Legend of Zelda: Four Swords - Gameplay Trailer

four Links During my 3rd year in Highschool, a friend of mine lent me his Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past for the GBA and in return I let him borrow my Mega Man Zero cartridge. We went on to trade more games over the summer.

To be honest, the only Zelda game I had played before that was Oracle of Ages which I didn't find very fun. When I played Link to the Past I thought the graphics where butt. why did Link have purple hair? I knew the GBA could do better than that (during that time I didn't know Link to the Past was originally on the SNES). Still I found a great deal of enjoyment from that little game and really opened my eyes to the Zelda franchise. But there was another game on that cartrige. It had a nicer sprited Link, a sword that could split 1 hero into four, and a kick ass intro. There was a problem. I couldn't play the game alone and always wondered how that game played. That game was The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords.

After around 2 years, I was finally able to play Four Swords with other people via an emulator. I didn't knew very few that owned a GBA. They didn't have a link cable nor did we really have the same games so emulator was the only way to go with this. I gotta say that it was a blast.

With Four Swords coming to DSiWare and wireless communication now the norm, this is the perfect time to have a Zelda Four Swords LAN Party.

Aside from the main Four Swords game, there looks be a ton of new content. From new areas and puzzles to a NES looking stage and a original Gameboy area.

Pokemo~ I mean Crystal Monsters!... Wait, what?

Gameloft is a studio that is known for making a lot of games for mobile devices. The inspiration for most of their titles can be a bit.. questionable at times (most of the time) but they do release some quality titles.

Here we have one of their games that was released on July 10, 2010. Look Familiar?

From the Gameloft site:

There are two kinds of people in this world: those who can see monsters - called Neo-Seeds - and those who can’t. Neo-Seeds wield extraordinary power and battle using tamed monsters in grand tournaments. As a young Neo-Seed who just discovered his ability, it is time for you to set off on a fantastic adventure to become the greastest Monster Breeder. Travel across the world on a quest to uncover the secret of the Final Monsters as you capture, breed and train your own team of powerful creatures to best your opponents in dangerous monster battles.

After seeing this, I have lost all faith in Gameloft.
