning in other Amiibo have various effects, as well. Every Amiibo compatible with Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is also compatible with Hyrule Warriors. Scanning one in will grant palyers a randomly selected material, weapon, or rupee.

Hyrule Warriors’ The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess add-on pack will be available simultaneously alongside the Amiibo update.
