The amiibo list is a popular series of figurines created by Nintendo to promote their various video game franchises such as Animal Crossing, Zelda, Smash Bros, Metroid, and Mario. The amiibo figures are highly sought after by fans due to their ability to be used as save data, unlockables in games, or just a decorative addition to any collection. The Legend of Zelda series of amiibo figures are some of the most requested and sought after in the franchise, with classic characters like Link and Princess Zelda getting the most attention.
The Legend of Zelda series boasts some of the most iconic characters in gaming history and Nintendo’s line-up on amiibo reflect this sentiment. From classic characters like Link & Princess Zelda to more modern additions like Groose & Agitha released in The Wind Waker HD release on Wii U; fans have plenty to choose from. All designs look great; accurately capturing both the art direction taken for each character as well as conveying their unique personalities through unique poses and facial expressions.
The primary function of these amiibo is for fans to unlock special content within various games; usually exclusive items or content which otherwise can’t be obtained through normal gameplay. To do this players must scan their respective figure onto an NFC reader (e.g: built-in reader on WiiU/Switch), causing it to “unlock” special content within the game they’re playing at that moment. This has proven very popular amongst gamers as it gives every player a chance at achieving something extra that they may not have been able to do through normal gameplay.
