The DS Life: Four Swordswomen

With Halloween on the way, it seemed like a good time to feature some cosplay in The DS Life! As you can likely guess, the most popular costumed gamers we've posted about so far were the cosplaying Link duo (see gallery below), who took their inspiration from The Legend of Zelda's Four Swords spin-off.

We've picked out another group who've dressed themselves up as the colorful Link clones, and while they might not seem as "sensual" as the blondes we featured before, we think they better capture Four Swords' bouyant, playful feel.


This shot was taken by David & Anne Tiu at Cosplay Mania 08 in Manila, Philippines. If you're wondering where the fourth green swordswoman is, she's hidden behind the three smiling adventurers -- you can see her in this photo, along with two others cosplaying as a maid and a mall security guard.

Did you know that a Four Swords follow-up was once planned for the Nintendo DS? Unfortunately, Zelda series director Eiji Aonuma eventually canceled the project so he could work on Phantom Hourglass.


The DS Life is a weekly feature in which we scour the known world for narrative images of Nintendo's handheld and handheld gamers. If you have a photo and a story to match it with, send both to thedslife at dsfanboy dot com.
