The release of Breath of the Wild has brought with it a return of the amiibo craze. Look at the price of Zelda amibo of old and weep, try to purchase these newly release amiibo and sigh. Note the Japanese text on these boxes, and realise that even the most avid amiibo hoarder had to turn to another country for their plastic toys to life fix.
The 30th anniversary Zelda amiibo collection is a celebration of the series through the ages, showcasing a variety of beloved characters such as NES Link, Ocarina of Time Link, Wind Waker Link, Twilight Princess Link, Majora’s Mask Link, and Skyward Sword Link. Oh, and there is also a Wind Waker Princess Zelda in the collection too, but that must have been a mistake as it doesn’t really line up with the rest. It would have been nice to see Ganon, hell, I’d even take a Tingle amiibo for a taste of variety. Nintendo just wants us to eat our greens.
Each figure offers a daily dose of loot in the latest Zelda, Breath of the Wild, even providing figure specific content to ensure the latest collection remains out of stock for quite some time. If you want to dress your Link up as the edgy Fierce Deity Link from Majora’s Mask, ask yourself just how much that idea is worth to you.
The amiibo bendy sword phenomena is still a thing too, Skyward Sword Link here is wondering if perhaps Fi is a little under the weather today. Thankfully she doesn’t have the ability to tell him what’s actually going on with her, for outside of the video game, this sword is 100% merely bent plastic.
You’ll already know if you need (not want) these amiibo, and remember, whatever happens, no matter how much you want to collect that special Zelda loot, that feeding Scalpers is wrong. Because they’ll always eat you whole.
