Much like its predecessor, Breath of the Wild, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom makes great use of Nintendo’s amiibo figurines, allowing players to scan their favourite NFC-enabled characters to unlock gear and items in the game.
Like before, the amiibo from the Zelda franchise are absolutely the best ones to have on-hand as they’ll provide unique unlocks, unlike the rest of the vast amiibo catalogue which will just spit out random items.
To start using any amiibo in-game, you’ll just need to do the following:
Select the amiibo ability from your weapon wheel
Hold the amiibo to the NFC reader on your Joy-Con or Pro Controller
Watch the rewards drop into the game in front of Link
