how do i unlock the Four Sword Dungeon?
11 Jul 2021

You have to use the save provided in the forum. I recommend doing so after you beat the game/master the set prior to that point.

You need to rename the save file the same as the old one you deleted.

Mastered. Set was pretty simple until the content new to this version, but I'm thankful the Magic Cape is still allowed for doing the original game's boss battles damageless. They're not that hard after some practice (I only really used it a few times and in some it was more to speed things up), but I'm sure some Dark World bosses (especially Mothula) would have been hellish without it

I just died during Ganon and misclicked. Now I have to do the whole game again. Someone please end my suffering.

Thank you for the set! As a game, I think this is inferior to the SNES original. Cut off screen estate, terrible audio and some glitchy behaviour. Especially in the bonus dungeon. Mothula II had some extremely weird behaviour. Also the sword hitbox might be different but that could be my imagination.
