Zelda: Breath of the Wild amiibo functionality shown off, other amiibo compatible
Five new amiibo from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild launch on March 3. On its Japanese blog, Nintendo finally provided an official look at the functionality.
Here’s the rundown:
– Link (Archer): get items like meat and fish, and also bow and arrows
– Link (Rider): get mushrooms and weapons, horse tools
– Zelda: get plants and shields
– Bokoblin: get meat and weapons
– Guardian: get ancient materials (players must see for themselves what these do in game)
Tapping amiibo from the Smash Bros. line of Zelda amiibo will reward special items from treasure chests. Tapping any other amiibo will result in materials like meat and fruits.
Each amiibo can be scanned once per day. Images of the Zelda: Breath of the Wild unlocks are posted below.
More Zelda: Breath of the Wild amiibo functionality from the back of the boxes
Earlier today, we started to learn about the functionality of the new Zelda: Breath of the Wild amiibo – specifically the new Link figures. Now we have news about the other parts of the lineup.
Much like Link, the Zelda, Guardian, and Bokoblin figures seem to unlock items. The Zelda one for instance provides a particular shield. Rather than being exclusive, all of the figures just appear to give you access to goodies earlier.
Zelda: Breath of the Wild – new Link amiibo unlock new items and weapons
Fans have been wondering how the new Zelda: Breath of the Wild amiibo would work with the game since they were announced last week. Images of the boxes are now beginning to surface, revealing the functionality – at least for a couple of the figures.
It seems that the new Link amiibo unlock new items and weapons. Apparently the Archer version provides rare bows and Rider Link gives treasure for riding horses such as saddles and large swords.

Fire Emblem Echoes amiibo apparently unlock a special dungeon

When Nintendo announced Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia last month, two new amiibo were also revealed. Alm and Celica will both have their own figures. But what functionality do they offer?
According to an Amazon Japan listing, the amiibo unlock a special dungeon. It’s a bit tricky though since the description doesn’t elaborate further. We can’t currently said if the two amiibo unlock the same dungeon or different dungeons. Fire Emblem Echoes is coming to Japan in about two months, so we shouldn’t have to wait terribly long for an official answer.
Thanks to Brian for the tip.
