Amiibo Functionality in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Detailed, Includes Raining Meat


Following the release of the 30th anniversary Legend of Zelda¬†amiibo last Friday, many were wondering how the amiibo would function in next year’s Zelda game, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Nintendo of America has finally announced how they will work and it’s… interesting, to say the least.

First, each amiibo has its own effect, listed below:

  • Ocarina of Time Amiibo: Drops meat from the sky
  • Toon Link: Drops fish from the sky
  • Wind Waker Zelda: Drops plants from the sky
  • 8-bit Link: Drops barrels from the sky

See a pattern? All of these amiibo also have a chance to drop a chest featuring a rare item. Hopefully it won’t crush your precious Ocarina of Time meat.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild releases next year for both the Wii U and the Nintendo Switch.
