Navi Trackers is a puzzle-based treasure hunting game that was included in Japanese version of Four Swords Adventures. The game formerly planned as a stand alone game titled Tetra's Trackers, but it was canceled somewhere along the line in development. The players uses Game Boy Advance as a game screen and a controller, while the television screen showing navigators narrating the action, and a basic map.

In this game, Tetra or other navigators will serve as a guide to Link as he searches the land for members of Tetra's pirate gang in a specific order to gain stamps from them. Link must collect as many stamps as possible within a given time limit. In the multi-player game, players must competed with each other to gain the higher scores. In a single-player game, player have the choice of playing against Tingle (Tingle Battle), or collecting the stamps alone within a given time limit (Time Attack).

However, Nintendo canceled the project with no official announcement. The modified version of the game however, was included in the Japanese version of Four Swords Adventures. This game is known as Navi Trackers, but it was never released in other regions.[1]

"Tetra, the leader of the pirates, has put forth a challenge!"

Link must race his way through various settings, collecting stamps from Tetra's pirate cohorts. To rise to the challenge, he will have to use all his exploration and navigation skills. Accepting this hefty task, players search for pirates placed strategically around Pirate Island and receive a stamp from each one as proof that they actually found them. Pirates must be found in the correct order, so players rely upon map information and hints provided by Tetra through the fabled Pirate's Charm. Up to four players compete to see how many stamps they can collect before time runs out.
