The Link Amiibo Needs Redone Scott's Thoughts: 23 Days to Smash Ultimate

The Link amiibo needs an overhaul.

Link was released in Wave 1 on November 21st, 2014.

As a Wave 1 amiibo, Nintendo had no prior experience with optimizing poses and reinforcing figurines.

As a 2014 release, Breath of the Wild was still known simply as “Zelda Wii U.”

Look how ugly it is!

I’m thankful that Sakurai and his development team are taking the time to update Link’s visuals and moveset to match the wildly popular (get the pun?) newest game, but now we are left with an amiibo/character mismatch!

Sure, the same predicament applies to Zelda and Ganondorf, and I wouldn’t mind if Nintendo rectified those situations as well, but no amiibo is in greater need of help than our poor Link.

I can’t fathom what they were thinking when they propped him up on a pillar of frozen urine.

SMH my head.
