The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords 3DS Release Date Confirmed

September 13, 2011


Back at Nintendo’s press conference at E3, they announced that The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords would be seeing a release on the DSiWare/eShop service as a free game to celebrate Zelda’s 25th Anniversary.  During Nintendo’s 3DS Conference that occurred late last night/early this morning, they announced that Four Swords will be released on September 28th.  There’s a slight catch however…

Rockin' the NES visual style

Apparently the game will be available from September 28th until February 20th, 2012.  Whether that means if the game will then be charged a certain price or will be removed from the store remains to be confirmed.  Either way, 3DS and DSi/DSiXL owners have no excuse not to get this free downloadable title within the 6 months that it will be available for download.  The full press release with more details can be viewed here.  Excited for the remastered Four Swords?  Sound off in the comments!

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! why did you ruin the game Nintendo it was great the way it was. If you keep doing this i will give up on zelda forever. Anyway if it looks like your picture i might not get it. no offense to you.


    • Person Says:

      Sigh…. Since when does graphics make the game? Shut up and go back to Call of Duty.


      • concrete donkey Says:

        there are a few things wrong with that
        1. the person you are commenting on thinks (incorrectly) that the above pic is from the main game, when in reality the post above me is correct, and most of the game is in gba graphics.
        2. what is wrong with call of duty, everyone criticizes it when i don’t see anything wrong about it (of course i buy the new ones after the price goes down cuz they’re not really my favorite series) but what is wrong with reusing the same game engine per each game? i mean would you keep buying zelda if every game ran on the same engine? if yes than i believe you are criticizing something you don’t know s**t about and are believing in the incorrect stereotype that call of duty is “the same game every time there is a new one released”

      The game can be played with nes, gameboy,, gameboy advanced, and super nintendo graphics.


    • TradeMark Says:

      It’s just a section within the game. This is the Legend of Zelda 25th anniversary edition of the game, so they added some levels that had the style of old Zelda games, the pic being done in the style of the very first Legend of Zelda, an NES game.


    • Minol Says:

      those aren’t the proper graphics


    • nick Says:

      It’s free. If I have to explain why it’s silly to complain about free video games, I don’t want to live on this planet anymore.


  2. Bewoulff2000 Says:

    I love how its free and that I can play with my friends who have the 3ds and the ones with the dsi


  3. battousairyu007 Says:

    I think it is free till Feb.20th… Kind of like when they released Excite Bike 3D for free, but only for a limited time.


  4. Zelda4lyfe Says:

    The picture is just part of an extra you get after beating the game. I don’t know why whoever wrote this would put “There’s a slight catch however.” It’s misleading. The game is awesome, and even more awesome if you have multiple players, hence the concept of Four Swords.


    • Glacier928 Says:

      “There’s a slight catch however…” was geared toward the opening sentence of the following paragraph stating that it’s only free for a limited time. It was not aimed toward the screenshot that shows off the NES graphic style. If you notice the caption with the screenshot, I’m all for the extra visual filters they added. Regardless, the game truly is a blast to play with multiple people!
