Video Game: The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap
aka: The Minish Cap
But there is one thing you must know: being Minish-sized is full of dangers! Mere puddles at your normal size are bottomless swamps to the Minish.
The twelfth game in The Legend of Zelda
series, and the first completely new one-player Zelda
adventure on the Game Boy Advance
. Despite the fact that it's one player only, it is a prequel to the Four Swords games
, as it goes in depth about the origin of the titular weapon as well as who Vaati is
. The game also features a "Kinstone" mechanism, by which Link can collect pieces of medallions and fuse them with NPCs
. These Kinstone fusions unlock secrets, ranging from highly important bonus items to simple chests of more kinstones.
The story begins at a festival celebrating the legendary Picori, who can only be seen by children. At a sword fighting tournament at the festival, the winner is Vaati (later to become the main villain of the Four Swords games), who releases monsters all over the land and turns Zelda to stone, hoping to obtain the "Light Force" held by the royal family. Link meets a talking hat named Ezlo who joins him on a quest to reforge the famous Picori Blade and use it to defeat Vaati. Ezlo uses his power to shrink Link to the size of the Picori (actually called the Minish), which assists him greatly in his quest.
