If you're interested in this special Amiibo, pre-orders are beginning to go live now.
Nintendo announced a special Skyward Sword Loftwing Amiibo to go along with the launch of the HD remaster in July yesterday. Of course, with the ability to fast travel locked to the trinket, many are not happy about the move, myself included. Locking an important quality of life update behind expensive physical DLC? That's not the best move by any means, and I hope Nintendo will reflect and walk back on the decision.
But even besides this point, the Skyward Sword Loftwing Amiibo is... well, an Amiibo, and even if Nintendo decides to release the fast travel as free DLC, there's still the collectibility factor here. This special Amiibo has two figures on it, so it goes for about double the price. It'll likely be limited, too, so if you're an avid Amiibo collector, make sure to get your pre-order in now.
