Zelda and Loftwing amiibo features for Skyward Sword HD

In the game, you can normally only return from the surface to the sky at designated save points. If you use the Zelda and Loftwing amiibo, the game will allow you to return to the skies from anywhere on the surface, even inside dungeons. This also helps if you run out of items when on the surface because you can return to the Bazaar in Skyloft to get more supplies and then return to the surface to continue your adventure.

Zelda and Loftwing amiibo price and pre-order

Pre-orders will go live soon and the amiibo is priced at AUD 34.95 in Australia which converts to just over $27. I assume the amiibo will be priced at $24.99 in the USA.
