More Leaks on Amiibo Functionality for The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess! Get All the Details Here!
As previously reported, news recently dropped that the new Wolf Link Amiibo that will be packed with the upcoming HD Release of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess for the Nintendo Wii U console will apparently unlock a brand-new dungeon made for the game called “The Cave of Twilight.” However, Famitsu (via NintendoEverything) has now revealed some more reported “leaks” for Amiibo functionality with Twilight Princess HD and even more in-game features for the Wolf Link Amiibo.
When players reach a certain point in the game, using Wolf Link will allow gamers to play “Thorough Battle: Trial of the Beast.” It is still unknown if this is meant ot be Twilight Cave that was leaked last week. If players maange the to clear this area while they own the “Giant Wallet,” they will earn a “Bottomless Wallet.” The perk of this item is that players will be able to hold 9,999 Rupees compared to the 1,000 Rupees for the Giant Wallet. In addition, Link can recover his health inside normal dungeons based on the amount of hearts players have preserved in the “exclusive dungeon.”
However, that’s not even the most interesting part. The article mentions transferring data from Twilight Princess HD to the long-awaited, new Zelda game for the Wii U console. This data port can only be done using the Wolf Link Amiibo. The specific details of what data will be transported are still unknown, but the idea of is definitely salivating for Zelda fans.
The article also mentions additional effects for other Zelda-themed Amiibo for the game. Using Link and Toon Link Amiibos will fully replenish Link’s in-game arrows. The Zelda and Sheik Amiibos will completely restore hearts. Finally, the Ganondorf Amiibo will cause players to receive twice as much damage from enemies. So it seems players might want to avoid using that Amiibo unless they like the extra challenge.
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD is scheduled for release for the Wii U in Europe and North America on March 4. The HD version will arrive in Japan on March 10.
