In just about every Nintendo game console out there, there is always a Legend of Zelda game. That is because the Legend of Zelda series is one of the most popular game franchises of Nintendo.
There are already a lot of installments for the franchise and there is an upcoming Zelda game where people will get a first-hand experience in the coming E3 event next week.
But, even though there is a new Legend of Zelda game, the classic ones will always have a mark for the fans.
Today, I am going to talk about the Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap Game for the Nintendo Gameboy Advance.
The game begins after some introduction about a character named “Vaati” and the legend of the four swords. It was said that a boy with green garments, a sword, and a shield was appointed to drive the darkness back in the day.
Then, the story shifts to Link being appointed by the King of Hyrule to seek the help of the Minish. The Minish clan, also known as the Picoris, are a small race of people who have amazing powers.
The king appointed Link as children are the only ones who are able to see the Minish race.
During the course of his journey to the Picoris, he comes across Ezlo who is a hat with a bird-like head. Apparently, Ezlo was a sage from the Minish clan.
He told Link that he was turned into a cap after being betrayed by his apprentice, Vaati. Vaati grew hatred for humans because for their lust for power.
One day, Ezlo created a cap as a tribute for the humans. This wearer of this magical cap will have the chance to make a wish and it will be granted. Vaati stole the cap and he wished that he be turned into a powerful sorcerer.
After being turned into a powerful mage, Vaati transformed his master, Ezlo, into a cap with a bird-like head.
The game is now focused on stopping Vaati before he destroys all humans. After defeating Vaati, Ezlo transforms back to his original form and he closed the portal from the Minish tribe to the human world for good.
Link comes back as the main protagonist of the game. The game still follows the same gameplay elements to that of its predecessors.
Link’s main task is to go to different dungeons, defeat its boss, and acquire certain item enhancements that have a great role in the game.
The main protagonist will get a hold of some item enhancements that he can use in the game. For example, Link can use the “Mole Mitts” to allow him to dig under the ground so that he can explore new areas.
There is also the “Gust Jar” that can suck up enemies and turn them into projectiles. The projectiles are quite damaging by the way.
There is also an item called a Kinstone. Link has a Kinstone fragment and in certain dungeons, there will be people who have Kinstones as well. When you interact with them, there are certain treasured that are unlocked and it is up to you to find them.
The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap Game for the Nintendo Gameboy Advance is a polished Zelda game in that it has smoother graphics and an amazingly fun gameplay.
