Link amiibo unlocks Spinner weapon in Hyrule Warriors
After ambiguously teasing compatibility with Hyrule Warriors, yesterday’s Nintendo Direct provided details as to how the Link amiibo will benefit those with the Wii U exclusive.
Those that scan the amiibo figure can unlock the Spinner weapon for Link, an item that was first seen in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. Primarily used as a puzzle-solving device, the green tunic garbed hero will instead ride on top it as it slams into unsuspecting enemies.
It isn’t only Link’s amiibo that will interact with Koei Tecmo’s spin-off, with every Super Smash Bros. series amiibo figure granting players randomly selected materials, weapons or rupees.
Hyrule Warriors is now available exclusively for Wii U worldwide.
