Zelda: Four Swords to Be a Free DSiWare Game in September

Posted by James Newton


Nintendo just announced as part of its Zelda: 25th Anniversary package the release of Legend of Zelda: Four Swords for DSiWare in September this year.

The four-player game will be a free download to all DSiWare users, presumably meaning it'll be available for nothing in the 3DS eShop too.

Are you excited about playing more Zelda: Four Swords on DSiWare?

im still pretty confused as to how dsiware will look on the 3DS screen. can you hold start and select to play it in its original resolution like DS games?

@2: That's what I've heard.

This is awesome! Is it the same as the GameCube version?



Dodger said:

Sweet, I can play this with my sister or dad now. That will be cool.

this might have been my favorite bit of news from the presentation, but slightly disappointed that it's not 3DSware

It will clearly be the GBA version, so it's cool but not the 4 Swords announcement I was looking for (WiiU!). However, the big questions are: local or wifi? and, new content or direct port?

Now pleaase, announce single-download play with regular DS's, too!!

I hope the redesign the system so that you can connect locally or even play by yourself.

Is this the original Four swords or a new entry? Cool that it is free, though a strange choice that they chose DSiware over 3DSware. Hopefully you can also play it alone.

@revoc: no, they said free at the conference today. :3

that said, if they don't include a single-player option in this, please for the love of all that's holy, Nintendo, allow us to use wi-fi to find fellow players! i would love nothing more than to be able to play a game like this with friends, and I don't know anyone around with a DSi to play it with me



TeeJay said:

Maybe I can challenge myself by downloading this on both my 3DS and DSi and playing 2 player by myself. O_o

No way will it have WiFi multiplayer. Nintendo doesn't typically like to do awesome things like that, especially for free.

I 3rd the internet four player hopes. We could start NLife 4 swords clubs (because I cannot find 3 others to play with me). Internet+voice chat on a free game seems to be too much to ask for though.

doesn't work... I tried this with the original release and two GBAs... it's impossible to solve certain puzzles like pulling things from two different sides.
