All I know is this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Legend_of_Zelda:_Four_Swords_Adventures#Navi_Trackers --- You don't have time to ponder such questions, as Bruce Willis has just grabbed a jet plane.
It was released on the Japanese version of the Four Swords Adventures.
It was never localized, because Nintendo thought it would have been a waste of money to translate the voice acting into English, not to mention the dozen-or-so languages needed for Europe, especially considering the game retailed for less than the usual $50 price and wasn't expected to sell very well (indeed, it remains the only console Zelda title to sell less than 1 million units).
The game is controlled with Gameboy Advance, meaning that, just like with the other Four Swords Adventures games, to play with 4 people, you need 4 GBAs, a Gamecube, the game, and 4 link cables (he he he...Link...). There is a single player option (where Tingle is the opponent).
The game is essentially a maze game - you run around a maze, trying to find members of Tetra's crew before the other players. The game is done in ALttP-style graphics on the GBA, while the TV screen (which you can see in this video) is done in WW-style.
It actually plays very much like you'd expect some Wii U games to, so there is hope for localization if and when Nintendo starts putting Gamecube titles on the Virtual Console (or if they do some sort of "Zelda 30th Anniversary" promotion and release it via the eShop).
Also, it's not called "Tetra's Trackers". Late in development, the game was changed to "Navi Trackers", even though Navi doesn't actually appear in the game.
Remember that the Gamecube is region-locked, though if you have a Japanese Gamecube (or the Action Replay Freeloader), there's a copy on eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Legend-Of-ZELDA-Four-Swords-Game-Cube-Japan-Ver-/221260352892?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3384250d7c --- MOS 6510 @ 1.023 MHz // MOS VIC-II 6567 // 64 kB RAM // 20 kB ROM // 3ch MOS 6581 SID // 1541 FDD // Datasette 3DS: 4897-5935-1924; NN, Steam: CrimsonEnigma
