Zelda: Four Swords For DSiWare Gets A Release Date

In celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Zelda series, Nintendo will be releasing The Legend of Zelda: The Four Swords free of charge. The game will be available to download starting on September 28th for the Nintendo DSi and 3DS. [Update: According to the press release, the download will only be available until February 20th, 2012.]

The downloadable version of The Four Swords is not just a port of the Gameboy Advanced title. New stages from Link’s past have been added to the game. Nintendo also added a single player mode, which is a feature the original title was missing.

Check out the trailer below to see it in action.

  1. Yes! Brilliant.

    Annoyed it’s not native to the 3DS (or at least windowed) but it’s free, and the new stuff sounds amazing.

    • Wait – is this still early code? Most of the time there’s no shadows. I hate games with no shadows – even just the wee circles are good enough.

      Love the NES/GB sections!

      • wow, that’s attention to detail I would have never noticed lol

      • It’s the reason I can’t play the PSP Tony Hawk games without moaning – no shadows on the skaters. Annoys the hell out of me when just a wee circle will do fine.

      • I’m going to have to check if THUG2 Remix had shadows on the PSP…
        Seems there were shadows but only on some screenshots I just looked up… I never noticed.

      • I dont know why. But you guys talking about it really makes me want to go play Tony Hawks on PS2 again..

  2. This actually looks brilliant, its just a shame I only know one person with a DSi or 3DS, and even then I doubt he’d have any interest in this!

    • Good thing this has a single player mode then. Looks really good and love the A Link to the Past level. It’s my favourite Zelda game.

  3. Really? The DSi as well?
    Looks like I’ll have something non-Pokémon related to play then!
