Step Into the Clouds Once More
Zelda fans have something new to drool over today thanks to Skyward Sword HD. The remake of the high-flying Zelda adventure now has a wonderful amiibo to share. It features Zelda & Loftwing, and it’s pretty adorable. Best of all, it’ll launch alongside Skyward Sword HD when it releases this July 16th.
Not content to just be an awesome looking amiibo, Zelda & Loftwing has a pretty useful gameplay function. By scanning it on your Joy-Con or compatible controller, you’ll travel to the sky from anywhere on the surface. And yes, that includes from the depths of harrowing dungeons. Which could be a very helpful feature if you’re low on health and potions. Best of all, by scanning the amiibo again in the clouds, you can return to the exact same spot on the surface.
But the key question is how much the amiibo will cost. The Zelda & Loftwing amiibo will go for a suggested retail price of $24.99. Which is a bit more than a standard amiibo, but honestly it makes sense. Be sure to check out the trailer for Skyward Sword HD below, as well as a blurb explaining the premise of the game, in case you never played the original.
In The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD, take to the skies, draw your sword and experience the earliest story in the Legend of Zelda series with high-definition graphics and new control options. Join Link in his high-flying quest to save Zelda, a childhood friend who must confront her destiny. Soar between floating islands and descend to the treacherous surface world in this updated version of the classic game.
