    For anyone that's interested, if you have wolf link you can control him by focusing on him and make him stay.

    I wish someone could find a way to edit the Wolf Link Amiibo hearts on an Amiibo that's never been used on a Wii U. It seems like someone could make a driver to be able to connect the joycon to your PC with Bluetooth and use the NFC on it to edit Amiibo.

    You can use an android device with NFC to flash the wolf link amiibo but only if you already have 1 heart saved to the amiibo. A fresh new wolf link amiibo will not work.

    Alternatively you can flash a 20 heart amiibo bin to any NFC215 tag or powertag, this method is reported working with the switch.

    I have the wolf link amiibo but don't have a WII U to prep it with. So I am currently waiting for some NFC tags from aliexpress.

    I have found the 3 heart wolf link indispensable. He has saved my ass many times over even with just 3 hearts. Those broken guardian heads are easy prey for him if I just stand somewhere and shoot it with arrows while letting wolf link attack lol.

    Fuck it, I can't wait for my NTAGs, I loaded up TPHD in Cemu emulator, loaded my wolf link dump bin, gonna grind to 6th level to save some hearts to wolf link so I can edit it in tagmo. Game actually plays pretty damn good!

    aw man, I made it to the 6th level, saved my hearts to the nfc bin file, restored it to my wolf link amiibo. Everything worked except for the fact that cemu doesn't have write support yet. No profit.

    Also they totally messed up Midna in TPHD, the helmet is covering the wrong eye.

    This is in the game:

    This is the amiibo which also matches all the artwork I've found online:

    The Wii and GameCube version of the game are mirrored so could have something to do with that.

    Not to say you can't, but probably not. Nobody has found a way as of yet. So dust off that Wii U!

    I have Twilight Princess installed on my Wii U, but haven't played it once because I recently played it in glorious 1080p using Dolphin. I just scan the wolf link and then I can go through the dungeon minigame? :)

    I just bought wolf link amiibo, BotW for the Switch, and have a CFW Wii U, so can anyone walk me through this?

    I thought Dolphin was for GC and Wii, does it support Wii U now? Does it have NFC write capability? Cemu works awesome but can only read NFC not write yet. If you haven't played it on Wii U then you will either have to play it to get 20 hearts or load up a saviine or Cemu save file, then tap the amiibo and it will port you to the dungeon. Then just fight until level 6 which takes all of 5 minutes, talk to Midna to exit the dungeon and then it will give you the option to save your hearts to the amiibo. Profit.

    Get the 20 hearts save from here, tap the amiibo to enter the dungeon, fight to level 6 (hold B button to charge your attack then release to hit multiple enemies), Talk to Midna to exit the dungeon, save hearts to amiibo, profit.

    Here is a good tutorial

    Here is a video of the Cave of Shadows:

    He means he played the GC or Wii version with Dolphin's upscaling capabilities.

    Is there already a file available for a 20heart wolf link to flash to a N215 tag?

    That part should be on the rewritable part, so can I update my sticker with tagmo?

    I used the powersaves powertag for it.

    Tagmo is for using NFC on an Android device to write to NTAG215 or Amiibitz for N2/Elite.
    The amiibo bin can be used on any device that can write a 540 byte NTAG215.

    You do not need the USB writer if you have an Android phone with NFC.

    I have TagMo set up on my phone, its been installed for ever, keys are in place, used it a few times in the past. Now a few days ago I flashed a Wolf link, and saw it was not as useful with 3 hearths and you told me about the leveling up of it through my Wii U. I had problems loading in a 20 heart savegame on my Wii U for Zelda:TP. But I found tagmo can update an existing Amiibo or NFC tag with a savegame(backedup amiibo) from the internet. Load the bin file with the 20 heart wolf, allow restore to different tag, and then the restore button instead of the write button.

    Did you previously use your wolf Link amiibo on the Wii u? I already tried restoring to my amiibo but since I don't have a Wii u to initialize the app data section I cannot restore to it.
