That was quick! Today, we review our playthrough of Four Swords and chat about our impressions, the key themes, the connections with Zelda canon, and introduce the next game in the timeline. Four Swords begins with Zelda and Link entering the shrine of the Four Sword many years after it has been used to defeat and seal away the evil Wind Mage, Vaati. Zelda has growing concerns that the seal that binds Vaati in the Four Sword has begun to weaken. Suddenly Vaati appears in the form of an enormous eye, free from his imprisonment within the Four Sword. He takes Zelda as his prize and retreats to his Palace. Link is invited by a few fairies to pull the Four Sword from its shrine, splitting his form. The Link clones set out to earn the respect of each of the Three Great Fairies of the realm who will show the way to Vaati’s Palace. Through complex puzzles, dangerous battles, and a high volume of rupee collecting, the Links prove themselves worthy enough to face Vaati. The Great Fairies reveal Vaati’s floating Palace and the final push to rescue Zelda begins. While Vaati’s final battle is demanding, the Links are able to best the sorcerer, once again sealing him inside the Four Sword and freeing Zelda from his clutches. Their task complete, the Links are returned to their singular form and the Four Sword is once again enshrined.
