I’ve heard of it before, but am not at a point in my life where I can just go out and try to track down all necessary materials to play it. Maybe in a few years.

I'd love to see this top-down view with Wind Waker style graphics utilized again in some sort of online co-op title.

This needs to be localized by the fans. If we managed to port Mother 3 ourselves we should be able to pull something off.

Why the heck would they make it so complicated and need 4 gba systems for it to play? That's completely stupid. Also a different version of the cube? Come on now! Ridiculous

I did vaguely know about this game and had seen the intro cutscene, but I never actually saw any gameplay. Interesting stuff.

Asymmetrical gameplay almost seems like a precursor to Wii U

Don't worry, just funny not offensive. You named yourself "haha" or mom (informally).

This would have been such a perfect add on to Wind Waker HD, even fully utilizing the Wii U's functionality, why the heck didn't they do this??

Tetra is actually able to say whatever name you enter!

The game allows a maximum of two characters, and because Japanese speech only has a few possible vocal sounds compared to English, she can synthesize the player's name using prerecorded samples.

This feature (along with the voice acting in general) was probably the biggest reason why this was never localised.

I love everyone's videos from Nintendo Life but especially yours, Jon. They always brighten my day. 🙂

While I've heard of this mode, I've never seen it in action. I never knew it had voice acting either. So This is definitely a window into something unseen by many, I think.

I wouldn't technically call it a spin-off. It's a game mode in a main series game, just removed for the western version.

Just a side note, the name you entered was simply "Ha Ha" if memory and eyes serve. (Though it is quite hard to read for me)

It was such a huge missed opportunity that Nintendo didn’t port/remaster/remake Four Swords Adventures to the Wii U! They made this asymmetrical gimmick, perfect for a Four Swords game, and the don’t even use it!! They could have made it online with voce chat because the Wii U has a mic that never gets used and they could have made it so that 3DS’ could connect to the Wii U locally, somewhat similar to Smash 4!
