Become a legendary force to be reckoned with as you and your friends tackle dungeons and boss battles together in The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes, coming exclusively to the Nintendo 3DS on Oct. 23. The game is displayed in the same top-down style as the critically acclaimed The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. You and your friends will solve puzzles as a team and earn new abilities to enhance your adventure.
You will be exploring the Kingdom of Hytopia, a fashion-obsessed realm in which an evil witch has placed a mysterious curse upon Princess Styla. As you can imagine, this has cast the realm into disarray, with citizens calling for the return of a legendary trio of “Totem Heroes” to protect them, and a nice hefty reward for whoever can lift the curse. And not only that, don’t forget to restore peace and stylishness to the land!
The game contains 36 outfits and each comes with its own special abilities that help the three Link characters solve puzzles and navigate difficult terrain. “Goron Garb” (allows Link to swim in lava) and the “Zora Costume” (improves swimming speed in water) are two examples.
You can play in solo mode along with two paper doll-like figures called “Doppels,” or you can go online in multiplayer mode and partner with two other players who also own the game. You can choose to team up with a combination of players who are and are not part of your Nintendo 3DS friend list. Download Play also allows you to connect locally with two other friends who own a system in the Nintendo 3DS family, even if only one person has the game. Only by working as a team will you be able to successfully make it through the trials lying in wait, but for those who master an area, bonus challenges can be unlocked for access to more valuable rewards.
