Why Tri Force Heroes won’t have voice chat ⊟ 

Nintendo’s upcoming co-op spin-off for The Legend of Zelda won’t feature voice chat – not a surprise considering Nintendo-published games rarely do (see Splatoon), but it’s nice to see that the team actually considered including it and had a reason for not implementing the feature.

Tri Force Heroes‘ director told The Verge that voice chat can create a negative play experience, in which experienced players boss others around as they try to work together to solve a puzzle. Instead, the game offers eight different panels on the touchscreen allowing you to convey feelings or suggestions.

“I believe it might be a little bit stressful for players to try to figure out how to communicate what they want to do, but I think that because of that feeling, when you’re able to do it successfully there’s a level of satisfaction that you don’t find in other games,” explained director Hiromasa Shikata.

Other things we’ve learned –via Game Informer – since the game’s unveiling: you can either play solo or co-op with three players (no two-player co-op), there’s a versus"Colosseum” battle mode for 2-3 players, and you can play with two friends locally using a single copy of the game thanks to download play.
