The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is compatible with many of The Legend of Zelda related amiibo. The first details have been announced on how the Wolf Link amiibo figure from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD is used when tapped into the game.
Wolf Link is the legendary twilit beast form of the hero Link. He worked with the mysterious and mischievous imp Midna to take down an usurper to the throne, saving Hyrule and the Twilight Realm from darkness.
When players tap the Wolf Link amiibo figure to the Wii U GamePad controller, Wolf Link joins Link in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. He helps Link by attacking enemies and hunting. Wolf Link starts with three hearts, but players can carry over their save data from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD to increase his health. Wolf Link disappears when his hearts run out.
