During a panel at GDC today, Nintendo showed off a 2D prototype used to test ideas for Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Someone has since put up a clip on YouTube showing the tool in action. Check it out below.

Today, Yacht Club Games introduced new amiibo functionality coming to Shovel Knight with the game’s new Specter of Torment update.

Using the figure, players can unlock the Fairy of Shovelry. Speak to Madame Meeber in the Village, Potionarium, and Tower of Fate and scan the amiibo to do so.

As for what the fairy does, Yacht Club says:

“The Fairy of Shovelry will accompany Shovel Knight, Plague Knight, or even Specter Knight on their respective adventures! Whether the little scamp is digging for treasure, trying to battle enemies, or cheering along with your victories, he is guaranteed to be delightful. Don’t worry, he won’t get in your way or mess with your gameplay! But things sure are less lonely with the Fairy of Shovelry around!”


The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild went through an interesting trial and error process to say the least. During a panel at GDC today, some of the game’s developers revealed some of the early ideas thrown around.

For one thing, Nintendo was toying around with “Hyrule Wars” and an idea in which aliens are seemingly invading. We also get a look at some… interesting designs for Link.

Nintendo tweeted out the images from the GDC panel:

An image has popped up on GameFAQs showing the full map included in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It’s a clear picture, devoid of borders, markings, and annotations. Head past the break for the complete map.
