It’s a double-dose of Zelda updates in this week’s Famitsu. Along with new details about Hyrule Warriors Legends, the magazine has presented more information about The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes.

In terms of the plot, there was a beautiful, fashionable Princess in a beloved, fashionable Kingdom. However, a witch curses the princess to wear tights that cover her completely and cannot be removed. The king then sought the “Legendary Hero” to defeat the witch in order to undo this spell.

Famitsu shares the following about some of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes’ characters:

King Carrking

– The King who appears in the story
– Seeks to gather those who resemble the hero in order to help the Princess


– The owner and top designer of “Madame Tailor”
– The clothes she makes have various powers

Princess Frill

– A stylish and beloved teenager
– After a witch cursed her with tights that cover her body, has been confined to her room

Sir All-Back

– The hot blooded and leader of the “Anti Witch Suppression Group”
– His hairstyle seems toe explode during intense training

Mysterious Witch

– The witch who cursed Princess Frill
– Seems to know “Madame Tailor’s” Madame…

Let’s talk about Tri Force Heroes’ outfits, which is one of the main gameplay hooks. It appears that there are 36 in all.

In the title, Nintendo has included eight areas, each of which is comprised of four levels. That’s 32 levels in total, and you’ll find one outfit in each. The remaining four apparently come from bosses.

Here’s an overview of some outfits you’ll find in Tri Force Heroes:

Big Bomber Outfit

– Uses bombs, but produces much larger explosions
– Have to be careful for others not to be caught in blast

Goron Outfit

– Like the beings in the series, allows you to resist fire
– Can climb pillars of flame and the like without worry

Kokiri Outfit

– An outfit that harbors the spirit of the forest dwelling Kokiri
– Allows you to fire 3 arrows at once instead of 1

Great Spin Armor

– Harbors the spirit of the warrior who mastered the Great Spin
– Hold down the B button and unleash a spin attack larger than normal

Balloon Tights

– An outfit that is like the (curious) Tingle in other Zelda games
– With balloons on the back, it looks like you can descend into steep areas…

Warrior Outfit

– When worn, doubles sword power
– When swung, unleashes sword beam to hit enemies that are far away

Hyrule Dress

– A dress like Princess Zelda’s
– Increases chances of hearts appearing upon defeating an enemy

Aristocrat Outfit

– Useful for when saving money

Water User’s Robe

Moving on to items, there are nine types. Each hero carries one item for a total of three on the field at once.

These are some of the items you’ll come across:

Arm Shot

– Extends an arm that allows one to grapple to far away places that cannot be jumped over
