Nintendo has announced the official release date for their upcoming 3DS title The Legend of Zelda Triforce Heroes. The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes launches for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems on Oct. 23. One of Nintendo’s biggest critical hits at this summer’s E3 video game trade show, The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes lets up to three players team up locally, via Download Play with one game card or online using a wireless Internet connection to cooperatively explore inventive dungeons and battle bosses.

I had the chance to play the game at my local Best Buy when they were showing it during E3 and walked away very impressed with the game.

Looks like we won’t have to wait long now gamers. Are you going to pick it up?
