Nintendo America Reconfirms Zelda: Tri Force Heroes Launches On October 23


Nintendo 3DS owners looking to embark on a legendary adventure will get their chance when The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes launches for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems on October 23rd. One of Nintendo’s biggest critical hits at this summer’s E3 video game trade show, The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes lets up to three players team up locally, via Download Play with one game card or online using a wireless Internet connection to cooperatively explore inventive dungeons and battle bosses.

The Legend of Zelda is one of Nintendo’s most storied and beloved franchises, selling more than 30 million games in the U.S. alone. In The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes, up to three players play as Link, with each hero selecting a different outfit equipped with a special boost or ability. One outfit might grant the wearer the ability to shoot arrows, for example, while another could provide more life-saving hearts. A new Totem mechanic allows three Link characters to stack on top of each other to reach higher ground and solve puzzles. The game can also be played solo, allowing one player to rent two paper dolls to take along to complete the legendary team of three.

The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes is one of many fun Nintendo 3DS games launching between now and the end of the year, including Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon (Holiday), Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer (Sept. 25), Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash (Oct. 9) and Japanese sensation YO-KAI WATCH (Holiday).

    1. Just a Star Fox fan.

      What you mean by “canon” the whole timeline thing they came up with was stupid thing that makes no sense at all to shut up fans, what about we start appreciate Zelda games as individual works again instead of trying to connect them all together when Nintendo not even themselfs cared about connecting these games when making them.

      Anyways, i will probably pass on this, its just a spinoff title and not a traditional Zelda game.

      1. I enjoy the official timeline. I’ll stick by it til Nintendo either changes it or adds to it. If Triforce Heroes is by some chance canon, I wonder where it will be placed.

        1. I also thought the timeline was pretty cool. I mean, Zelda didn’t really have or need a timeline since basically every game except Zelda II and Majora’s Mask are basically reboots. But the timeline added a nice touch to “sort of” tie up loose ends concerning the games.

          Regardless, there hasn’t been a non-cannon Zelda game unless you count the CDI and Tingle Ruppee whatever games. So this will probably be Canon and it’s going to be interesting to see where it fits in. Luckily I’ll get paid the 20th so I’ll probably pick it up shortly after it releases depending on if I decide to get some other games I’ve been wanting.

          1. *facepalm* Reboots=remakes. How the hell are most Zelda games that aren’t direct sequels remakes exactly? I honestly don’t get why there is a minority of people that believe this theory. There is more than enough stuff to connect these games that the “it’s all just one big reboot” theory is completely absurd.

            1. Reboots and remakes aren’t the same. A remake is like Majora’s mask 3d. They redo the game with different features and more content. A reboot is where the game series basically starts over like sonic 06 was supposed to be.

              I said each new game is “basically a reboot” When you really boil it down, it’s link becoming a hero and saving hyrule. Each time it’s a different game with the same basic story just retold a little differently. I understand that it’s the hero’s spirit being reborn and all, and each game ties into the other ones in a timeline with evidence to back them up. but it’s basically a reboot of the same story. And yes, if it was in fact a true reboot it would have a different timeline and be independent of all the other Zelda games and I in no way think of each game as a series reboot, but when you truly think about it, each game is kind of it’s own mini reboot of the story. Same spirit, same story, but a different link on a different adventure.
