The official Nintendo UK store is now listing the full range of new Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Amiibo for pre-order.
Oh Nintendo. If it wasn’t painful enough to cough up £279 for a Nintendo Switch, plus £50 for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on 3rd March, you now want another £69 for the full range of Amiibo figurines, too?
To accompany the release of much-anticipated Wii U and Nintendo Switch Zelda adventure there are five new compatible Amiibo figurines hitting store shelves. Link comes in two variations, Rider and Archer, and is joined by Princess Zelda plus two of the game’s enemies; the Guardian and a Bokoblin.
The Nintendo Store is listing each Amiibo at £12.99 with the exception of the over-sized Guardian Amiibo, which comes in at an equally over-sized £16.99. Prices can change, of course, particularly when Amazon gets indications of its stock allocation.
Nintendo hasn’t announced the specific in-game functions for the new Breath of the Wild Amiibo figures but we’ll update this page once that information is available.
