Five amiibos have been announced so far for Zelda: Breath of the Wild. These are the Guardian, the Bokoblin, Horse Rider Link, Archer Link, and one for Zelda.

Each of them grants you in-game bonuses, and thanks to YouTube channel GameXplain, we now know exactly what each one unlocks in-game. GameXplain was sent the full set by Nintendo alongside a Switch.

By simply checking the back of the box for each amiibo, the channel was able to find out the in-game benefits for all of them. Here's what the back of boxes say, and some images:

  • The Guardian amiibo unlocks rare weapons and items, what looks like a unique arrow, and some crafting materials
  • The Bokoblin gives you two unique clubs, which you'll likely see other Bokoblin use late-game
  • Horse Rider Link's amiibo comes with a special sword and a new saddle for the horse
  • The Zelda amiibo gives your a shield adorned with the Hylian rest
  • The standard Link amiibo unlocks a pretty cool-looking bow

As previously announced, the items unlocked by these amiibos are attainable in-game without the need for an amiibo, they simply become available at the start of the game when using amiibos.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is out alongside the Nintendo Switch on March 3. The Wii U version release on the same day.
