Where to buy Legend of Zelda amiibo in time for Tears of the Kingdom


The Legend of Zelda amiibo are some of the toughest ones to find. But it’s getting a little easier ahead of the May 12 launch of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom for the Nintendo Switch. Nintendo is restocking the Link amiibo from Majora’s Mask

, and it’s now available for pre-order at Best Buy.

Like in Breath of the Wild, amiibo play a role in the forthcoming Tears of the Kingdom. Nintendo has confirmed that tapping a Zelda-themed amiibo on your Switch will change the look of Link’s paraglider, with a different design depending on the figure. The game’s site confirms you can receive other in-game items, too.

Nintendo hasn’t confirmed whether every Zelda amiibo (there are a lot of them) will yield a cosmetic upgrade for the glider, or if only certain ones can. So, for now, we’re focused on helping you buy the ones that Nintendo has promised can deliver special Tears of the Kingdom integration. We’ll be adding links to retailers who have stock available, with pricier alternatives in case you’re willing to pay any price to get your hands on them.
