Nintendo has finally announced the long-awaited release date for Four Swords on the Nintendo 3DS and DSi. It will be available for free in the 3DS and DSi shops between September 28, 2011 and February 20, 2012. Rather than being a direct port of the game that was released with the Gameboy Advance version of A Link to the Past, the anniversary edition has some new features. These include new stages, some of which are based on The Legend of Zelda, A Link to the Past and Link’s Awakening. The multiplayer mode will be handled over wireless, with each player requiring their own copy of the game, but you can also play the game by yourself and have control over two Links.
Two new videos of this game have been released. One is a Japanese trailer for the game, and the other contains gameplay footage. Hit the jump to watch them!
