E3 2016: Wolf Link Joins The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Yesterday, three Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild amiibos were announced and along with that announcement came the reveal that the Twilight Princess Wolf Link amiibo will be compatible with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. A trailer dropped by Nintendo reveals that when touched to the game pad, Wolf Link will materialize in the game and will follow the player around to fight enemies and assist in hunting for food. Wolf Link will start out with three hearts, but can have more if the player has save data from Twilight Princess HD on their hard drive. Once Wolf Link’s hearts are depleted he will vanish and the player can summon him again after a period of time.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be coming to Wii U and the NX sometime in 2017.
