Nintendo has announced that they are bringing “The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap” to the Wii U Virtual Console. One of the highest rated Zelda games, it was initially released on Game Boy Advance and was developed by Capcom’s Flagship Team.
Currently there is no release date confirmed for the virtual console but it should be announced soon.
“The Minish Cap” is the third Zelda game that involves the legend of the Four Sword, expanding on the story of “Four Swords” and “Four Swords Adventures.” In the game a magical talking cap named Ezlo can shrink Link to the size of the Picori, a thumb-sized race that live in Hyrule. The game retains some common themes of previous Zelda installments, such as the presence of Gorons, while introducing Kinstones and other new gameplay features.
The game was named the 20th best Game Boy Advance game in an IGN feature, and was selected as the 2005 Game Boy Advance Game of the Year by GameSpot.
