One outfit might grant the wearer the ability to shoot arrows, for example, while another could provide more life-saving hearts.

 

A new Totem mechanic allows three Link characters to stack on top of each other to reach higher ground and solve puzzles.

The game can also be played solo, allowing one player to rent two paper dolls to take along to complete the legendary team of three.
