There are less than a few weeks left until The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening makes its way to Nintendo Switch. In readiness for the release, Nintendo has teased fans with the news of A Link’s Awakening Amiibo that we’ll be able to use when the game is out.
What is A Link’s Awakening Amiibo?
A Link’s Awakening Amiibo is set to join the existing library of amiibos which will bring a shadow version of Link into Link’s Awakening. An amiibo comes in the form of figurines or in card form and can be tapped on the right Joy-Con of the Nintendo Switch to add new features to a game. Features might include new outfits for that particular character, new levels or news items.
The’res every chance that A Link’s Awakening amiibo can be used across other games where Link makes an appearance, but we’ll have to wait and see what happens when the game releases.
As you can see from the first tease of A Link’s Awakening amiibo, Nintendo has shown what happens when the amiibo is brought to the game. Shadow Link ends up chasing regular Link through a dungeon!
If you like a challenge then A Link’s Awakening amiibo is the perfect accessory for when Link’s Awakening launches, as Shadow Link will chase you around until you take him down.
