Zelda: Breath of the Wild – special amiibo unlock

Posted on March 2, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in Switch, Videos, Wii U

All sorts of amiibo can be used in Zelda: Breath of the Wild to unlock various goodies. Eurogamer stumbled upon one thing in particular that may catch your interest. It’s never entirely clear where the spoiler line lies, so we’ve posted the video after the break.

Using the Smash Bros. Link amiibo, you can unlock Epona in Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Now the question is: can you unlock the horse through other means, or is she tied to the figure?

  • PLOT TWIST: she rides just as crappy as she does in Twilight Princess.

      TP or TPHD?

      • Regular TP.

        Is it weird that I controlled her a lot better in the Wii version compared to TPHD?

        • JasonBall

          Eh, not really. Each control scheme and handling physics is good for certain things and not others.

    But can she die? If not that breaks the game, if so it breaks the heart. And even if she does die, can she be resummoned like the Wolf? Like, you’ll be able to summon a wolf and a horse daily? And why the **** is the only known exclusive amiibo item ingame from a two year old one, not the brand new dedicated BotW amiibo?

    But now I must buy the rest of the SSB Zelda amiibo, I only have two, if this is the standard not the exception.

    • I used to have every Zelda amiibo (including Wolf Link) then the 30th Anniversary line and the BotW line came out. I have been slightly saddened that I can’t say “I have every Zelda Amiibo” anymore. I will eventually get them all though.

        Yeah I have all the new ones but not the old ones, so we’re in opposite positions. But I have the added issue of the older smash amiibo being harder to find nowadays.

        And now there’s possible new 30th anniversary amiibo, so really, I’m gonna be in the red for months.

        • We are all gonna be breaking the bank for the next year.

            IM only missing Toon Link from Sm4sh line. I have Link, Zelda, Ganondorf, and Sheik from the Super Smash Bros Line, and Wolf Link, from the Twilight Princess bundle, and 8-bit Link, Link, Toon Link, and Toon Zelda from the 30th Anniversary set.
            I also have preordered Link (Archer), Link (Rider), Zelda, Bokoblin, and Guardian from the Breath of the Wild Set.

      I’ve heard elsewhere that she can die. It’s likely the same as Wolf Link or any other horse.

    THAT SWORD THO!

      Who needs the Master Sword if you can have that bad girl ?
      😛

    It would have been more fitting to the 30th anniversary OoT Link amiibo imho.
    My opinion is not at all biased because I have that one and not the Smash one, no no !
