You Can Only Get One Costume Through Zelda: Tri Force Heroes Via Local Multiplayer

Collectors amongst you might not be too pleased to learn that one of the costumes you will be able to collect in The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes will only be obtainable via local multiplayer mode. The Zelda themed spin-off title includes 30 costumes for you to collect. When playing local multiplayer, or alternatively download play, you can get an item called “proof of friendship”. 4Gamer says that you will get  one “proof” per friend’s system and an unspecified amount is needed in order to obtain the special costume.

4Gamer: I’ll change the subject a bit, but please tell me about a matter that is on my mind. You need items called “proof of friendship” in creating a special costume, but can you get those in single player?

Shikata: You get them only if you play together with other people locally or with Download Play.

Aonuma: Generally speaking, you’d want to play the multiplayer. This time everyone can play with just one copy of the game via Download Play as long as you have three systems. Playing noisily with other people is the greatest flavor of this Zelda and you’d want to experience it. I think it can be hard to gather people if you’re an adult, but I’d like people to try to come and play together in order to collect proofs of friendship.

4Gamer: To confirm: you don’t get proof of friendship when playing online?

Shikata: That’s true. You don’t get them when playing online.

4Gamer: It seems like it is good to have a reward for people who gather together and experience the local play.

Aonuma: Yes. Be sure to invite friends and play together.

    It’s a reward for those that can do this but a punishment for those that can’t. Shame on you, Nintendo.

  2. There’s gonna be folks that, however they figure it out, make some Zelda loving friends because of this. The lazy ones will complain hahaha I’m glad I have friends with 3ds’s in my friends circle..

  3. When will Nintendo acknowledge that America/Europe is not like Japan and we don’t have random people (or people at all) we can play local with all the time, if any. Thankfully it’s only one costume, but I feel all content should be made available in-game in one-player mode even if they made it very hard to earn.

  4. I don’t see what the big deal is. Local multiplayer is an aspect of the game. In return for playing it, you’ll eventually get a costume. It’s not like you have to pay more out of pocket after purchasing the main game. You don’t even need to purchase more than one copy of the game to experience this. It’s more an incentive for playing what is included in the game, and what the creators are trying to push in doing this–bringing people together locally. Sure it may suck if we don’t have friends to play with and we can only play online, but then again it’s only a costume, and a reward for those who will play this part of the game.
    Just look at it as an achievement.
