Nintendo has revealed that Link will no character partner in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. As announced on the Treehouse live gameplay streams today, Link will be able to explore the world freely without an AI character partner such as Navi, Midna and Fi as seen in past franchise games.
Yet in a rather interesting twist, fans who own the Wolf Link amiibo will be able to place him directly into Breath of the Wild as your partner. By running alongside you, he can help sniff out items within the universe and aid you in battle too, giving the Wii U and NX title another layer of interaction. Wolf Link is just one of the compatible amiibo that can be used within the game, alongside the three newly announced Zelda amiibo.
