Fans who purchase the Link Amiibo figurine will be able to use it for more than just Super Smash Bros. It unlocks a new weapon in Hyrule Warriors.
Link’s Amiibo grants access to the Spinner weapon, which looks to be some sort of giant killer spinning top. The weapon can be used to great effect, snatching up groups of enemies and dispersing them all at once.
I wonder which other games you’ll be able to use the various Amiibo figurines with.
