Link is coming in collectible, small figure form as a new Nendoroid featuring the lead character from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is announced.
One of the best things about video games outside of actually playing games themselves are the collector’s items that spring up from fans’ favorite franchises. From limited editions of games to apparel to collectibles and toys, there’s plenty for people to spend their cash on. In recent years, items like Skylanders and Amiibos have added a new dimension, attracting both collectors and normal gamers alike.
The Legend of Zelda is no doubt an adored franchise that has many fans. In fact, Game Rant recently put together a list of the must-own items every Zelda fan should have. And it looks like there might be something else to add to that list. The company Good Smile has just announced a new Nendoroid featuring Link from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
The figure, which is similar to the popular Funko Pop figures, comes with two face plates. One is a smiling face and a shouting expression to make Link look like he’s in combat. There are also a bevy of items that are included with the figure: Link’s bow and arrow, quiver, sword and sheath, shield, and the Sheikah Slate, which is heavily featured in the game.
In addition to this figure, Good Smile is making a deluxe edition of the figure, which in addition to everything mentioned above, also comes with an axe, club, chicken leg, and his hood seen in various screenshots. A horse is also included, which the figure can sit on.
For those wanting to get their hands on these figures, pre-orders begin tomorrow on Good Smile’s website. No price has been announced, but similar figures to the standard edition of the figure cost 3,500 Yen, or about $30 US. More shots of the Nendoroid figures can be found on Good Smile’s website.
These Nendoroid figures are very similar to Funko Pop, albeit different from that company’s signature design style. Figures like these are increasingly popular, with numerous games, movies, and TV shows getting these kinds of collector’s items. In fact, Funko Pops were just revealed for Mass Effect: Andromeda.
For those wanting to add more to their Breath of the Wild collection, Nintendo has a line of Breath of the Wild Amiibo coming, in addition to 25th Anniversary Zelda Amiibo that feature characters from multiple games in the franchise.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will launch on Nintendo Switch and Wii U on March 3, 2017.
