Last week, it was revealed that the Sheik, Toon Link and Zelda Amiibo figurines would have special functionality within Hyrule Warriors, similar to the Link figurine, which unlocks the Spinner weapon from Zelda: Twilight Princess. Nintendo of America have now detailed what this functionality is.


The Zelda figurine will allow you to avail a weapon rated 3 stars or higher once a day. Meanwhile, other Amiibo figurines launching alongside Super Smash Bros. will allow you to avail a weapon rated 3 stars or lower once each day.


What about Toon Link? The Japanese website for Hyrule Warriors reveals that he also unlocks the Spinner weapon, just like the regular Link Amiibo. As for Sheik, just what purpose her Amiibo will serve hasn’t been revealed yet.


Hyrule Warriors will receive an update adding Amiibo functionality in late November.
