Breath of the Wild: Champion amiibo Announced

Called it!

They haven't announced a release date yet, but I take it that it they might get released alongside the "The Champions' Ballad" DLC Pack later this year, because this ties in perfectly. The German press release also states that they are going to be released "end of 2017".

The game also needs an update to support them and it's doubtful that the June 30th update will provide this so soon. But maybe it will, since the three upcoming Link amiibo were already supported by the base game months ahead.

I'm not particularly excited about the quality of the amiibo, because they all ended up with poles. But it's certainly hilarious and somewhat fitting, how they put a large pole right between Urbosa's legs. Gotta get that one, before they alter it like the Dildo Edition Zelda amiibo from the Super Smash Bros. line for obvious reasons.

They also didn't say a word about functionality, but they probably just give weapons and items similar to most other Zelda amiibo. It's just a question of whether the Champion weapons will be a part of it or not, but since they are seen in the actual figurines, it would be a shame, if they aren't.
