How Is Nintendo Celebrating Zelda's Birthday?

This year marks the 25th anniversary of The Legend of Zelda. To celebrate, Nintendo isn't giving Zelda or Link presents. It's giving you one.

Between September 28 and February 20, 2012, players can download a DSiWare version of The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Anniversary Edition, free of charge.

The game features wireless multiplayer and a new single-player mode. The game was originally released on the GameCube in 2004.

Between October 3 and February 20, 2012, select retailers will also be offering special Zelda themed Nintendo 3DS Prepaid Card that depicts Link fighting Ganon. These cards, like so many things in life, are not free.

    Love it.

    Yay for finally playing Minish Cap! I've nearly finished it and I only have to wait a week or two for this! :D

    "The game was originally released on the GameCube in 2004."

    Except it wasn't. This was released on the GBA in 2002. Four Swords Adventures is a different game.

    October 3 and February 20, 2012?!

    You mean I have to wait 5 months?

    Okay, that's awesome.

    Hey, wait a minute. Is it Four Swords Adventure or Four Swords? Adventure already had single player.
