Famitsu sheds light on Zelda: Twilight Princess HD’s amiibo features

Posted on January 19, 2016 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Wii U

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD appears to be in this week’s Famitsu once again. While last week’s article was only a recap of the game as a whole, the latest issue touches on some new features. Leaks stemming from Famitsu talk about amiibo functionality.

Using the Wolf Link amiibo at a certain place will allow you to play “Thorough Battle: Trial of the Beast” (perhaps this is the Twilight Cave we heard about last week). If you clear this while owning the “Giant Wallet”, you’ll earn the “Bottomless Wallet”. This lets you hold up to 9,999 Rupees, compared to Giant Wallet’s maximum of 1,000. The leak also mentions something about how Link’s health inside normal dungeons can be recovered by the amount of hearts you preserved in the exclusive dungeon (which I assume is this one).

Aside from that, as previously mentioned, you can import some of the data from Twilight Princess HD into the upcoming, brand new Zelda game. The importable contents are unknown as of now, but only the Wolf Link amiibo is capable of storing data to import.

When it comes to other amiibo, players can read other Zelda-related figures for extra effects that can be done once per day. Link and Toon Link fully replenish arrows, Zelda and Sheik completely restore hearts, and scanning Ganondorf means you’ll receive twice as much damage from enemies.

There are a final few tidbits that we want to mention. However, keep in mind that this part of the leak was very vague. I’m hoping we can clear this part up once we get our hands on Famitsu tomorrow.

In any case, there’s talk about the Wolf Link amiibo having a record of journeys. Their numbers can be saved, and by only touching it (the amiibo?) you can continue the adventure. It doesn’t mean you can save into a different save data though. So… yeah. Confusing. We’ll take another look at this tomorrow!
