The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD Is Getting an amiibo That Helps with Traversal

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD is getting a brand new Zelda and Loftwing amiibo that will help Link traverse the world of this Nintendo Switch remaster.In The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Link is able to use designated save points to travel from the surface to the sky and his trusty Loftwing. By using this new amiibo, which will release alongside the game on July 16, you can return to the sky whenever and wherever you wish.

Once you are done flying through the clouds or visiting Skyloft, you can use the Zelda & Loftwing amiibo again to return to the spot on the surface where you previously used it.

This new feature even works in dungeons on the surface and from within buildings in the sky.

There is no mention if this functionality is available without amiibo, but it appears this may be an advantage for those who are able to get their hands on one.


The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD is a remaster of the the 2011 Wii title and, while it keeps and improves the original’s motion controls, it adds a new button-only controller scheme that will allow for play in handheld mode.

The Zelda & Loftwing amiibo joins the Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword-themed Joy-Con that will also release on July 16 and are modeled after the Master Sword and Hylian Shield.
