Hyrule Warriors gets Link Spinner from Amiibo use

Nintendo has specified how Amiibo will work with Hyrule Warriors, adding a whole new character... sort of.

Until now, we weren't quite sure how Hyrule Warriors would utilize the Amiibo figures. It was only known that support was promised. But a new trailer answers that question by (literally) taking Link for a spin.

Using the Link figurine will introduce the Link Spinner character. This will allow Link to surf Hyrule atop a spinning disk, taking out copious amounts of enemies along the way. He'll also have his own set of abilities, including one that allows him to summon other spinners to lob at foes.

Link won't be the only Amiibo usable with the game. Other Amiibo figures can be used with the game to gain special weapons, rupees, or other bonuses. Experimentation looks to be encouraged.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
