Nintendo’s upcoming NFC-enabled figurine platform, amiibo, will be compatible with the recently released Legend of Zelda spin-off Hyrule Warriors. Naturally, only the Link figure will work with the game.

In which exact capacity this will work is not yet known, but there are plenty of opportunities to create something great with this, such as saving your own Link’s progress to the figurine for use in co-op on a friend’s game. Nintendo seem to be pushing the platform with their first-party titles – though mainly Smash Bros. – with Mario Kart compatibility also confirmed.
Hopefully we see other figurines from The Legend of Zelda too, as I for one would collect them all.
