Hyrule Warriors Does Well Enough, Support Continues with amiibo

Hyrule Warriors is strange for a Musou game in that it has sold better in the West than it did in its native Japan. Perhaps it’s just more proof that fans in the NA and EU regions love them some Zelda.

While the sales numbers aren’t on the same scale as something like Destiny or Call of Duty, they’re pretty decent for the Musou genre considering the state of the Japanese console market and the Wii U install base. Well, Nintendo has taken notice of the mild success and it seems to have been enough to warrant amiibo compatibility. Yesterday, the company announced that Hyrule Warriors will work with the Link amiibo.

There’s currently no information on how they will interact or if other amiibos will be supported in the future. This can only be seen as a good thing though, and as someone that’s thoroughly enjoying Hyrule Warriors still, additional content is always welcome.

The real questions raised by this ongoing support comes down to how far will it go? Will we get add-on scenarios for even more Zelda titles going forward?  Will Link’s Super Smash Bros. data provide more power in Hyrule Warriors or vice versa? Since Nintendo has been pretty big on crossover content lately, could we see the likes of Fox or Samus make another appearance outside of their respective series? Only time will tell. Nintendo has promised more information will be forthcoming.

If you’ve somehow missed Hyrule Warriors, feel free to check out the trailer and see what all the fuss is about.
