Zelda: Four Swords free for 3DS and DSi gamers from 3DS eShop

summerjoosummerjoo

UPDATE: THIS IS LIVE NOW ! (28 SEPT) Enjoy!
I've just downloaded it from the Nintendo Dsi shop on my Dsi.
It has a single player and multiplayer option.
Single-Player Mode
In the single-player mode, you control two Links. Switch which Link is active by pressing the L and R Buttons, or call the other Link to your side by pressing the X Button, to safely move around together solving puzzles and avoiding traps.

Multiplayer Mode
To enjoy the game with 2 - 4 players, each player needs their own Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo DSi XL or Nintendo DSi system with the software downloaded to the system memory.



3DS and DSi gamers will be offered Game Boy Advance adventure Zelda: Four Swords for free in September, Nintendo has announced.

The multiplayer-focused game is being re-released without charge as part of this year's ongoing 25th Zelda Anniversary celebrations.
Nintendo are re-packaging it as DSiWare, meaning it'll be available to DSi gamers as well as to 3DS owners through the handheld's eShop.
Four Swords was initially released as a multiplayer add-on to the GBA re-make of A Link to the Past. This concept was later beefed out into a full game - The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventure - for GameCube.

    Hot! They're probably feeling extra sorry for us early adopters with 3DS deals popping up at sub £100 with cashback/voucher deals.

    Probably not feeling sorry, more concerned that any early adopters will start to feel certain emotions that could result in fewer or no further sales in terms of games or future platforms, which will affect their profits.

    Just saying, this is a business, not some empathetic human being.

    Plus, they will feel less concerned because as an early adopter into anything, you willingly take the risks associated with a product. Even if you do not accept it, by buying early in a product lifecycle you take that risk.

    This was announced at E3 as part of the Zelda 25th Anniversary, it has nothing to do with them feeling sorry for 3DS early adopters, even DSI owners are getting iot for free.

    Great game though can't wait to play it again.

    Obviously but its a mutual benefit to both parties.

    I think you got it wrong. I was confused and thought it was part of the Nintendo 3DS Ambassador freebies, but if DSi owners are getting it as well then it must mean all 3DS owners (even recent ones) will get it too.

    How is this a deal lol? No details other than it's going to happen next month, which isn't now. Can I pre-emptively post £5 game deals on their release?!

    Not trying to sound harsh, I just don't understand how this is a deal on here :s

    This is definitely up too early. It doesn't even have a solid release date yet, just some time in September.
    Still, can't wait, had a lot of fun on the original GBA release - hoping this will be online.

    Not quite, all of Nintendo's consoles are getting a Zelda game this year, this one is actually the DSi one (3DS got Ocarina of Time, Wii gets Skyward Sword) it just happens to be that the 3DS can play DSi games.

    it isn't a deal that's why it is in the freebie section !!
