The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening amiibo mechanics detailed

What do amiibo do?

We know that The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening lets you scan in amiibo, but what do they get you? Check out a rundown of info below.

- any amiibo figure can be scanned into the game
- scanning an amiibo will unlock a new chamber for your custom dungeon
- there can be a maximum of 5 different chambers
- Link's Awakening amiibo has Shadow Link as a modifier, putting him into one of the rooms of the dungeon
- defeat Shadow Link and complete the dungeon to get a lot of rupees


After seeing games such as Mario Tennis, Mario Party, Mario Maker lacking amiibo features, I thought the amiibo line would be killed after Smash. Seems like Nintendo isn't that ready to give up on amiibo yet.

I wonder if you'll get anything special by scanning other Zelda characters.
