Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes in Action

Co-op gameplay footage from E3

One of the new games shown during Nintendo's E3 Digital event was a new Legend of Zelda game, though not the one for which fans were probably hoping. The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes is an upcoming 3DS title which allows three players to team up to do some puzzle solving by dressing up like Zelda and then forming totems of power. At least, that's the impression I got.

Polygon captured some co-op gameplay footage while they were at E3. Each of the three players has a different outfit on that seem to confer different abilities. The red player is some kind of samurai that can shoot arrows, while the blue and green players can throw bombs of varying size. It does look to be a fairly cooperative experience while also being rife with opportunities to grief your fellow Links.

One thing that stood out to me in the video is that it appears there's no revival system and that health is shared amongst all players. So if one Link should fall, all will fall.

The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes arrives some time this fall.
