The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Anniversary Edition is a DSiWare remake and standalone port of The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords, one of the two games included in The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past & Four Swords. Developed by Grezzo, the game was originally released for a limited time on the Nintendo DSi Shop and Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS between September 28, 2011 and February 20, 2012, as part of The Legend of Zelda twenty-fifth anniversary celebration. It was later released a second time exclusively on the Nintendo eShop between January 30 and February 2, 2014, to celebrate the critical acclaim of The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds.

When the evil Wind Mage Vaati escapes from confinement, Link must draw upon the power of the legendary Four Sword and save the kidnapped Princess Zelda! But there's a catch–whoever touches the sword will divide into multiples! Play in 1-player mode and control two heroes, or play via DS Wireless Play with up to four friends! Hurdle through challenges by using teamwork as you scramble to collect the most Rupees! The Great Fairies are always watching your efforts, and will reward your bravery based on how many Rupees you collect.
All-new for this edition–new stages and modes! Upon completing the main quest, relive memorable moments from the past with levels based on previous Zelda games in the "The Realm of Memroies". For the bold and daring, test your adventuring skills in "The Hero's Trial"!
Four Swords Anniversary Edition features a new option to play the game in single-player mode, in which the player switches between controlling two Links. The player can change control and separate the Links with R, and can reunite them with X. The standard multiplayer mode with up to four players is also available, achieved through DS Wireless Play. Medals of Courage, however, are only awarded in multiplayer.
This version of the game features new content in the form of two areas: the Realm of Memories, which features stages based on past The Legend of Zelda games, and the Hero's Trial, which features more difficult versions of the existing stages.
