Hyrule Warriors Legends
January 21, 2016
Hyrule Warriors is a spin-off from The Legend of Zelda series developed by Omega Force & Team Ninja of Koei-Tecmo & Nintendo for Wii U. This game requires an update in order to use amiibo. A 3DS version, titled Hyrule Warriors Legends, is also being developed for early 2016.
The first time you scan a Link or Toon Link amiibo on the Wii U Gamepad at the title screen in Hyrule Warriors, you will unlock the Spinner weapon for Link. From then on, you can obtain all 3 tiers during normal gameplay.
Any time you scan a compatible The Legend Zelda character amiibo on the title screen of Hyrule Warriors you will be given a random, 3★ (or higher) Lv. 3 weapon for that character. The weapon you receive can be any weapon you have obtained for that character, including DLC weapons you may have purchased. If you do not have a Lv. 3 weapon for the character you scanned, you can get one for any unlocked character.
In Hyrule Warriors for Wii U, the Link & Toon Link amiibo are treated as the same character. It is currently unknown if this will change with the release of Hyrule Warriors Legends for Nintendo 3DS, as Toon Link will then be a playable character in both versions.
If you scan any other amiibo on the title screen of Hyrule Warriors, you will get a random gift. These gifts include a random 3★ (or lower) weapon, a random Material or a random amount of Rupees.
Each day, you can earn 5 amiibo presents, however each amiibo can only be used once a day as well. The only exception to this unlocking the Spinner. Once you have received 100 amiibo presents, you will unlock the “amiibo Warriors” Medal.
