One of the biggest innovations brought to the rather divisive The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes was the introduction of costumes. Swappable outfits that bestow various special abilities upon the wearer, these added a refreshing amount of diversity to the gameplay and helped add another layer of strategy to proceedings. While there's already evidence that there will be more costumes made available as DLC someday, it appears that some content was also left on the cutting room floor.
Data miners have recently uncovered evidence in the game's code of an unused costume that appears to resemble Great Fairies from The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. You can see some footage of it below; it doesn't do anything, but nonetheless it makes one wonder why it was cut. Take a look:
What do you think? Will this resurface in the future as DLC or is it out for good? What abilities do you think it would've had if it were left in? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
Hell, its the Great FAIRY costume. It probably just gave you an extra fairy life, which they might have thought have been too easy or something.
Costumes are being called an innovation now?
At this point it's quite clear that game industry and game journalism have ruined the word innovation. It no longer means anything in its definition here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Innovation
It just means "a feature that's in the game".
Nice Zelda II reference. It would grant him the ability to fly for the duration of one screen of course and maybe heal him.
If Nintendo keeps the way thy are now, it'll probably be DLC later... which should concern people since this was already in the game first and now it has been removed.
Regardless though, this may be the first licensed Zelda game I'll never own.
@mjc0961 in the context of Zelda, costumes with abilities are an innovation. You never had the opportunity to wear anything other than basic tunics for protection.
@ikki5 well, they can't use it without updating it, since link looks completely different.
@Morpheel the masks from majoras mask?
@Tindre similar concepts. Kinda different from these costumes.
You forgot there's also special tunics in some games.
@Morpheel I didn't forget but maybe you did? but yeah there has been costumes that changes abilities in the past, not to this (ridiculus) extent but
