Nintendo announced today a new Zelda & Loftwing amiibo that will launch alongside The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD on July 16.
The new Zelda & Loftwing amiibo features two characters on a single base: Zelda as she appears in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD, and her trusty Loftwing.
In The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD, Zelda is the hero Link’s childhood friend and is always looking out for him. Loftwings are large birds living on the floating islands of Skyloft and are ridden by the people there to travel across the skies.
In The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD, the adventure takes place between the skies where Link and his friends reside and the vast world of the surface that lies beneath the clouds.
Normally, you can only return from the surface to the sky by way of designated save points, but using the Zelda & Loftwing amiibo while on the surface in the game will allow you to return to the skies from anywhere on the surface, even inside dungeons.
When you are in the sky exploring and you use the Zelda & Loftwing amiibo again, you can return to the spot on the surface where you used it before.
The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword HD will be released for the Nintendo Switch on July 16. check back with us for our review coverage. Stay tuned.
