Nintendo has made available details on the rewards that players can earn when they employ compatible amiibo figures with The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom finished the most recent Nintendo Direct presentation with a gameplay trailer that provided a glimpse into some of the fresh aspects that fans can anticipate when the eagerly awaited game is launched later in 2021.
Nintendo has made known to the public several details concerning the forthcoming title, Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. An accompanying trailer was released, and a Collector’s Edition was revealed. The game will cost $70, while the traditional game price is $60. A new Link amiibo figure based on the game’s protagonist will also be released, and it will provide players with a special paraglider. Additionally, other Zelda amiibo figures released over the years will also give access to the paraglider.
At the Nintendo Direct, the new Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom gameplay trailer was released and then Nintendo unveiled the gliders that can be attained with amiibo. The Link (Rider) amiibo, based on his Breath of the Wild look, gives the glider a darker design. The Zelda & Loftwing amiibo, which is based on Skyward Sword, gives the glider a makeover that resembles that game. The most eye-catching glider comes from using the Majora’s Mask Link amiibo, making Link’s glider look like the Majora’s Mask.
Collectors of Zelda memorabilia may be drawn to the amiibo figures due to the glider makeovers, however there are additional benefits. Nintendo have yet to reveal any specifics, but they have teased that these amiibo will provide players of Tears of the Kingdom with items and weapons. It is uncertain if the bonuses will be unveiled before the game’s launch in May, so it could be that fans will need to wait until the Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom release date to discover precisely what the amiibo figures can do.
It appears that The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom will make its May 12 launch date as the most recent trailer of the game has reaffirmed this. Nintendo’s assurance of this is further demonstrated by the start of pre-orders and the increase of the price of the title, indicating that it is sure it will meet the set date.
On May 12th, the release of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom will be available exclusively on the Nintendo Switch.
