Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Anniversary Edition now available for free on 3DS/DSi eShop

Nintendo’s celebration of the 25th Anniversary of Zelda has been going at a fast pace ever since E3 this year. There were live concerts, the re release of Ocarina of Time and Link’s Awakening for 3DS, with Skyward Sword coming capping the whole thing this November. And starting today you can join in on the festivities in the cheapest way possible with a free download. Right now you can download Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Anniversary Edition from the DSi and 3DS eShop.

Originally part of the Game Boy Advance re-release of SNES classic Link to the Past, Four Swords focuses on cooperation between four separate Links over wireless communication. You and three friends can get the game for free off the eShop and team up in the Nintendo/Capcom coproduction to save Princess Zelda from that jerk Vaati. And to make it a fuller experience, Four Swords now has a new single player mode where you control two Links at the same time, switching between the two as the dungeon demands.

Did we mention the whole thing is free? But you need to move quickly because it’s only going to be available until February 20 next year. For all the details head to the official site.
