Nintendo and Koei Tecmo have updated the Japanese Hyrule Warriors Legends website, which means we know exactly how amiibo compatibility will work with the Nintendo 3DS game. Like the Nintendo Wii U version of Hyrule Warriors, any one of Nintendo’s NFC figures is fair game.
Awards vary based on the sort of amiibo used. All NFC figures based on characters from The Legend of Zelda series scanned into the game will provide one rare weapon. This includes the Link and Toon Link amiibo, since the Spinner doesn’t need to be unlocked in Hyrule Warriors Legends. If you scan any other amiibo, it will randomly give you materials or rupees. Each amiibo can only be scanned once per day.
Hyrule Warriors Legends will be released on the Nintendo 3DS in Japan on January 21. It will come to North America on March 25, then to Europe a day later on March 26. Should someone go for a download copy, it will be 16,101 blocks, which is about 2GB of space.
