A blacklist option will allow players to block “fake heroes” during online play in Nintendo 3DS title The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes.
In the online world of Tri Force Heroes, enemies such as Buzz Blobs, Moblins, and Deku Scrubs will test and challenge your adventures. Unknown heroes, real random players you meet up with online, might also challenge your adventure — in an unfavorable way.
For this reason, players will have the option to block others whom they find to be annoying or unhelpful by registering them to a blacklist. The list will store the latest 100 players registered, and mutual friends (via Friend List) can not be blocked.
Mr. Tudor, an in-game character from the game’s multiplayer lobby, says “These pretenders, not having the heart of a true hero, will behave heinously in the Drablands. I recommend you register such fake heroes on the blacklist.”
Tri Force Heroes does not allow systems from different regions to connect together online; only systems from the same region (North America, Europe, Japan, etc.) are supported for online multiplayer.
Nintendo News is currently reviewing the upcoming portable Zelda game developed by Nintendo and Grezzo, so be on the lookout for that next week.
The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes debuts in Japan on October 22. It launches one day later in North America and Europe on October 23.
