Amiibo compatibility is coming to Hyrule Warriors, Nintendo has announced. Players will be able to use the Link figure in the game at some point in the future.

Specific details beyond the initial announcement were not shared today.

As tweeted by Nintendo of America:

Nintendo updated the official Smash Bros. website today with a new look at the Amiibo usage in Smash Bros. Wii U. You’ll find a set of images in the gallery above, and a comprehensive overview below.

Essentially, amiibo are character figures that allow you to connect directly to your amiibo-compatible games. Super Smash Bros. for Wii U can read your amiibo and transform them into what we call “figure players” that will join the battle with – or against – you!

Figure Players Join the Battle

Adding figure players to the game is easy. When selecting fighters to play in a Smash battle mode, simply touch the NFC touchpoint with your amiibo and a figure player will appear in an empty fighter slot.
