New Zelda And Ganondorf Tears Of The Kingdom Amiibo Will Release Later This Year

Tears of the Kingdom's Zelda and Ganondorf have their own Amiibo.


The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is getting more attention from Nintendo later this year, as two new Zelda and Ganondorf Amiibo have been revealed.

Announced during the Nintendo Direct June showcase, the first look at the new Zelda and Ganondorf Amiibo were revealed depicting their Tears of the Kingdom designs; Zelda carrying the Master Sword, and Ganon in a combat pose. It was confirmed that they are both planned for a Holiday 2023 release and will each unlock valuable in-game items, as well as a special fabric for Link's paraglider.

Nintendo released a new Link Amiibo alongside the launch of Tears of the Kingdom last month, which granted users new cosmetics and other materials to aid their exploration of Hyrule. It's unclear at this time what special goodies the Zelda and Ganon Amiibo figures will give to players.

Tears of the Kingdom received a strong critical reception at launch, including in GameSpot's 10/10 Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom review. It has also been a top seller for Nintendo, selling 10 million units in just the first three days of launch and doubtlessly many more since. It has also generated lots of discussion online, especially across social media where players are eager to show off their clever uses of the in-game creation tools.

The Nintendo Direct was filled with announcements, but the Mario franchise dominated the broadcast with a series of new reveals, including a Princess Peach solo game, a Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon Switch release, as well as a modern remake of Super Mario RPG. Super Mario Bros. Wonder, a brand-new 2D adventure, was also announced with an October release date.
