    I’m lost here… Are there some content exclusive to amiibo or not?

    • Chaos_Knight

      Everything you see here is amiibo only.

      • Velen (Not WoW)

        Eeeeey

      • jorden1506

        Yeah but one tunic is still obtainable without amiibo.

        • Bradley

          Which one?

          • jorden1506

            The one you get when completing all shrines tubic of the wild i thought it was called

          • Chaz Wallace

            fang and bones, dark link outfit.

          • jorden1506

            damn forgot about that one XD

          • Chaz Wallace

            Expensive though. almost 3k is a LOT of parts.

    • Kenshin0011

      They are exclusive, there is no way to get it unless you own the amiibo. It’s pretty lame on Nintendo’s part, and honestly puts them on the level of some of the worst microtransaction companies, in a way.

      • Lilla My

        I’m getting spoiled by looking on this f***ing amiibo stuff.

        Now I know for the outfits, but what about the weapons and shields that can be dropped by amiibo, are they exclusive?

        • Kenshin0011

          For weapons/gear, I’m unsure. It seems that they’re in-game weapons with stat-boosts

          • JasonBall

            There are exclusive amiibo weapons like Biggoron Sword

        • Hexodious

          Goddess Sword
          Sword of the Six Stages
          Biggoron’s Sword
          Fierce Deity Sword
          Twilight Bow
          Sea-Breeze Boomerang
          Hero’s Shield

          Unsure about the Twilight Bow due to a Easter Egg side quest based on Twilight Princess (haven’t started it myself yet) but thus far these are all exclusive to Amiibo (as far as I know)

        • Fyre Fry

          These aren’t spoilers, dude.

          • Lilla My

            I meant that by looking for amiibo exclusive content list, I came across some other quests/outfits related stuff.

      • Bap

        Wow, yes you are losing so much on cosmetics in a single player game, woe is you.

        • Kenshin0011

          Why do you care how little or how much I value the content? Cut content is cut content, and it’s not like I’d be unwilling to pay a couple bucks for the DLC…but we cannot, they’re each locked behind various $13 figurines.

          • jorden1506

            Cut content implies it was once just obtainable in the game, which isn’t the case. It always was planned to give you special items with amiibo. A green tunic is still available in the game. These are just extra’s for people who have the amiibo. You shouldn’t see amiibo as I pay 13$ for a costume in BotW, but you pay 13$ for an AI leveling Smash opponent, item giver, special costume giver. Amiibo give stuff in various games not just one.

          • Kenshin0011

            It’s cut from the main game. It’s literally available on the disc/cart data but is locked away for an arbitrary ($13) reason.

          • Izaal Daar

            Maybe this content exists only because they spend money obtained by previous amiboo seelling to pay the programmer that day of work…
            Nintendo is getting money from amiibos, they use it there and there and, to keep amiibos interesting and reward the owners, they use a tiny part of said money in order to program adittional content.

            Mario Kart 8 didn´t have Mii outfits when it came out, they implemented that outfits for the amiibos… but everyone had to download that content in order to play online… you had that content in your WiiU, but you cuoldn´t use it, the same here. It doesn´t matter where the content is, is where the money to pay it came from and what king of monetization the company wants to apply for it.

          • Tony Buti

            OF course it’s on disk… how else would the amiibo unlock it? SPLaatoon had costumes from amiibos too. Quit being a wet diaper millennial

          • ForeVision

            I’m going to agree with you on that one Kenshin. That Fierce Deity outfit looks like it would be fun to smack Ganon around with 😛

      • Fyre Fry

        It’s not microtransaxtion if it is a one time purchase of a collectible that has an addition function. Just like dlc, the amiibo are completely optional.

      • zandatsu

        Bruh it’s cosmetics

        • Kenshin0011

          Cosmetics is a billion dollar industry, so I’d say people care 😛

          • zandatsu

            Bruh, they’re bonuses if you own the Amiibo. They’re also not even micro transactions or in any way affecting the gameplay, all of these abilities are linked to armor sets already in the game.

  • Kenshin0011

    It’s not fair that you have to own all these $13 and up amiibo to unlock all this cool content.

    • TheGoomba

      “Cool content?” I fail to see how anyone’s game is going to be burdened by not having a stronger Master Sword beam.

      • Kenshin0011

        Uhh, the outfits themselves? And that’s just your opinion. The fact of the matter is that several pieces of content are locked away for no good reason.

        • YoungTheFish

          I’m with you on this that I don’t like DLC in general. If it’s good content it feels cheap to lock them behind a paywall, if it’s irrelevant content it feels stupid they charge money for them. Just impossible to balance. These tunics do look better than the one in game, but honestly they don’t look that great. Something about the tunic skirt really doesn’t look natural.

        • Fyre Fry

          You’re just jealous that you don’t have the amiibo to use. It solves nothing by complaining. Get your own amiibo and quit your complaining.

    • Amiibo, to me, have always been relatively cheap figures of Nintendo characters that I love and could buy and have on my shelf to look nice. Any added functionality after that is just gravy. And that’s what this is: gravy. Extra outfits that have no bearing on the game outside of some pretty worthless stat boosts. Calling it content is a bit of a stretch.

      • Kenshin0011

        I like gravy and without it my meat is dry 😛

      • Fandangle

        Compare to older games that had gravy naturally.

        Honestly, I’d be fine if they gave them as themed quest rewards and DLC. Or at least do the curteous things and make amiibos more widely avaialable. I’ve been looking for the Smash toon link and Sheik amiibo for ages because I mistakenly thought that since they were Zelda they would go down in price.

    • Brendan Heckman

      You can make your own amiibo for a $1 each, just Google it

      • Kenshin0011

        Yea I’m aware of that, but do not wish to. I’m willing to pay for this locked away content, but for a reasonable price.

  • Very interesting that there’s MM themed and Skyward Sword themed outfits that aren’t connected to currently released amiibo. Hrrmm…

    • Señor Cardgage

      Here’s hoping this points to a 3D Zelda collection for Switch…

      • I’m hoping there may be something in the cards like that, yeah.

  • Carlos

    Nice. I need to open up my Amiibo so I can get these.

    • Peter Parker

      You may not need to, try scanning the bottoms of them whilst still in the packs if you want to keep them on card. I hear that works.

      • Nowhere Man

        They put something in to prevent this. There are methods to get out the piece of cardboard blocking it without opening it, but really, it’s not worth the effort.

      • Carlos

        Only for the Shovel Knight amiibo. There’s some aluminum type metal at the bottom of the boxes that prevent you from using them in the box.

  • Operative

    I need that fierce deity costume but noooo of course they have to lock it behind an amiibo that doesn’t even exist yet

    • burchdude65

      I understand people’s frustration with this, but I doubt the costumes would have existed without amiibo.

      • Operative

        That’s equally disappointing. Instead of including these cool easter egg costumes for fans of all the games, they only did it to lock it behind a physical piece of merchandise when it would have been a great reward to some side quests

        • Nowhere Man

          Lol, no Zelda game has ever done this, and very, VERY few games ever do something to this scale. Gamers are so entitled nowadays. He’s right, these costumes aren’t in the game without amiibo; either buy the amiibo for them or don’t, and be thankful they were made in the first place. They made PLENTY of other armor sets.

          • Operative

            Lol there’s that word. Entitled.

            “You don’t want to spend money for in-game armor? entitled! Entitled!”

            I’m guessing if this was a game made by EA, suddenly it’d be a sleazy move.

          • Nowhere Man

            No. “You don’t want to spend money for in-game EXTRAS.” You not getting that shows entitlement. They’re purely in the game because amiibo exist, and they are not required for 100% completion. It’s really not hard to understand this: Without amiibo, those armors don’t exist, because they’re not even remotely necessary in game and PURELY cosmetic, whereas other armor sets serve particular functions.

          • Operative

            For a game that costs $60 plus $20 for the season pass, I find it really sad that not wanting to buy more for these extras is seen as “entitled”. That word is so abused nowadays it’s just become a lazy argument for “if you disagree with me you’re spoiled”.

            So no, I don’t find it very nice that you need to get a bunch of separate $13 figures if you want to complete the in game armor sets.

          • Izaal Daar

            I should repit myself: Maybe this content exists only because they spend money obtained by previous amiboo seelling to pay the programmer that day of work…
            Nintendo is getting money from amiibos, they use it there and there and, to keep amiibos interesting and reward the owners, they use a tiny part of said money in order to program adittional content.

            Mario Kart 8 didn´t have Mii outfits when it came out, they implemented that outfits for the amiibos… but everyone had to download that content in order to play online… you had that content in your WiiU, but you cuoldn´t use it, the same here. It doesn´t matter where the content is, is where the money to pay it came from and what king of monetization the company wants to apply for it.

          • Nowhere Man

            Lol it’s not about disagreement, never once have I brought that up. Why must you create a strawman? One last time, say it with me: This content does not exist without amiibo. That’s what you’re not getting. It’s truly EXTRA CONTENT. Content that was never intended for the final product of the game. I get the argument of “well it’s in the game so we should all get it,” but that is ENTITLEMENT. They made this to reward the people who DO buy their amiibo, nothing more, nothing less. A VERY easy concept to understand. They aren’t required to 100% the game, aren’t better than other armor sets, and offer you nothing that the Tunic of the Wild set bonus doesn’t offer you. They’re purely cosmetic for those who DO buy amiibo.

            Maybe that word is “abused” nowadays from random strangers you meet online, but I can assure you I only throw that term out when it’s deserved. And yes, gamers today are SERIOUSLY entitled. You see it on Twitch, comments on reviews, social media, YouTube, wherever you go. Maybe it’s a vocal minority (doubtful), but it’s an annoyingly vocal crowd that’s entitled. There are instances when this kind of criticism is warranted. If they had locked story content behind amiibo, that’s warranted. EA and Ubisoft’s practices, those are warranted. This is absolutely nothing.

  • Travis J Smith

    To be honest i think the amiibo content is totally fair. Those of use who went out if our way to collect all the zelda amiibo are finally gettkng rewarded, no amiibo functionality up until this point has been worth the purchases with the exception of hyrule warriors. I feel like breath of the wild is rewarding long time collectors instead of giving us some stupid shoe in content no one cares about. The only reason people care now is because they cant get it and im sorry but thats fair. Its purely cosmetic stuff, you can get much better gear than this anyways. Besides given thatits nintendo theyll release all that stuff as DLC down the line anyways like they did with hyrule warriors. Im happy that there is a game finally rewarding amiibo collector’s. I will say though. Epona being amiibo exclusive is garbage.

    • Lilla My

      It’s not fair to not have all the content when you don’t want to buy plastic “Made in China” toys, believe it or not, it’s not eco-friendly – buying the hardware is already enough –, and it’s part of my choice not to buy ALL this crap.
      Also, like in a lot of games, cosmetic is important, saying “it’s purely cosmetic” doesn’t change a thing, this game is made to spend time in it, it’s not just stats and beating Ganon that makes the game enjoyable.

      • Travis J Smith

        Like i said i think its totally fair. It’ll probably be released as DLC later anyways. Amiibo content is just a cool bonus for amiibo collectors… you dont buy the amiibo you don’t get the content. And as for them not being “eco-friendly”… erm… wtf? But i can understand where you are coming from too. Especially if you’rea completionist

      • Nowhere Man

        Nintendo had no obligation to put in previous Links’ tunics or weapons into the game — something they’ve never done in previous Zeldas. This is extra content at its fullest, and it’s completely fine to be locked behind their respective Link amiibo. If you’re arguing environmental impact then you’re REALLY grasping at straws, as our electronics sure as hell aren’t any better. Yes, it’s your choice not to buy the amiibo. That’s fine, and hasn’t changed. It was their decision to include EXTRA COSMETIC content locked behind amiibo. It’s not needed to 100% any game. I went ahead and bought every Zelda amiibo after I found out; no one’s making you do so.

        And fortunately, cosmetics aren’t important in this game. At least these armor sets. They have the same defense as most armor sets (and less than a few), give you the same set bonus you’d get from the Wild armor set (BOTW’s tunic), and they have no individual bonuses like climbing or stealth. These are not important, are not needed to 100%, and are completely extra considering they’re based off characters not in this game. They’re there as an homage, nothing more. They have no obligation to catering to people who have no interest in purchasing amiibo.

        • Lilla My

          Indeed, Nintendo had no obligations, I wasn’t even expecting so many green tunics, nor I really wanted them. However, they exist, so it means that time has been spent to create them – did amiibo pay for them or not?, we don’t really know.
          But I’m a simple player, I see something I can’t get because of rules outside the game itself, I whine. I totally agree, they like come from nowhere, there’s no stories with those items, no extra quests, that’s why I’m not happy about that but I can live with it… but what about Epona? And the weapons? That’s harsh.
          I’m always fascinated to see customers defending a business strategy from a company they have nothing to do with, it really tells me a lot day by day.
          I just have one point to make: in Breath of the Wild, you’re able to dye your outfits, it’s part of the game, even if it’s not calculated in the accomplishment percentage, don’t think you can reduce a game experience to a list of numbers. Everything in this game is telling me that anything is important, including useless outfits… (I never would have played so much time in mmorpgs, if my character was looking like a potato.)

          About the environmental impact:
          As I said the hardware impact is enough, everyone has their own contradictions, perhaps I do other stupid purchases worse than amiibo, but I decided from the beginning that amiibo incentive was my threshold for my Nintendo purchases.
          I have two amiibo – Toad and Yoshi – and I’m open to buy others, but I choose them because I want the physical item for itself, if you buy them for digital content – as it sounds you told me –, then you fell in the trap.

          • Nowhere Man

            Lol we’re just going to go in circles, so I’m only responding to the last part. There’s no trap, it’s a decision I made that no one forced me to. I could easily live without the tunics, but I wanted them and have the money to buy them, so I did. It’s as simple as that. I’ve ignored countless other amiibo, Zelda just so happens to be my favorite series, and I firmly believe this was GREAT use of amiibo, which most games struggle with. Oh, and I guess one more thing. The weapons break and there are in-game equivalents that are equally strong, so that’s a non-issue. As for Epona? Again, purely cosmetic. There are actually better, 5-star horses in the game.

          • Chris Armstrong

            I just want to point out that you don’t need aiimebo figurines I have the cards which I purchased for 11$ on eBay all 19 of them I will also be buying a reader and writer to make my own. Small price to pay

    • Kenshin0011

      That’s worse than the way other games do DLC, even season pass’s. It’s not only cheaper, but some people simply don’t desire to collect all of these.

    • Evan Gustavson

      I don’t remember them releasing the Spinner as DLC later down the line in Hyrule Warriors.
      That’s the only Amiibo exclusive in that game.

      There are horses in game better than Epona, so Epona is purely cosmetic, and you can get much better horses.
      I’ve heard someone say they registered a random horse with 5-4-4 stats.
      Epona is only 4-4-4.

      • Nowhere Man

        Epona has maxed out stats. I haven’t found the royal or giant horses, so unless they somehow go beyond max stats, there are no better horses than Epona. That someone lied to you.

        • ForeVision

          I am unaware about any royal horses, but I do have the giant horse. It has 5/5 Strength and can go to the stage before stamina kicks in permanently, but can’t go higher. http://www.gosunoob.com/zelda-breath-of-wild/taming-horses-secret-mounts/

          • Nowhere Man

            Huh, that’s interesting. The actual in-game text said Epona had maxed out stats if I remember correctly, but I guess that’s not true. It does look like 5-stars is the maximum stat for all three. Or maybe I just read somewhere that mistakenly said Epona had max stats.

      • Fandangle

        The spinner however was pretty obviously a last minute cut from the game for amiibo content.

        • Evan Gustavson

          I don’t think so. It wasn’t even in the game’s files until version 1.3.0, when the Twilight map released, and Amiibo functionality was added.
          That was months after release.
          If anything, it’d be cut from the DLC pack.

  • Bart

    Wait, Smash Bros Link unlocks an outfit? 😮

    I got… something else… (guess I won’t spoil it) and thought that was it. Guess I gotta scan it again then, see what happens.

    • Nowhere Man

      First scan is different only for that amiibo. If you’re talking items, all outfits are pretty rare drops.

      • Bart

        So you’re saying you need to actually get lucky too when scanning? That’s uh… interesting…

        • Bradley

          Funny thing is that I got the Sword of the Six Sages on my sixth scan, I just kept loading the game.
          And after I got the sword I put it in my house, I don’t know whats wrong with me XD

          • Bart

            Hah, I did the same thing with the weapons you get for defeating the guardians, never used ’em, just put ’em on my wall. xD

            “I’m not made out of diamonds you know!”

            Well, I kinda was for a while, but then I sold almost all of them to the lady in Goron City…

          • Bradley

            Yeah she makes you RICH, I was so glad when I found her for the first time, she says she buys different rocks but all she asks for is diamonds from me XD

          • Nowhere Man

            Save your gems, do the Snowling mini-game for rupees. There’s a YouTube video up on the perfect spot to consistently get strikes (I messed up a few times but like 85% strikes probably). Farmed 5.1k in like 25 minutes, bought the house and all its upgrades right away.

            But as he said, people usually save before scanning an amiibo and reloading until they get an item they want (exclusives, star fragments, diamonds, etc.).

          • Bart

            Thanks for the tip but I think I’m good on money for now, already unlocked the house and all the fairies so unless there’s another money sink in there I haven’t discovered yet… (and please don’t tell me if there is 🙂 )

          • Peter Parker

            Me too, didn’t want it breaking, ha.

  • maxleresistant

    meanwhile the season pass gives us a Switch T shirt…

    Nintendo, WTF are you doing?

  • Brendan Heckman

    You don’t have to modify the game to get the skyward sword or fierce dirty sets. The items are already in the game, you just need to get the correct $1 NFC chip and put the leaked files into it. It’s not hacking the game or changing it in any way.

  • halcyon

    personally i think the wild tunic you get naturally looks the best. though it is lame that amiibo is being used as expensive dlc just for some skins

  • mofi

    An entire companion mechanic is locked behind an amiibo and you guys complain about cosmetic items?

  • Martin Naranjo

    Twilight Princess and Hero of Time Tunics are so freaking amazing!

    “Design Limitations” yeah Nintendo whatever!

    • Nowhere Man

      To be fair, they DID make a Tunic of the Wild.

  • TheWeasel

    It’s still pretty surprising to me how people still don’t understand amiibo nor amiibo content.

    Then again, it really shouldn’t be all that surprising.

  • JasonBall

    I’m still miffed my 90 dollars of BotW amiibo don’t give me anything exclusive.

  • Annie

    I wish the OoT outfit was unlockable without the amiibo 🙁

  • Adrian Brown

    Say whatever you want, but this (and maybe Mario Maker) is the best use of amiibo to date.

  • JasonBall

    Why is THIS old article trending?

  • JasonBall

    Why is this old article trending again

  • MagcargoMan

    I don’t why this is trending now but they never released a Fierce Deity Link or Skyward Sword Link amiibo so I’m guessing these two are completely inaccessible legitamately forever?
