The Legend of Zelda


 

A new wave of Zelda-themed Amiibo could be right around the corner.

Listings for three new Amiibo briefly appeared on retailer Best Buy’s site earlier this week, and were spotted by Reddit user Pokemiibomadness. Though the listings didn’t name the Amiibo or offer much in the way of details, the site did say that the Amiibo would be compatible with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Although technically all Amiibo can technically drop food and other consumable items into the game, only a few special Zelda-themed Amiibo drop unique items—Link’s trusty steed Epona, a companion version of Wolf Link, and specially-themed gear.

Thanks to some fans willing to toe the legal line and hack their games, we know that there are a few custom pieces of gear already in the game that can’t be accessed with any of the current Amiibo. One is the Fierce Deity set, based on the same outfit from Majora’s Mask, and another is Link’s outfit from Skyward Sword. It’s very likely, then, that at least two of these unnamed Zelda-related Amiibo will be the Majora’s Mask and Skyward Sword figurines needed to unlock these outfits.

These Amiibo currently don’t have a release date.
