We just had it confirmed that the upcoming DSiWare, 3DS-compatible version of The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords is a port of the GBA game; the one that was included on the GBA port of A Link to the Past.

There is no word of the game having online components at this point, and I wouldn't count on it, either. This is a free game we're talking about here. Nintendo isn't making a profit, so we can't really expect them to spend a lot of money on enhancing this already fantastic local multiplayer experience.

I am hoping they throw in some scratch to include some sort of 3DS functionality though, like they did with Excitebike on the 3DS eShop. There is something about 2D sprites on the 3D display that I can't get enough of.

Nintendo is a little bit useless when it comes to putting games out on the Virtual Console in a timely manner, that in and of itself is certainly not news. Since the company started dabbling with downloadable retro software ...more

Majora's Mask 3D bosses are considerably different

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D is more than just a simple port. The portable remaster introduces sweeping changes, like adding fishing holes, apparently. Other things too, probably. We can't divulge everythin...more
