It does not matter if you are a collector of amiibos or not: the new figure that will accompany the launch of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD it is quite a whim. And the best thing is that not only does it look great: if we scan it at any time during the game we can go up to the skies of Altárea or return to the surface. Even from the dungeons.
Unlike most amiibo, on the base we will see represented two figures recreated with a very special detail: Zelda herself and her very recognizable pelican with blue feathers. Of course, the advantage it offers in the game makes keeping it in the box a challenge even for the most picky collectors.
Let’s put ourselves in context. Instead of starting from what we all have internalized as the kingdom of Hyrule, the adventure of The Legend of Zeld a: Skyward Sword
Starting from that premise, to move from the regions of the mainland to the heavens it is necessary for Link to reach the save points distributed throughout each scenario. A procedure that with the amiibo of Zelda and her pelican it becomes completely unnecessary.
No matter where we are, when we pass the amiibo through the NFC reader of our Joy Con or the Pro Controller of Nintendo Switch we will end up flying over the skies, which will allow us to fly -literally- to the store Altárea and replenish Link’s inventory, which is a remarkable advantage.
And that’s not all. If we rescan the amiibo in the regions of the heavens we will magically return to the same point on the map we were at before we left. Regardless of whether it is a dungeon, a large open area or a small space indoors. As plain and simple as it sounds.
While the ability to teleportation by amiibo it will make our odyssey much more downhill, the truth is that it will not be the only facility that we will find in this improved edition and in HD of the classic Switch: in addition to the resolution jump, Nintendo has introduced a system of traditional controls that they do not feel anything bad to the whole.
Both the new amiibo of Zelda and her pelican and The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD will go on sale from next July 16 on Nintendo Switch. And if you plan to get both, it is likely that you are interested to know that Nintendo will also launch some themed Joy Cons inspired by the game that, officially, begins the chronology of a cult saga.
