Gaming is a pastime that brings many people together. Family and friends alike can bond over a beloved series or treasured game. Like many gamers, Corey Austen and his brother Matt shared a love for Nintendo’s Zelda series. However, while Matt sadly passed away earlier this year, Corey might be able to play one last game with his lost brother. In a touching letter published on Zelda Informer, he described how using his brother’s Amiibo in Breath of the Wild would let his save data join him as a companion.
“But there was one part that got me. The Wolf Link amiibo. When they revealed that the game data from Twilight Princess would be used in Breath of the Wild as a companion, I broke down. Right there. At my desk.
It was so unreal. My brother and I could still play the new game. Together.”
Nintendo recently responded to the letter, sending Corey a large care package of Zelda merchandise. However, it was the handwritten note they included that really shows how much Nintendo cares about its fans.
“Our condolences on your loss. May your brother’s legend live on forever. Thank you for sharing your story.”
