Original Thread: Honey, I Shrunk the Hero! - Let's Play the Legend of Zelda: the Minish Cap



Greetings, everyone, and welcome to...

Let's Play

I've been gone for a while, but I'm back and ready to go; I'll be starting up again with a game that was requested of me quite a few times (and, frankly, I've been wanting to do anyway). Minish Cap is usually considered the last true 2-D, Top-Down perspective Zelda game; it places Link once again in the land of Hyrule, only this time there is a whole new way to explore the world (but we'll get into that later). Here's some offical artwork from Nintendo to get you into the mood:

Genre: Adventure/Dungeon Crawler
Platform: Gameboy Advance
Released: 2004 (J&EU), 2005 (NA&AUS)
Developer: Capcom
Story: Long ago, an ancient evil was sealed away with the power of the Master Sword Picori Blade; Ganon Vaati breaks the seal and releases monsters on the world once again. It is up to Link to reforge the Picori Blade and defeat Vaati; the only way he can do so is to unlock the secrets of the mysterious Picori (aka Minish).

This time, I will be doing more of a casual run; I will be playing through as normal without going out of my way to get everything. I'll probably go back before I finish, though, and pick up what I'm missing in some sort of collection bonus video (but don't get too excited, this may or may not happen). I might also do some contests or things like I did in the Oracles thread, so look out for that.

Our hero this time is Rick, which should ring a bell for you 90's culture-minded folks, but that's enough foolishness, let's get started!
