The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap – The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap plays a pivotal part in the Four Swords storyline of The Legend of Zelda series, and is the first and only game in which Link explores the land of the Minish – a tiny, mysterious kingdom on the surface of Hyrule. That makes this unique entry in The Legend of Zelda series a must-play for new and old fans alike. Inventive items like the Mole Mitts and Gust Jar give Link powers he’ll need to use wisely if he wants to save the puzzling world of Hyrule and the miniature land of the Minish. When there’s a princess to save, a bad guy to beat and you’re THIS small, the stakes could not be higher.
