On its Tumblr page, Nintendo outlined the functionality for the new toys, including 8-bit Link, Ocarina of Time Link, Toon Link, and Wind Waker Zelda. Here's how they work, as written by Nintendo:

  • 8-bit Link will reward you with a random number of barrels. You might find rupees inside too!
  • Ocarina of Time Link will reward you with a random amount of meat.
  • Toon Link will reward you with a random amount of fish.
  • Wind Waker Zelda will reward you with a random selection of plants.

Go to Nintendo's Tumblr page to learn more. 2016 is the 30th anniversary of The Legend of Zelda series, as the first game debuted in 1986 (doesn't that make you feel old?).

Breath of the Wild comes out in 2017 for Wii U and Nintendo Switch. Though a specific release date has not been announced, it's rumored that the game will miss the Switch's launch in March.
