Two new Nendoroid Link figures are set to arrive this Summer, just months after the long-awaited release of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
Three years after its surprise announcement during E3 2014, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will finally release on March 3. Link’s latest adventure is the most ambitious Zelda title to-date, however the survival-based chapter of the saga stands as a bitter-sweet farewell to the Wii U; despite its original reveal as a Wii U title, Breath of the Wild is now a launch-title for the Nintendo Switch, and will be Nintendo’s final first-party game for the Wii U.
Several collectible manufacturers are preparing to release a series of statues, figures and even Amiibos to celebrate the upcoming release of Breath of the Wild. Good Smile Company is no exception, as the company recently revealed two new Nendoroid figurines modeled after Link’s new appearance. The standard “Link: Breath of the Wild” collectible depicts the Hero of Time with his new blue tunic and a series of interchangeable items, including a bow-and-arrow, a quiver, Shiekah Slate and a Hylean Sword and Shield. An alternate “DX Edition” is also available for pre-order; this limited edition variant includes Link’s new horse, an axe, chicken leg, club, and Link’s new hood and cowl. Both Nendoroid variants include a display stand and two faces allowing fans to change Link between content and battle-ready expressions.
Good Smile Company’s Nendoroid Link: Breath of the Wild figures are currently available to pre-order through the GSC online store, and will release in early June; the standard version is listed at 4,500y/$39.90, with the DX Edition priced at 5,800y/$51.40.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will release for the Wii U and Nintendo Switch on 3/3.
