We know that The Legend of Zelda: Tri-Force Heroes will be playable online, but what we didn’t know is that the online play will be region locked. This means that you will only be able to team up with people from your region. So if you’re from the UK and you have got a friend in the United States you won’t be able to team up with them. Kinda disappointing news, but it should help with latency.
“…You can only play with people on the same region. That should help with latency issues, but is a shame if you wanted to play with friends from around the world.”
“Also, there’s no voice support. When we played, we had to use Skype to communicate. You can send quick emoji-like messages (“over here!” “Totem up” “Item!”) which should help out, but if someone doesn’t understand the puzzle or how to defeat a boss it will be infuriating.”
