Nintendo confirmed during their Treehouse Live presentation today that The Legend of Zelda: Triforce Heroes will have full Download Play support (including all content being playable even if you don’t have the game). This goes along with the game’s local and online multiplayer, as well as a single player mode if you prefer a solo adventure. I’m glad for the single player mode, as the multiplayer-only design of the original GBA Four Swords game was a bit stupid really.

This, along with Hyrule Warriors: Legends should help keep us busy during the rest of the long wait for the Wii U Zelda game, which is set to come out sometime in 2016. The Legend of Zelda: Triforce Heroes is set to launch this fall, while Hyrule Warriors: Legends is planning a 2016 launch.

 

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.

    This game looks far more interesting to me than Legends, which seems just a portable port of Hyrule Warriors. Love the suits, and the gameplay looks like a more polished version of Four Swords. Love when Nintendo surprises us with stuff like this.

      They both look pretty good to me, but if I had to choose, I’d say I’m more interested in Hyrule Warriors Legends… especially the fact that they’re putting a Wind Waker storyline in there.
