October 29 eShop Update Includes Legend Of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes Demo

This article is over 8 years old and may contain outdated information

Prior to the launch of The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes, Nintendo sent out Nintendo eShop codes that a person could redeem for a free demo to enjoy on their Nintendo 3DS. These were delivered via email, and each recipient also received additional codes to share with friends. A limited number of online testing sessions were provided, in the hopes people could experience one dungeon and try on Hero’s Tunic, Kokiri Clothes, and Legendary Dress costumes. On October 29, that demo will be uploaded as part of the Nintendo eShop update for everyone to enjoy.
