    Explore Hyrule and the miniature land of the Minish.

    Don the Minish Cap to shrink Link™ down for his most massively microscopic adventure ever! Mere blades of grass will tower over your head as you explore Hyrule, conquering enemies, puzzles, dungeons and bosses as you go. Along the way, you’ll wield powerful items, fuse magic Kinstones and befriend the elusive Minish to stop the evil sorcerer Vaati.

    The Minish Cap plays a pivotal part in the Four Swords storyline of the Legend of Zelda™ series, and is the first and only game in which Link explores the land of the Minish—a tiny, mysterious kingdom on the very surface of Hyrule. That makes this unique entry in the Zelda series a must-play for new and old fans alike. Inventive items like the Mole Mitts and Gust Jar give Link powers he’ll need to use wisely if he wants to save the puzzling world of Hyrule and the miniature land of the Minish. When there’s a princess to save, a bad guy to beat, and you’re THIS small, the stakes will never be higher.

    The Door to the Picori World is about to open. Every 100 years, the small Picori come to visit the Kingdom of Hyrule that they once saved from Darkness. But this year, the terrible Vaati cast a spell on Princess Zelda and ruined the party. To save his childhood friend, Link must unite with Ezlo, a strange talking cap, to shrink himself to the size of a Picori and explore a world where the smallest puddle becomes a terrible swamp.

    Das Tor zur welt der Minish steht bald offen! Alle 100 Jahre besuchen dann die winzigen Minish das Königreich Hyrule, welches sie einst vor dem Untergang bewahrten. Doch dieses Jahr belegt Vaati Prinzessin Zelda mit einem Fluch! Link, ihr Freund, will sie retten und trifft Ezelo, eine sprechende Mütze! Mit Hilfe der mysteriösen Mütze kann er auf Minish-Größe schrumpfen und eine Welt erforschen, in der Pfützen zu riesigen Meeren werden!

    La porte vers le monde des Minish est dur le point de s’ouvrir. Tous les 100 ans, les petits Minish viennent visiter le Royaume d’Hyrule qu’ils sauvèrent jadis des ténèbres. Mais cette année, le terrible Vaati lance un sort à la princesse Zelda et gâche la fête. Pour sauver son amie d’enfance, Link doit s’associer à Exelo pour devenir aussi petit qu’un Minish et explorer un monde où la plus petite des flaques devient un dangerous marais.

    De deur naar de Minish Wereld staat op het punt geopend te worden. Elke 100 jaar bezoeken de Minish het koninkrijk Hyrule. Maar dit jaar heeft de kwaadaardige Vaati prinses Zelda betoverd en het feest verpest. Om zijn jeugdvriendinnetje te helpen krijgt Link hulp van Ezlo, een vreemde pratende hoed, die hem zo klein maakt als de Minish. Hij bezoekt een wereld waar zelfs de kleinste plas het formaat heeft van een angstaanjagend moeras.

    La puerta que comunica con el mundo minish está a punto de abrirse. Cada 100 años, los pequeños minish visitan el reino de Hyrule, que una vez salvaron del mar. Pero en las fiestas de este año, el terrible Vaati ha lanzado un maleficio sobre la princesa Zelda... Para salvarla, Link se valdrá de Ezero. Este curiose gorro parlante le ayudará a menguar para adentrarse en un mundo en el que una simple gota de agua es todo un obstáculo...

    Varca la soglia del mondo Finish… Ogni cent’anni, Hyrule attende con trepidazione l’arrivo dei Finish, i minuscoli benefattori che un tempo liberarono il regno dalle tenebre. Quest’anno, però, il perfido Vaati ha guastato la festa, trasformando Zelda in una statua di pietra. Per salvarla, Link, con l’aiuto del bizzarro cappuccio parlante Egeyo, diventerà cosi picollo da poter esplorare in lungo e in largo tutto il mondo dei Minish.

    Link’s biggest adventure … is right under his feet.

    Features

  • Use the magic of the cap to shrink and explore the world of the Minish lying hidden just beneath your feet.
  • With the help of all-new items like the Gust Jar and the Mole Mitts, shoot blasts of air or claw through dirt to reach new regions.
  • Unravel the secrets of the Kinstones to solve puzzles, unlock hidden areas, and restore happiness to the people of Hyrule.

    The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap delivers classic Zelda action with a fun twist. Link’s new ability to shrink down to the size of the Minish creates many innovative challenges and gameplay twists. The Minish exist everywhere throughout Hyrule -- and Link must frequently shrink down to their size to reveal clues and accomplish tasks.

    When Link is asked to seek the advice of a Minish character living in the library of Hyrule Town, he soon learns that he cannot reach his goal because certain books have been checked out by forgetful citizens. Without the books in place, Link can’t climb up to make his appointment. Link returns to normal size, then sets out to find the overdue books. Link can make his appointment when the books are returned, but even tracking down these missing tomes requires more interaction on the Minish scale.

    In addition to the new size-shifting gameplay elements, brand new items such as the Gust Jar and the Mole Mitts add unexpected twists to Link’s latest adventure. The Mole Mitts allow Link to tunnel around underground, and the Gust Jar creates a powerful vacuum that can be used to inhale anything from dust to unfriendly foes.

    As Link progresses in his quest, he frequently discovers mysterious items called Kinstones. These Kinstones can be fused with other Kinstones held by various characters throughout the game. Successfully fusing Kinstones can trigger a variety of events, such as opening secret passages or summoning hidden treasure chests. Kinstones are everywhere and so are the characters hoping to fuse them.

    Bottom Line

    We’ve just begun to scratch the surface of the surprises waiting for you in The Minish Cap. This game delivers everything a Zelda fan could hope for -- a great story, puzzling gameplay and secrets galore. The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap is one of Link’s most challenging adventures yet!
