Legend of Zelda: Four Swords For Free For Four Days

I am never writing a title like that again.

American Legend of Zelda fans are in for a treat, because for the next four days, LoZ: Four Swords Anniversary Edition is free to download from the Nintendo eShop for the 3DS. The promotion ends just before the stroke of midnight on February 2nd, allowing players four days to dig up four buddies to forgo any aforementioned plans and place more forethought on Four Swords.

Okay, I promise I’m done with the four-puns now.

And anyway you’d only need to dig up three buddies, since you’d be the fourth player.

In all seriousness, this is a big deal for Zelda fans who were disheartened to discover that Four Swords: Anniversary Edition was removed from the Nintendo eShop in 2012. The game was originally released on 9/28/11 as part of the series’ 25th anniversary celebration, and like now, it was free to download. As of 2/20/12, Four Swords was completely removed from the Nintendo eShop (not even as a paid download, just completely gone) and has not been made available again until today.

There’s no confirmation just yet if the game will disappear from listings once again after this four-day promotion, or if it will become a permanent figure in the eShop at long last. If you have any interest in obtaining the game, now is the time to do so, just in case Nintendo seals it off for the second time.


The Legend of Zelda, Four Swords: Anniversary Edition, and the Nintendo eShop are all © Nintendo. I did take a picture of my 3DS, which is awkward as hell to coordinate, but the image is still Nintendo’s property. (Seriously, it would’ve been so much easier if they’d just let me take a screenshot.)
