Early Tuesday during Gamescom Nintendo announced that Zelda’s latest iteration of the franchise, Tri Force Heroes, will release on the 3DS October 23, 2015.
The game was originally announced at E3 2015, but it wasn’t until now that a release date was unveiled.
This new action-adventure dungeon crawler will have a greater emphasis on multiplayer contrary to most previous Zelda games.
Tri Force Heroes offers the ability for three players to play simultaneously online in order to solve numerous puzzles throughout the game. The most noteworthy aspect of the multiple characters is their distinct abilities that differ depending on which outfit is being worn. Each outfit has a specific boost that can be swapped for another in the game world.
Although the focus is on a three-person multiplayer, a single player option is also available.
Nintendo has also confirmed Tri Frorce Heroes will not have Amiibo support.
The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes is one of many games that Nintendo will be pushing to make up for the downward-sliding sales figures that the company has been experiencing as of late.
