A MIIBO SELECTOR
Breath Of The Wild may not arrive on shelves until next March, but the game certainly feels ready for the main stage already – and so, inevitably, are its tie-in Amiibo. Yet while you wait for Breath Of The Wild and its associated plastic figures to arrive, you could do worse than fire up Twilight Princess HD. The Wolf Link Amiibo released alongside Nintendo’s remake of Link’s Game Cube and Wii outing can also be used in Breath Of The Wild, spawning a lupine ally that fights alongside you, and alerts you to nearby enemies and resources. You won’t be able to use it right at the start of the game, since you must acquire a rune for your Sheikah Slate before Amiibo functionality is unlocked. And with good reason: Wolf Link offers quite the boost. In Twilight Princess it gives access to a challenge dungeon, the Cave Of Shadows; completion data is saved to the Amiibo, and carries over to Breath Of The Wild, your remaining hearts in Twilight Princess dictating your new pet’s health bar.
