Trivia / The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes

Go To

  • Fan Nickname: Three Swords and Three Swords Adventures because the game is similar to the Four Swords subseries but only allows for three players.
  • Flip-Flop of God: Whether this game is canon and part of the official timeline (and if so, where) used to be an open question, since the answer varied depending on the Nintendo representative or promotional material. Eiji Aonuma himself said prior to release he hadn't decided for sure yet. It was later confirmed for the offical timeline, taking place soon after The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds and the Green Link being the same Link as that game.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • The devs did test four-man multiplayer, but it didn't work too well with the totem mechanic: a four-man totem was too tall to be effective; and the two Links in the middle don't actually do anything, which kills the fun too much. Plus they found that when four players were put together, they tended to split up in teams of two, which went against the teamwork they were trying to encourage.
    • The devs also wanted to include a costume for Link based off The Emperor's New Clothes, but they couldn't think of any abilities for this outfit, so the idea was scrapped.
    • Princess Styla originally had a mask on her costume, with several designs being suggested. Every single one was rejected for pretty much the same reason...
    • An unused model for Link has been discovered that shows in one point in development Link was a mix of A Link Between Worlds Link and Toon Link.
    • Advertisement:
    • Voice chat was considered for the game at one point, but was later scrapped as Hiromasa Shikata felt that it would be too stressful for players.
    • Other ideas for costumes that were considered but later got scrapped include an smelly costume that would repel enemies with its stench, a costume that would put all the situation reports in the Kansai Regional Accent of Japanese, a costume that would make Link look handsome in photos, and a Great Fairy costume.

How well does it match the trope?
