The Legend of Zelda TriForce Heroes is a 3DS exclusive

Good news for anyone that owns, or will own, a Nintendo 3DS this year. Nintendo will take players on another legendary adventure with “The Legend of Zelda: TriForce Heroes,” a new game set to launch for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems on Oct. 23.

One of Nintendo’s biggest critical hits at this summer’s E3 video game trade show, The Legend of Zelda: TriForce Heroes lets up to three players team up locally, via Download Play with one game card or online using a wireless Internet connection to cooperatively explore inventive dungeons and battle bosses.

The Legend of Zelda is one of Nintendo’s most storied and beloved franchises, selling more than 30 million games in the U.S. alone. In The Legend of Zelda: TriForce Heroes, up to three players play as Link, with each hero selecting a different outfit equipped with a special boost or ability. One outfit might grant the wearer the ability to shoot arrows, for example, while another could provide more life-saving hearts.

A new Totem mechanic allows three Link characters to stack on top of each other to reach higher ground and solve puzzles. The game can also be played solo, allowing one player to rent two paper dolls to take along to complete the legendary team of three.

The Legend of Zelda: TriForce Heroes is one of many fun Nintendo 3DS games launching between now and the end of the year, including Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon (Holiday), Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer (Sept. 25), Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash (Oct. 9) and Japanese sensation YO-KAI WATCH (Holiday).
