Fans of Zelda, I know there are millions of you out there- prepare yourself for the latest way to engage in your favorite realm. The online retailer Merchoid announced on Friday that it would be selling a Legend of Zelda version of Clue.
In case you’ve forgotten, the original game of Clue is a detective game where players work to determine who killed a guest a the party you and your fellow players attend. Each player is given a weapon, a location and a character card. The game amounts to a series of accusations thrown between characters throughout the rooms of the mansion on the board until someone is confident enough to make a serious call. It is a classic detective game that pulls you in.
Having a hard time imagining how this game could fit into the context of the Legend of Zelda as you know it? Understandable.
This is what they say on Merchoid’s site about it:
“In The Legend of Zelda Clue Game, the Dark Lord Ganondorf has stolen the Triforce and is threatening Hyrule with his evil plans to rule the world! In order to fulfill the prophecy and defeat Ganondorf, you must find out WHO possesses the power to defeat Ganondorf, WHAT item is required to defeat him, and WHERE he has established his hidden lair. Includes 6 Metal Hero Movers featuring Master Sword, Fairy Bow, Megaton Hammer, Boomerang, Hookshot, and Bombchu. Makes a great gift for fans of The Legend of Zelda video game series! Ages 8 and up. 3 to 6 Players.”
So as you can see, the idea of the who, what and where remains solid but it looks as though all the players are looking to find that information out. It’s not so much a murder mystery as it is as murderer mystery, if that makes sense.
Zelda fanatics, you’re running out of time. This $44.99 game is selling very quickly- as of today there’s just 9 pre-orders left. Don’t miss out!
