We answer what NintendWON’T!

October 14, 2015

Today, Nintendo gave their Twitter followers the chance to ask questions to the developers of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes. Only after their Twitter followers vote for the 5 questions to ask.

So instead of waiting, and wondering, PS2J is going to answer them all for you. Using simple logic, and cynicism. Mostly the latter.


  1. What was your inspiration for The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes?
    • Four Swords. Next Question.
  2. If you could pick any two people to play The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes with, who would they be?
    • The other two Links. Anyone else just seems like a losing proposition.
  3. Which costume for Link in The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes is your favourite?
    • The one with the goofy hat and tunic. That always cracks us up.
  4. Why can The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes be played with only three players and not four?
    • Because Quad Force Heroes sounds stupid.
  5. What happened to Purple Link from The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures?
    • He opened up a moderately successful bagel shop in Chicago. He’s doing well enough, they keep in touch.
  6. Where does The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes fall in the series timeline?
    • After Ganon. But before the other Ganon. No not that Ganon, the other timeline.
  7. Where did the concept for The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes come from?
    • See answer 1.
  8. Why focus on multiplayer for a game in The Legend of Zelda series?
    • See answer 7.
  9. Why are players only able to communicate with visual icons? What about voice chat for players who want that?
    • When has there ever been a Nintendo game with voice chat? Splatoon would have been a disaster.
  10. Games in The Legend of Zelda aren’t really known for allowing players to select the levels in the order they want. Why did you choose this path?
    • Have you seen A Link Between Worlds? They eat that stuff up!
  11. What was the inspiration behind the use of costumes in The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes?
    • The fan service game model, as previously seen in games such as Final Fantasy X-2.
  12. Did some of the concepts in The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes carry over from The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds?
    • See answer 10.
  13. Why can’t you play as Zelda in The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes?
    • The Legend of Zelda games have never been about Zelda. And never will be.
  14. Most games in The Legend of Zelda series have a connection to Hyrule. Does the land of Hytopia connect to Hyrule in any way?
    • Yes.
  15. Were there any costume ideas left on the cutting room floor when desigining The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes?
    • Many costumes were left out and only remain in a developer build of the game, simply known as Tri Force Heroes: Extreme Beach Volleyball.
