Brand new The Legend of Zelda content is planned for a Miitomo campaign via Twitter, and a Nintendo eShop sale is coming up in North America.

Ahead of the start of E3 2016 next week, Nintendo has revealed a new Twitter campaign starting today to get new items from The Legend of Zelda added to Miitomo.

A series of tweets have been shared by Nintendo, which are included below; 10,000 total retweets will gift the "Link's new hair" wig to Miitomo users, while 20,000 retweets will unlock a more traditional Link wig.

In addition, from 14 June, new Zelda-themed stages will be added to Miitomo Drop, featuring items from the new Wii U entry; at the same time, a new item will be added to the Miitomo shop, and My Nintendo points can be redeemed for the item as well.

Also running from 14 June to 21 June, a Nintendo eShop sale will begin in North America, and My Nintendo users will be able to receive an additional bonus for buying certain discounted titles.

E3 2016 runs from 14 June to 16 June.

If you're on Twitter and want the new Miitomo gifts, be sure to retweet the following tweets without adding a comment to add to the total retweet count!
