The Minish Cap Guide Complete!

Mases HagopianFebruary 15th, 2013 by Mases Hagopian

Back in early 2012, I started to rebuild The Minish Cap Walkthrough that we have here at the website. This was shortly after the game was released as part of the Ambassador Program on the Nintendo 3DS. I thought that it was inevitable that it would eventually become available to the public for the 3DS. Well, over a year has passed and we are still waiting! In last months Nintendo Direct it was announced that Game Boy Advance games would eventually be released on the Nintendo Wii U e-Shop.

Nevertheless, the final chapter of the Minish Cap guide has since been completed, with this one covering Dark Hyrule Castle. The complete guide is now a 100% guide getting every heart piece, upgrade, and every optional item found along the way. It is filled with over 850 screenshots, helping to guide you along the way. While the guide itself is done, it isn’t exactly complete in that we will still be making improvements. We’ll eventually fancy up the side bars with additional side content, information, trivia, artwork, and game maps. Until then, this should do the trick as one of the best online guides for The Minish Cap.

    Good job. Does it include 100% Kinstones?

    • zombie_eat_flesh

      I hope so.

    • http://www.zeldadungeon.net/ Mases Hagopian

      It includes all the Red and Blue Kinstones, along with the few ‘set’ Green Kinstones. There are tons of optional Green Kinstone fusions throughout the quest. These are random though. (The person you fuse with is random and the reward is random). Almost all the Red and Blue Kinstone fusions are ‘Set’. So ya, it doesn’t exactly include all Kinstone fusions.

        Though, the optional Green Kinstone fusions I’m referring to here, they lead to extra Mysterious Shells or Rupees. Not anything of significance.

    I don’t understand why you switched to wiki format. The other way was just fine, and not so cookie-cutter.

    • http://www.zeldadungeon.net/ Mases Hagopian

      The Walkthroughs are still as they were. Just more organized. We aren’t using Wiki for Walkthroughs. For the Minish Cap, once it is populated with sidebar content, it will look sorta like our early chapters from our LA guide, which I think is the best type of format.

        You should unban me from the forums, by the way, Mases. I was like a god to those people.

    I love ZD guides. I can always turn to you guys when I’m stuck, need help w/ a 100% run, or when the method’s you propose are way easier than the vague stuff the book-guides come up with. Go ahead and hate me for loving guides, but considering they take up well over half of this site, I’m completely supportive of them. :D

    • Guy

      There is nothing wrong with liking guides. When im stuck on a puzzle in a zelda game and look it up here, i am so tempted to continue following the guide :P

      • Midnafan

        i know there’s nothing wrong with that. i just recently got over a several-week long comment argument when i mentioned using a guide for OoT (please nobody start that again :'() and it was brutal. i just hate the people that give other people crap for how they play and have fun. if they’re not gonna be nice, they need to mind their own business. wooh. so yeah, ZD guides rock! :P

        • Tito Burgess

          I always try to not use a guide but sometimes there’s that one puzzle…

          • http://ZeldaDungeon.net/ Jordan D.

            Exactly.

          • Midnafan

            i use guides when i want to get everything in the game or want to not spend two hours trying to figure out how to do something. it’s especially useful in SS. i mean, who really wants to spend all that time flying around between all those areas to see if someone might need a sidequest, only to find there weren’t nay at that point and you just wasted almost an hour? maybe other people are better at this than me, but i say screw that: one playthrough for the story, one playthrough using a guide to get everything. :P

          • Tito Burgess

            I like having the satisfaction of finding secrets by myself but sometimes I just cant get past the idea that i might be missing something that I wont be able to get later and I have to look it up.

          • Midnafan

            me too. i’m a little too nitpicky to find secrets on accidents though. That’s probably why i like guides so much. i like taking the systematic approach to things (which is why i really like more standard RPGs) i know that can be a bit of a problem when playing Zelda since is designed for the exploring, but i still manage to have fun with it which is suppose is all that matters right? :)

  • Sir GearHeart

    I never could find one last heart piece, welp time to start a new game and get them all.

    • Sir GearHeart

      I can’t believe I missed number 45. Well after many years, luckily not starting a new game, and a quick peak at the wiki I now have 100% so yayifications.

      Considering you posted no indication of your forum name or anything, how exactly do you expect him to do that?

  • Darunia

    Please do a walk-through for 4 Swords!

  • Anthony

    ZD Staff! Work on the Oracles next!

    Cool, if I get my gameboy working again I will use the guide :D

  • Chris

    When I decided to replay the game on my Ambassador 3DS, I got like 99.9% complete, with just ONE damn kinstone fusion missing… I have NO clue where it is >_> and I looked at the whole list in the walkthrough, can’t even identify which one I missed LOL. I haven’t tried to complete it since (yes I know, missing just ONE kinstone fusion sounds stupid, but I want it D: ) Is there any new kinstone fusions after you beat the game, other than the Goron for the Mirror Shield??
