Zelda Four Swords Anniversary Edition Back On 3DS eShop For FREE Until February 2nd!

Back in 2011, Nintendo celebrated the 25th anniversary of The Legend of Zelda with a variety of games and special offers that included music CD's, a special Wii Remote and a free game for 3DS & DSi owners. The free game was The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Anniversary Edition, an enhanced port of the GameBoy Advance original released back in 2002. It was a unique game that introduced multiplayer to the Zelda series for the first time and would pave the way for other Four Swords games such as The Minish Cap.

The enhanced Four Swords Anniversary Edition adds in an option for single player gameplay as well as a few new levels based on classic Zelda titles like Link's Awakening and A Link to the Past. When it was originally released, 3DS owners could download the game for free until February 2012 which meant that Zelda fans who purchased their 3DS after that date were out of luck. Fortunately, to celebrate the release of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past on the Wii U virtual console (which launched today), Nintendo has made the game available once again on the 3DS eShop until February 2nd. Put simply, if you own a 3DS or 2DS, go to the eShop and download your free game as soon as possible. Enjoy!
