Best Buy amiibo

Three unannounced amiibo with ties to the Legend of Zelda line were discovered through retailer Best Buy. Not long after the listings were up, Best Buy pulled them from the site, currently leading to an error page.

Evidence strongly points to these three amiibo being tied to the Zelda 30th anniversary amiibo series. Not only did the Best Buy listings mention these figure’s game compatibility with Zelda, as in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild,  datamining of the Wii U version of said game unveiled the existence of three currently unannounced figures. These secretive Zelda amiibo are to be based on Twilight Princess, Majora’s Mask‘s Fierce Deity Link, and Skyward Sword.

Best Buy amiibo

As with the currently available Zelda amiibo, be they from the 30th anniversary line, the Super Smash Bros. line, or the Wolf Link figure, the unannounced amiibo discovered in the game would carry their own exclusive gear and weapons to unlock. As Best Buy clearly posted the listings in error, it will be a while until Nintendo confirms anything about the future of Zelda-related amiibo.

    Makes sense there will be more Zelda amiibo. Probably their best sellers by far.

    Still waiting on the bayonetta amiibo release date 🙁
