The Minish Cap Game Club

leave a comment »

Fred and Jam close out the ongoing series GH101 (but leave room for one-offs) with a requested favorite from some of our listeners: The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap.  Released on Gameboy Advance in the mid 2000s, it’s an interesting blend of mechanics from both the Zelda series and a sprinkle of Mario as well.  It was also developed by Flagship and Capcom in conjunction with Nintendo.
