The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD is set to launch on July 16th. Nintendo has today announced the Zelda & Loftwing Amiibo which is set to launch on the same day. Weirdly enough though, a fairly big quality of life improvement seems like it’ll be locked behind the Amiibo.
Obviously, Skyward Sword takes place both in the air and on the ground. You’re able to travel to the surface from the sky in specific parts of the game, where the Amiibo will allow you to go right back to where you were in the sky from any point just by using the Amiibo. You can then use the Amiibo again in the sky to return to where you were on the surface. This will even work in dungeons and within buildings in the sky.
