Welcome to our The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD Walkthrough!
Please note that we are still updating our guides to be in line with the HD version.
This is a guide on amiibo functionality in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD for the Nintendo Switch. Read on to learn more about the Zelda and Loftwing amiibo, and whether Skyward Sword supports other amiibos.
List of Contents
The only confirmed compatible Amiibo for Skyward Sword HD is the Zelda and Loftwing Amiibo. Players who previously purchased many Legend of Zelda amiibos for costumes in Breath of the Wild may be slightly disappointed to hear this news, but the Link Skyward Sword Amiibo, as well as all other Zelda (and non-Zelda amiibos) are not compatible with Skyward Sword HD.
Call for Fi and select 'Use amiibo'. Place your amiibo on the joystick to scan your amiibo. When it is recognized by your Switch, you can now freely travel to the Surface or to the Sky!
While on the Surface, using the Zelda & Loftwing amiibo will let you teleport to the Sky on the spot. This feature can be used inside dungeons, so if you run out of items, it would be a good idea to return and replenish your items in Skyloft.
While on the Sky, using the Zelda & Loftwing amiibo will quickly return you back from where you flew from the Surface.
Normally, you can only choose the landing point by picking a location of a Bird Statue, but with the new amiibo, you can go back from anywhere you like!
