- On this Day November 4, 2004 – The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap was released for the Nintendo Game Boy Advance in Japan. However, this also released in Europe, North America and Australia on November 12, 2004, January 10, 2004 and April 7, 2005 respectively.
Description: The Minish Cap retains the general gameplay features that were present in previous Zelda installments. The main protagonist, Link, must navigate several dungeons to obtain an item or enhancement at the end of each dungeon that is pivotal towards the quest. Each of the game’s “bosses” are defeated using the item acquired in the boss’s dungeon. The game also includes multiple “side quests”—optional tasks that are not part of the main quest but offer rewards for completion that are beneficial to the player. Recurring characters in the Zelda series make appearances and some form part of side quests; for example, Tingle and his brothers must all be contacted by the player to earn a reward. Within the Zelda chronology, Minish Cap takes place in the single timeline that exists prior to the “timeline split” that occurs in Ocarina of Time. Minish Cap takes place between Skyward Sword and Four Swords, making it the second story in the chronology. As a prequel to Four Swords, the plot of The Minish Cap revolves around the backstory of Vaati and the birth of the Four Sword, which were important elements of Four Swords and its sequel Four Swords Adventures. The Minish, who are also referred to as the Picori by Hyruleans, are a race of tiny creatures that bestowed a young boy with a green garment, a sword, and a shining golden light to drive back the darkness many years before the game is set. There are three types of Minish: Town, Forest, and Mountain.

Description: At first the player can choose between two storylines, for Yugi Muto and Seto Kaiba, but later the player can get one for Joey Wheeler as well. The Yugi storyline involves Yugi, Joey, Tristan, Téa and Bakura being invited to the testing of the virtual reality game “Kingdom,” created by the company SIC. When they enter the game they soon find themselves trapped within it, and they must summon the help of the game’s characters and monsters in order to defeat the game’s villain, Emperor Haysheen and ultimately stop the plans of the game’s designer, Scott Irvine, to control the three Egyptian God cards. Along the way, the players faces Joey, Tea and Yami Bakura. In the Falsebound Kingdom, the player controls an army of Marshals opposed to an army of enemy Marshals. Each warrior commands up to three Duel Monsters. Duel Monsters individually have Attack power and Defense power, and also have HP and AP, the latter representing how many turns they are able to take in battle. Monsters can take items into battle with them with various effects such as increasing their stats or recovery their health. Marshals have an affinity towards certain types of monsters, represented by a colored orb; the closer a monster’s orb color is to a Marshal’s, the higher that monsters stats will be. Continued service under a Marshal will gradually change a monster’s affinity. Monsters can also have unique abilities or attacks with special mechanics, such as hitting multiple targets or doing extra damage to certain enemy types.
