Nintendo isn’t just working on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild game. It’s also working on a new kind of Zelda experience that we have not seen before.
The company has revealed that it’s creating a new escape room puzzle game based on The Legend of Zelda. This real-world game is being created in partnership with escape room design studio Scrap, it’s called Defenders of the Triforce.
This is something different that Zelda fans will appreciate. Nintendo is going to take Defenders of the Triforce on a tour across the United States so that fans across the country can experience it next year. This will be a bit different from a conventional escape room game though. Defenders of the Triforce is going to feature many Zelda elements and participants will have to work in teams of six to solve a mystery in a huge area within a defined time limit. They can interact with classic items and characters from The Legend of Zelda series, like the Goron, Zora, and Kokiri tribes.
Items discovered can be used to solve puzzles and move forward into other areas. Nintendo is going to kick off the tour in San Francisco starting January 31st-February 5th. It will then be available in Los Angeles from February 10th-12th and in San Diego from February 24th to 25th. Then it will hit Seattle, Phoenix, Houston, Chicago, and New York later. Could this be the first of many such tours?
