3DS and DSi gamers will be offered Game Boy Advance adventure Zelda: Four Swords for free in September, Nintendo has announced.

The multiplayer-focused game is being re-released without charge as part of this year's ongoing 25th Zelda Anniversary celebrations.

Nintendo are re-packaging it as DSiWare, meaning it'll be available to DSi gamers as well as to 3DS owners through the handheld's eShop.

Four Swords was initially released as a multiplayer add-on to the GBA re-make of A Link to the Past. This concept was later beefed out into a full game - The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventure - for GameCube.

Nintendo has also confirmed 3DS Virtual Console versions of classic Game Boy titles Super Mario Land 2: Six Golden Coins and Metroid II - Return of Samus. Both will launch before the end of the year.
