A Closer Look into The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes
During this year's E3 conference, Nintendo announced their new Legend of Zelda installment called Tri Force Heroes. This Nintendo 3DS exclusive game will feature a new multiplayer experience never before seen in a Zelda game.
How is this different from the Four Swords?
Well the Legend of Zelda: Four Swords game features a more competitive multiplayer experience, where the players compete against each other to have more rupees at the end of each level. Within this new game, Tri Force Heroes, you can play with up to three people and you all share the same health bar. The puzzles are seemingly also focused on this cooperative play, where you must work together to succeed. Being in full communication with each other will boost the user experience, while also keeping this hectic game under control.
A really cool feature about this new game involves costume outfits that you can dress Link with. A few examples include a the Kokiri Clothes, and a frilly Princess Zelda dress. There are a six in total, and each one has different attributes; the Kokiri Clothes give Link the ability to shoot up to three arrows at one time. Another feature is selecting items at the beginning of each stage. There are three possible items and the options will change depending on the stage. Some examples include in the Forest stage, and how there are three Bows available, whereas in the Volcano stage, there is a Gust Jar, Bow, and the Boomerang.
One of the new mechanics that is extremely useful with the 3D in this game is the Totem set-up that requires all three players to stack upon one another to reach an item or switch that is too high. The mechanic works very well with the 3D, so that players can see if the ledge needs an extra or all three participants, and also works with boss battles.
The game will support an online multiplayer abilities along with local. If you want to play the game and your friends aren't too into Zelda, there is single-player where the A.I Links turn into paper dolls to control.
When will the game be available?
Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes will be available Fall of 2015.
