Tri Force Heroes’ new tell-all trailer brings the puns and tears

Crying princesses, typical Nintendo

I really wish I hadn’t seen this new tell-all trailer for The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes because now I’m both incredibly pumped and disappointed. I’m pumped because I didn’t realize the game has online matchmaking, 32 dungeons, and a competitive coliseum that rewards winners with items to create new magical clothing. YAAAAASSSSSSSSSSSSSS!

I’m disappointed Nintendo decided to make the story about a rich princess who is now a damsel in distress because a curse robbed her of her style, leaving her only with a onesie. Another Nintendo game with a damsel-in-distress trope, which is strange for the Zelda series since it is known for having strong female characters. Honestly, this looks like it could be the worst Zelda story since the CD-i games, which is saying a lot.

Even if the story isn’t all that interesting, I know I’ll be picking up The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes when it releases in the US later this month on the 3DS.
