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.
