The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes (JP) is a Legend of Zelda game, released for the Nintendo 3DS in 2015. It utilizes A Link Between Worlds' engine to have a 3-player co-op dungeon-based game, reminiscent of the Four Swords games. The game also uses an outfit system that gives abilities to the player's Link based on his outfit.


The core format of the gameplay is that 3 players work together (through either dolls, download play or over the Nintendo Network) to solve the dungeon's puzzles.

The lower screen has 8 commands to help communicate between players. The three players can pick each other up to create a totem to tackle higher up switches and enemies.The team's health is shared so each mistake costs the team.

The game is set in Hytopia, a kingdom where the citizens are obsessed with fashion. Princess Styla once held a great power over Hytopia, until she receives a gift, which is actually a curse from a witch that forces Styla to wear an ugly black jumpsuit. King Tuft, Styla's father, is devastated over the curse and needs a hero to save her from it; he sends out the call for the hero, but lots gather, claiming to be the one. However, the king believes that the true hero is one who fulfills a prophecy in Hytopia that tells of three heroes uniting to form a totem, and that hero ends up being Link.



The 2.0 version came out on December 2/3. This update included a new dungeon called the Den of Trials. It features 30 stages with the players needing to defeat all the enemies to move on, but there are savepoints to mark progress. There are two new costumes in Linebeck's Uniform and Fierce Deity Mail. Friendly Tokens are now available for purchase but only if you've beaten the game first. There's a question system to help match more like-minded players and a new system to blacklist players who quit mid-game. There's also new Miiverse stamps.
