Earlier this month, we told you that Hyrule Warriors will support amiibo – starting with Link. On today’s Nintendo Direct, Nintendo revealed just what the Link amiibo will bring to Hyrule Warriors – the Spinner from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.
The Spinner is an amiibo-exclusive item, and won’t be obtainable through normal gameplay. Link will be able to use the Spinner as a weapon by standing on top of it and riding it – just like in Twilight Princess.
Nintendo also revealed that Hyrule Warriors has full amiibo support, meaning that all amiibos will be available for use with the game. All amiibos, aside Link, will be able to be scanned to unlock randomly chosen weapons, rupees, or materials.
