The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap (GBA / Game Boy Advance)

Game Profile

Link returns in an all-new Game Boy Advance SP adventure!

When the sorcerer Vaati turns Princess Zelda™ to stone, the king of Hyrule sends Link on a quest that will take him to places he's never imagined. Using the power of a mystical hat called the Minish Cap, the Hylian hero will shrink down for a massive quest...on a microscopic scale!

  • Small Link...huge adventure! Meet the Minish - a miniature race who secretly work to make the world a better place - and discover the challenges of being Minish-sized: Battle massive enemies and then shrink down and attack them from within! Insurmountable blockades are nothing to you when you're the size of the Minish!
  • Draw your sword! As you wander a vast world, battle never-before-seen enemies, explore baffling dungeons and use new items like the hole-digging Mole Mitts, the jar-flipping Cane of Pacci and the Gust Jar, a Minish artifact that can fire out what it inhales! Zelda veterans will find new levels of challenge that tie together aspects of all the Zelda games into intricate new puzzles and boss battles.
  • Fuse the Kinstone pieces! Unravel the secrets of magical relics called Kinstones: By fusing the Kinstone pieces together with different people, you can solve puzzles and unlock secrets!

Ooo, I smell a review. Unfortunately I never had a chance to play it and used copies are hard to come by.



Ark said:

I'd highly recommend tracking it down if you can. Dungeon-wise it's a little shorter than some of the other games but it's probably my favorite 2D Zelda. Ezlo certainly adds something. Oh, and you might want to make sure your L/R buttons work...



Curt said:

I'd also recommend this game. It was one of the most creative with the items, and even if it was a bit short, has excellent replay value.



Roopa132 said:

I love this game!
Hopefully there'll be a review.
I mean I already have it but I still want one



Hawker said:

This is one of the few Zelda games I've not beaten yet. I got to the final boss, but then I got a game called Guild Wars & was stuck on that for 4 yrs. I'll need to start this game up again & finally beat it.



grumblegrumble said:

Yay! You guys finally listened to me and are gonna review this soon... right? riiight? Well, I hope you do, since it's my favorite GBA game ever! --and one of my favorite (and certainly the cutest and prettiest) Zelda games, to boot! I give it a 10/10! Because it's awesome like that



citizenerased said:

The best GBA game ever is either Rhythm Tengoku or WarioWar Twisted, but this one definitely belongs in the top 3 with 'em



Zelda42 said:

I really want to play this game, but people sell them as collectors items now, so they are really expensive. I am mad, and they never have them at a video game store... I have tears now.



Geonjaha said:
