    To thwart the vile forces of a wind demon known as Vaati, legendary hero Link turns to the mystical power of the Four Sword to split himself into four colored copies of himself.

    Finally -- multiplayer Zelda for Nintendo GameCube!



    Sizzling swashbuckling action -- times four!

    The Legend continues on Nintendo GameCube in an all-new epic adventure for one to four players. Fusing cooperative and competitive action, Four Swords Adventures features a unique gameplay system that incorporates both the television and the Game Boy Advance.

    When you enter a building or dive into a cave, your character switches from the TV to the Game Boy Advance. When you emerge, the frantic action shifts back to the big screen. To thwart Vaati's nefarious forces, you'll have to master new skills and techniques never before seen in the Legend of Zelda series.

    Features

    • Up to four players can link their GBAs to the Nintendo GameCube to join a fun and frantic competition for Force Gems and special items while cooperating to move massive blocks, trigger switches, and slay mighty bosses.
    • Explore eight massive worlds in the Hyrulean Adventure mode, or fight your friends in Shadow Battle mode until only one Link remains!
    • A rich single-player mode allows you to assume control of all four Links and command their every move by seamlessly switching among battle formations.
    • A high-resolution, top-down play perspective features dazzling visual effects like vivid colored lighting, silky-smooth water ripples, swirling smoke and stylized weather effects.


    Long ago, a valiant hero defeated an evil wind demon known as Vaati and imprisoned him with a magical seal. Over the ages, the seal weakened. Now, Vaati has escaped and abducted Princess Zelda and the six Shrine Maidens. To thwart Vaati's vile forces, legendary hero Link turns to the mystical power of the Four Sword to split himself into four colored copies of himself. The four Links embark on a quest to collect Force Gems and save Princess Zelda. Their journey will take them through enemy-infested lands and puzzle-plagued dungeons.

    Four Swords Adventures seamlessly fuses many elements from past Zelda games into an all-new adventure. Zelda veterans will recognize items, characters and enemies from Zelda classics like Link's Awakening, A Link to the Past, The Wind Waker and more. This game really is a dream come true for any Zelda fan!

    Bottom Line

    The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures is a massive Zelda masterpiece that's just as fun for a single player as it is for four adventurers. The Legend continues on June 7, 2004!

Back of Box and Case (US):
    One Destiny, Four Links!

    For years, the mighty Four Sword sealed away an evil force…until one day, a dark shadow tricked young Link into drawing the sword from its resting place. Now, divided by the sword’s curse, the four Links must unite to free Hyrule from darkness!

    Unite the four Links and master their battle formations to fight off fiendish hordes, or command them individually and unravel the secrets of Hyrule’s lands.

    Using four Game Boy Advance systems, explore the land with up to three friends. Work together, but remember, only one of you can be the true Hero of Light! Fight off countless enemies, but don’t let your friends grab all the treasure, or you’ll be left in the dark!
