Those other horses are nice, but…

As those of you playing Breath of the Wild know by now, there’s no shortage of horses than be captured and tamed in the game. It’s handy, but also a bit weird since Link has pretty much had the same horse since the beginning of the series.

If you just can’t get over the nagging feeling that something’s missing, you may be thrilled to know there is a way to make Epona prance into your game. All you need to do is pick up the Link Amiibo from the Super Smash Bros. series, which you can score on Amazon for about $34. Just pop it open, scan it with your Joycon or Pro Controller, and Epona should appear in your game instantly. Good to see you, girl!
