Tri Force Heroes Ultimate Costumes Guide: How to Dress for Success

With the number of costumes in Zelda: Tri Force Heroes, picking out just the right one can be daunting.

Link's latest adventure in The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes takes place in the fashionable kingdom of Hytopia. Humbly residing among the townsfolk is a magical tailor that crafts powerful costumes unlike any before her.

Unlike her jealous sister, Madame Conture has a strong sense of style and will craft any costume that Link can provide the materials for. Collecting materials for every outfit available in the game is an arduous task, but the array of costumes available once you are finished is well worth the effort.
