Zelda Four Swords

Starting on January 30th, you can download The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Anniversary Edition for free in the Nintendo 3DS eShop. The game can be downloaded on either a 3DS or 2DS.

The Anniversary Edition is a remake of the Gameboy Advance title that was released as DSiWare back in 2011 as part of the celebration of the series’ 25th anniversary. It was free for a limited time back then as well. Anyone who hasn’t picked it up yet, should take advantage of this deal. A free Zelda game is hard to pass up.

This offer is only available until February 2 at 11:59 PM PST so don’t delay if you plan on downloading it.

If your curious about the game, see where it landed on Jonathan’s Top 10 Zelda Games. For further Zelda-related reading, we have reviews of A Link Between Worlds, Wind Waker HD, Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons and Skyward Sword, as well as an oprainfall Origins piece on Majora’s Mask. If that’s not enough, check out the Zelda Roundtable from episode 34 of the Downpour Podcast.

    haha, I misread that as Four Swords ADVENTURE, not Four Swords Anniversary, so I was going “wait wait, what?!” for a second.

    • Pyrotek85

      And I mistakenly thought it was LttP AND Four Swords like the GBA game, not just the latter. Oh well it’s still free, and fun.

    i saw this on the eShop and my jaw dropped. downloaded before -‘the changed thier mind.’ is this some how related to media’s oversaturation of ‘Nintendo needs to Mobile’ articles. You know? what’s the catch? Those articles state how often that Nintendo doesn’t have a candy crush… a free game that generates no revenue… when the article states that sales are down. When Wii U coming out a year early puts their installed console base 1.5 million ahead of Xbox One and PS4 and nothing is close to touching 3DS and DS sales…
