How to Get the Twilight Armor in Breath of the Wild

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

The Legend of Zelda: The Breath of the Wild is a game that’s filled with secrets, and some of those secrets happen to be hidden inside amiibo figures. For example, by scanning these figures, you can collect gear that gives Link classic looks from other Zelda games (including my favorite, No-Pants Link from the old game manuals).

One of the gear sets that’s eluding many players is the Twilight gear set from Twilight Princess. Many have assumed that this armor set would be unlocked with a future amiibo figure.

Those people are wrong; the gear is actually tied to the original Link amiibo from Super Smash Bros. This amiibo depicts the Twilight Princess version of Link, which is obvious from the dark green color, the longer cap, the tall boots, and the wrist guards.

Now, the first time you scan this amiibo figure, Epona will spawn. You can take her to a stable to register her and make her an official part of your horse army. As long as Epona is registered to a stable, scanning this amiibo figure causes treasure to drop, just like most of the other figures (you’ll have to wait a day between scans, of course). There’s a chance — albeit a very, very small one —  that this treasure will include a piece of Twilight gear.

Thus far, I’ve managed to acquire the Cap of Twilight, but nothing else. I’ll keep you updated about my progress, and good luck on your own attempts at trying to collect one of the rarest gear sets in Breath of the Wild.
