The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild amiibo get price hike over previous amiibo

by Daniel VuckovicJanuary 20, 2017

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild amiibo are going to cost a little more than ‘standard’ amiibo when they launch on March 3rd.

The newly announced Zelda, Bokoblin and both the Archer and Rider amiibo will draw a $21.95 premium. Previously amiibo have had a retail price of $17.95. EB Games have updated their site with the final price as of earlier today. We’ve confirmed this isn’t some sort of ‘EB tax’ either and other retailers will have that price too (unless they discount).

The massive Guardian amiibo is also $29.95, however seeing how much bigger that one is that’s perhaps a little more understandable.

All of the Breath of the Wild amiibo are out on March 3rd.

    These don’t really look too much more detailed than the regular amiibo, which honestly are a bit overpriced anyway. So why the price hike? I love Nintendo but they aren’t taking advantage of the faithful Zelda fans are they? Special edition BOTW and now this seems a bit like they are. Are they larger sized or something? And, er… what do they actually do?

      I can’t see how many of these will be used outside the game. I mean, my Captain Falcon, Samus and Ganondorf Amiibos have gotten a few uses already but the Bokoblin and the robot hentai machine? Not sure how they’ll be stretched out.

    Is there any information about what these 3 amiibo will do?

    I really want to pre-order all five B.O.T.W amiibo’s to pick up with my console and copy of the game at launch, I just can’t bring myself to do it, At least not until I know what they will offer in-game.
    I wish Nintendo would stop teasing, tell us what they do and let me throw more money at them 🤑
