A princess in distress...

A kingdom in peril...a fashion emergency?! Team up with two other heroes to save the world of Hytopia from a witch's evil fashion curse.

King character art

For the first time, you can stack three Links into a totem to solve puzzles and defeat enemies. And don’t forget to pick the perfect outfit—each one gives you a different boost or ability.


Dress For Success

You can't defeat evil with good looks alone…but they sure help. Don the right clothes when you head into the Drablands to give yourself a boost or extra defense.

The Right Stuff

You'll need to collect the right materials (and a few Rupees) before Madame Couture can whip up your outfit. Luckily, you can see which materials you'll need in Madame's clothing catalog.

Didn't get a certain material the first time through a dungeon? You can always replay it or talk to the salesman in town.

You've Never Seen Link Like This

Try a few outfits on for size!
Expand your catalog—and your closet—as you play the game.

Explore Far and Wide

Your adventure will take you from fiery volcanoes to icy caverns and beyond, with eight expansive areas to explore—each with four big dungeons.

An Item For Every Purpose

Within each dungeon, you'll pick up the items that you'll need to solve its mysteries.

Sometimes all three Links will have the same one, but other times you'll have to use different items strategically. Wield these magical tools well!

  • Water Rod

    Summon pillars of water.

  • Fire Glove

    Throw fireballs and melt ice.

  • Gust Jar

    Blow away enemies with puffs of air.

Drablands Challenges

You can replay dungeons at any time. But once you've completed all four dungeons in an area, you can add a twist to your replays. Choose a Drablands Challenge when you're entering the level with friends or solo and see what you can do!

Post to Miiverse

Show off what you're doing (or wearing) by taking a screenshot and posting it from the game.

Three Links are better than one

It's dangerous to venture into the Drablands, a world packed with enemies and unexpected obstacles. Luckily, you've got the combined power of three heroic Links!

Cooperation is key. All three Links share the same heart gauge, so it pays to help each other. How you work together to clear each dungeon and reap the rewards is part of the puzzle!

Stack 'em up

Need a boost? Stack up the Links in a 2- or 3-hero totem to get to higher ground or reach a boss's weak spot. Use the totem and your wits to get through multi-level puzzles. When in doubt, try a totem!

Stay in sync! Tap the icons on the touchscreen to send messages to the other Links.
