Nintendo has been livestreaming hours of content from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild as part of their 2016 E3 extravaganza, but did you know the game will also support a trio of new Amiibo figures too?
The Archer Link figure depicts Link with his bow, while the Rider Link figure shows him sitting on Epona. But the most interesting of the thing might be the Guardian figure, which is a massive boss in the game, and the first Amiibo figure to include flexible parts. It’s not known how these figures will interact with Breath of the Wild, but they sure do look great, and they’ll be available sometime in 2017.
However, we do know how the Wolf Link Amiibo figure (which was included with Twilight Princess HD) with the game. By tapping the Wolf Link figure, players will be able to add the character into the game as a companion to Breath of the Wild’s Link.
Players can tap the Wolf Link figure once a day, and he’ll attack enemies on his own and help to hunt. Wolf Link will start with three hearts, but more health can be added to the character if the player acquired additional hearts in Twilight Princess HD. Wolf Link disappears once his health runs out.
A trailer featuring Wolf Link’s appearance in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is available after the break.
