Nintendo has released a new trailer showing off how certain amiibo figures will enhance and expand the upcoming The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD for Wii U.
The Wolf Link amiibo opens the exclusive Cave of Shadows bonus challenge, a brand new area in which players can use the powers of Wolf Link and Midna to take on increasingly tougher enemies on each floor. The Wolf Link amiibo also stores hearts earned in the game for the player to use while taking on the Cave of Shadows.
After conquering the cave, you can save your remaining hearts to the Wolf Link amiibo, and attempt to beat your score whenever you want.
Five other The Legend of Zelda amiibo figures are also compatible with the game. Link and Toon Link amiibo will refill your arrows, Zelda and Sheik amiibo will refill the heart gauge, whilst Ganondorf amiibo will cause enemy attacks to inflict twice as much damage until the play session ends.
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD will launch on March 4 as a Limited Edition bundle including the Wolf Link amiibo and an audio CD with a selection of the game’s official soundtrack.
