The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Champion Amiibo Functionality

The Legend of Zelda, Breath of the Wild


A new set of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild amiibo are available today for the public. These four new amiibo join the seemingly endless collection of amiibo that are available for the series. Fortunately, these amiibo represent some characters from Breath of the Wild and not just another variation of Link.

There a four new amiibo in total and all of them represent a Champion of the Divine Beasts in Breath of the Wild. We have Mipha, Daruk, Revali and Urbosa returning and each of them will have a small role in your game when you tap them.

If you need a refresher on how to use amiibo in Breath of the Wild, just head to our link here. If you’re an avid collector of amiibo, you probably know how to scan and use them so we’ll just skip right ahead.

The four new amiibo will give Link some new headgear, as we saw in a September Nintendo Direct. The look of helmet is based on the Divine Beasts and they also offer some buffs and resistances on top of looking cool.

  • Daruk: Vah Rudania Divine Helm – Flame Guard (Lv1)
  • Mipha: Vah Ruta Divine Helm – Swim Speed Up (Lv1)
  • Urbosa: Vah Naboris Divine Helm – Electricity Resistance (Lv1)
  • Revali: Vah Medoh Divine Helm – Cold Resistance (Lv1)

The new 1.3.3 patch adds support for these amiibo plus a new side quest that will give you access to armor that is based on Rex from Xenoblade Chronicles 2. This update is available for both the Wii U and Nintendo Switch.

As for what the rest of the patch did, Nintendo was very vague on it and only offered the typical bug fixes line. These bug fixes in the past have resulted in a smoother framerate in some areas so we’re confident in the bug fixes Nintendo is doing.

If you’re a Nintendo Switch owner and managed somehow to not pick up a copy of Breath of the Wild, now is as good as a time as any. Nintendo has announced The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Explorer’s Edition which comes with the base game, a two-sided map of Hyrule and a 100-page explorer’s guide. The cherry on top is that all of this is included for the normal price of the game at $59.99. This bundle is not available for Wii U.

The second DLC for Breath of the Wild, called The Champion’s Ballad, is due out before the end of the year so we only have a month or two to go for that release. The DLC is not available as a standalone purchase but you instead have to purchase the Expansion Pass for $20. It is set to be the last DLC released for Breath of the Wild, unless Nintendo has another trick of its sleeve. The DLC is available for both the Wii U and Nintendo Switch versions of the game.
