The Legend Of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes Won’t Have Voice Chat

The new Legend of Zelda game, Tri Force Heroes, allows you to play multiplayer either locally or online, but if you were hoping for voice chat whilst playing online then you’re going to be disappointed. During the latest Nintendo Treehouse segement at E3, they confirmed that the game won’t be supporting voice chat. Do you think this will effect the game massively at all?

Thanks, MasterPikachu6

      1. I’m sorry, but how do you play a multiplayer PUZZLE video game without voice chat? Isn’t there a need to discuss and figure out and plan what each person has to do?

    1. If this is not important in a fucking high speed puzzle game, I don’t know where it is. What when you understand what you have to do and the other two people don’t? Do you just go around making different emoticons and hope they get it??? What? I really feel like Nintendo is being retarded on purpose. They cannot seriously be this stupid for this long.

  1. Not surprising, it’s Nintendo after all. Personally I thought the emoticons they have instead were cute enough. I don’t think it’ll make too much of a difference. Hopefully, at least

    1. Are you serious? This is a game heavily based on precise teamwork and cooperation, communication is important. Do you know how frustrating it can be when a team mate doesn’t seem to know what they’re supposed to do, or keep doing things wrong and you can’t assist them by telling what they should do? Happened to me a couple of times in other games, even in the original Four Swords, which I’ve played with friends in the same room, there were times someone kept doing something wrong; situations like that are proof for voice chat being very important in games like this. Emoticons are, obviously, not a sufficient compensation for the lack of an actual voice chat feature.

      1. Yea… Here we go again, haha. I wish you good luck, and when times get rough, remember: you’re not alone on your journey of criticizing the lack of voice chat, lmao.

      2. Wait, the game only features online multiplayer with friends? So to be able to fully enjoy the game, at least 3 of my friends need to own the game? That doesn’t really make the situation any better, but rather worse, lmao.

      3. My bad, mixed it up with Four Swords. And honestly, I don’t expect the singleplayer to be too in-depth because the focus obviously seems to be on multiplayer, so I still need my friends to own the game to get the full experience, which is an absolute shame in this day and age. But at least you can set up Skype with them, as you’ve said, lmao. Definitely no compensation for lack of voice chat and random matchmaking, though.

      1. I am not buying Federation Force and I’m not downloading Animal Crossing Party U. *I’m definitely sending Nintendo a message regarding those games.* I will buy Star Fox, Paper Mario Paper Jam and the new 3DS Zelda game though, because I don’t mind supporting these games.

        I’m not really even a huge supporter of voice chat anyway, I just know other people advocate for it all the time and consider it a mandatory function of online multiplayer games.

      1. Doesn’t matter if it was good or bad, he said that Nintendo doesn’t KNOW how to even code voicechat, I gave 2 examples of Nintendo coding voicechat, it’s as simple as that.

      2. Its not fully implemented and their excuse is laughable. Activision managed to do it with their CoD Games on Wii U but somehow Nintendo “won’t.”

    1. Actually both Sony and MS have phenomenal Voice Chat features in their games, the don’t need to use Skype to play an online game. Nintendo Gamers on the other hand, they’re forced to use a 3rd party app to chat.

    1. NX will need a strong launch line up, plenty of 1st, 2nd AND 3rd Party support, key franchises that Nintendo fans love, a competitive price point and lots of advertising in order to succeed properly. If they don’t do these things, then the NX will either be a tiny success, or a not successful at all. Nintendo don’t need these things to stay alive as a company, they need these things to bring back the faith in 3rd Parties and most importantly, potential buyers of the system. 3DS is a prime example this generation. The things that turned it around from a failure to a success story, was loads of great exclusive titles (A Link Between Worlds, Animal Crossing New Leaf, Mario Kart 7, Super Mario 3D Land, etc) A competitive price (I’m sure they dropped the price,) loads of advertising and key franchises(3D Mario, 2D Mario, Mario Kart, Zelda, Animal Crossing, Fire Emblem.) Nintendo needs to learn from the 3DS’s main 1 and a half years of dominance (mid 2012-end of 2013) (It is still dominating to this day, just not as much as that 1 and a half year timespan, but it is still going really strong.)And use that knowledge in planning out how to handle the NX. The NX will have potential to sell Wii numbers, if Nintendo does everything right.

  2. I get that it’s Nintendo and they’re allergic to voice chat, but this is truthfully a mistake. I’ve been playing the Gamecube Four Swords game with my brother the last couple weeks and communication is essential to solving some of the puzzles. If we couldn’t talk to each other, we’d probably still be on level 1. Can you design a game that’s easy enough that you don’t have to coordinate with your teammates? Absolutely. Would that be kind of lame? Yeah.

  6. It’s too hectic a game for voice chat to be of much use at all. But then again, that can be said for a lot of games. why anyone would bemoan the lack of an aural portal to hell itself is beyond me.

  7. I just played a demo of this at Best Buy with two other people. Even WITH voice chat, this was tricky. We even needed to point on-screen to where one of the other guys needed to walk to progress. Without communication, this will be shit.

  8. Voice chat is one feature that I will never (as long as I live) understand why anybody wants. Even when they explain it to me, I still think it’s a stupid and unnecessary feature. And I always laugh when people complain about a game not having voice chat. For me, that’s like hearing that the game won’t feature real people. Like……WHO CARES?

  10. Great. Splatoon, I can partly understand why voice chat wasn’t a big issue for Nintendo even though it still should have been, but this game!? There is nothing worse than playing an online game that definitely requires strategizing with your teammates & having no way to even actually strategize. Unless this game has the ability for us to at least text speak with our teammates, this is very bad. But why am I not surprised! There are still fucking idiots defending the “no voice chat” stance! Don’t bother even typing your shit defenses to me! I’m not in the fucking mood for it! Fuck you, fuck Nintendo, & fuck all of yours & theirs excuses! It’s bullshit! All bullshit! Please, don’t waste your time! Just go back to riding Nintendo’s dick silently & kindly FUCK OFF!!
