We all know the new Zelda game will be releasing at most retailers tonight at midnight, but if you can’t get out that late, you can pick up any time over the weekend.
Reviews have been coming in all across the internet on this game and words such as “masterpiece” and “Nintendo’s best game ever” have been used to describe it. In case you haven’t heard, the internet has given the game a nearly-unanimous perfect score.
This may or may not be considered a spoiler, so if you don’t want to know anything at all… don’t go any further.
It turns out that the original Link amiibo, the one from Super Smash Bros, unlocks an old friend in the new game. I won’t say who it is, but I will say it’s a really great Easter Egg that Nintendo has thrown into the game.
There is no word on whether or not this character will make an appearance without the use of the amiibo, but if you happen to have this one lying around collecting dust (like me), than you have a great new use for it.
The video also gives you a look at Wolf Link in-game, which is another great Easter Egg.
