Nintendo has announced details on a range of key upcoming titles for its Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, with a string of launch dates and newly revealed special editions.

Unveiled at E3 2015, The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes allows three players take on the role of individual Link characters and team up to solve unique Zelda-style puzzles and boss fights. With one life meter to share, working together will be key to overcome the game’s many dungeons.
This new title in The Legend of Zelda series will launch on the 24th of October, 2015 in Australia and New Zealand.
