Triforce Heroes is very similar to the The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures, where multiple players work together to solve puzzles and overcome dungeons. This time, only three characters can play together, but for the first time in a Zelda game, Triforce Heroes includes online multiplayer.

Stacking players into totems is meant to be a big part of puzzle solving, but there are also costumes that you can find or buy that give the wearer unique traits and abilities, such as a samurai outfit that gives you a spin attack, or a bomb outfit that turns regular bombs into much larger bombs.
