Although the Minish people are vertically challenged, their place in this world is relevant to Link. He'll need their help in his quest for Kinstones in The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap.

Link looks as good as ever. He slashes the bad guys and solves dungeon puzzles as he does in his previous games. This time, he shrinks it down a notch to hang out with the Minish people. Their village is literally tiny, but the secrets it holds are big ones.

In The Minish Cap, link searches for Kinstones. Did you ever have a "Best Friends" pendant? A pendant that was split in two and you would give one half to your best friend? That's what Kinstones resemble. You will find Kinstones in your journey. Then you need to find a villager who holds the corresponding Kinstone. When you make a match with someone, a secret unlocks.

One of the cool items Link found in the game demo we played was a Magic Jar. This jar worked like a magic suction cup, sucking in cobwebs blocking doors. It also helped Link latch onto items on the other side of water. It stopped short of doing the dishes though.

Developed by Capcom, The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap for Gameboy Advance™ is in stock today shipping at US$ 48.90 only.
