    I'm using a North American 3DS (Ocarina of Time version) and still can't find the game.
    Infact I can't find most of the eShop games. All thats shown are update patches to games, and a few Nintendo 1st party games that should totally be available to download, but say "Not available to download."

    But when I try itt on my 3DS with the same firmware I get the eshop as it should be. Plz halp?

    Both on same firmware with SD cards installed. Picture taken 5 seconds ago so ignore the dates in the corners. Same network.

    "Game currently unavailable"

    Above that message it says 011-3021

    Looking up the error code, it tells me that the DS cannot find and connect to a routed, however, it passed it's router connect test in settings, and it still connects to the eShop, which requires a connection.

    Well, I did not know about this!!
    This is damn awesome!!
    So is this the same DSi version that was on last time? with the online multiplayer and all?
    BTW, is there a way to play it fullscreen on the 3DS XL?

    If it makes you feel at all better, you can still use emulators with multiple gba emulation to play the game.
    With a well thought out macro system, you could play Four Swords in a similar way to Four Swords Anniversary.

    How are they jerks?
    They offered the game for free for a limited time, it clearly said it would end on Feb 2nd iirc.

    they are jerks for pulling that free game out of everyones reach again and again. a multiplayer game at that, that would profit from being available forever.

    They wouldn't profit from it, and it's only local mutiplayer, you can't play it online.

    the reason is exactly that, its local multiplayer only. it would profit from being available. i've talked to so many people over the years that either got it as the only ones among their friends or who have a single friend with the game and wanting to play it but cant. one of my brothers got the game on his dsi. we have 3 3ds' now, but can we play this game together? no. and its really dull if you play it alone.

    as a whole, it wouldn't hurt nintendo either if every 3ds has a potentially free multiplayer zelda game.

    If it's available for a limited time, it's incentive to buy a 3DS in the limited window and not "oh well, I can get a 3DS whenever and it'll still be there". If you/friends already had a 3/DSi and didn't grab the game, should've paid more attention.

    Yeah, and considering the promotion went during the weekend, I think it was enough for people to get it.
    If u didn't, well, though luck. U may never get it again.
