Nintendo Reveals ‘Legend of Zelda’ Escape Experience

Events Gaming Videogames


Yesterday saw yet another surprising (but ultimately cool) announcement from Nintendo of America, one on-par with other recent reveals like the upcoming hybrid console/handheld Switch system and the wholly unexpected but instantly adored NES Classic Edition. Starting next January, Nintendo and escape room innovator SCRAP will join forces to “create a unique multi-city Puzzle Tour inspired by The Legend of Zelda series.”

Dubbed the Defenders of the Triforce Puzzle Tour, this event is currently confirmed to visit 8 cities across the country, and tickets for the earliest dates are already available. While details are still scarce, we do know that Defenders of the Triforce will challenge multiple 6-person teams to solve Zelda-themed puzzles within a vast shared event space. Afterwards, they can then enter a separate promotional lounge to enjoy epic photo ops and purchase exclusive merch.

See below for the current city list, and keep an eye on the event site for more information as it becomes available.
