The Legend of Zelda

Released on February 21, 1986 by Nintendo

Developed by Nintendo

Experience the original smash-hit adventure on the NES! Ganon, the King of Evil, has broken free of the Dark World and has captured Hyrule's beloved Princess Zelda. But, before she was caught, Zelda managed to shatter the Triforce of Wisdom and scatter its eight pieces throughout Hyrule. You begin your adventure by finding a small wooden sword in a dark cave. Then, as you grow in stature, experience, and strength, so do your weapons. Help Link collect the captured pieces of the Triforce, rescue the princess, and thwart Ganon’s evil plans!

When details of the Switch were vague I noted that if Nintendo offered a Netflix like service where you could pay them a fee and play as many of their old titles as you wanted, that would be pretty awesome. As the Switch was closer to launch Nintendo talked about it's new online service for the system and they said that it would eventually be a paid system where one benefit was a free retro title that was timeboxed to only be playable for a month. Most fans didn't love this idea and Nintendo seems to changing course, according to a new Kotaku article.

"Fans were frustrated by what they saw as yet another oh-so-Nintendo move. As Kotaku commenter Nicholas Payne wrote: “... Read All

I recently saw Kotaku run an article where someone ranked the Zelda's from the very best to the very worst. I haven't played all the Zelda games, but i've played a few and some of the authors placements seemed a bit off to me. For instance, I believe that the original Legend of Zelda does hold up well and whereas it may be hard to understand for some modern gamers that's part of it's mystery. The original Legend of Zelda required you to adventure and explore and it didn't hold your hand. Modern gamers might be turned off by this but 10 year old me somehow found a way to beat the game without the Internet and minus waypoints. The original Legend of Zelda doesn't top my... Read All


The NES Classic launched to such a crazy high amount of demand that it's still hard to get. Nintendo has recently said that it's continuing to build units but there are some parts it's having a hard time getting so it might take a bit longer until we are all able to get one. I've also seen some new hacks making it pretty easy to load fan created ROMS on to the system making it much more extensible than we originally thought. That said, we still have to wait and if I had to guess when I'll finally get one it would be this summer. If you are waiting and want to occupy your time, and bookshelf with something fantastic you should look into the book "Playing with Power:... Read All


I know some of you said you weren't getting the new NES classic, but all your fears have been put to rest because here is an official video showing it off! If i've learned one thing it's that people can't resist advertising so let me know if this turned you around to picking one of these up on November 11th.

Commercial's work. Right?

"From your first Goomba stomp to your thousandth victory in FINAL FANTASY, the Nintendo Entertainment System may just be the most nostalgic gaming console ever. And now, a new, miniaturized version is here, pre-loaded with 30 of the all-time greatest games, including The Legend of Zelda, Super Mario Bros. 3, and MEGA MAN 2. Just plug it in…... Read All

Nintendo is launching a NES reboot that will embed 30 classic games into one small new system. It will ship with one controller but supports up to two of them using a few options.

"You can even enjoy playing several of these games with two players by attaching a second NES Classic Controller, which will be sold separately at a suggested retail price of $9.99. A Classic Controller or Classic Controller Pro can also be used (each sold separately)."

The NES Classic also connects to your TV over HDMI which is great considering most of these old system-in-one remakes usually ship with the old analog video ports making them not work on newer TV's and also look bad.

We wanted... Read All

I'm not crazy about the news, but now we know that the NX and Zelda will launch in March 2017. Nintendo still won't say much about the NX, but Zelda will be the focus at E3.

Zelda is an iconic game that lives on long after it originally came to us in 1986. Since this year marks the 30th anniversary of Zelda an amazing fan tribute has hit the web you can play right now. Someone recreated the original Legend of Zelda in 3D and it's playable right now from your web browser. It's a fun concept i'd argue suffers from some game play issues but is still a very fun and novel take on the original game.

UPDATE: It appears Nintendo has told the authors to take down the game.

"Nintendo asked us to remove this site for copyright infringement. I guess Zelda30Tribute was a little too pixel perfect :-) We're sad about that, but we... Read All

You heard it here first folks, Gannon isn't too bright. Apparently there is a reason Link always wins.


Many of us grew up playing the original Legend of Zelda on the NES. That said, the NES wasn't the original launch system for the Legend of Zelda and James and Mike from Cinnemassacre talk about the original Famicom version. It differs from the US version and they discuss them as the play the game.

The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddess is now on tour and they recently stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to rock out a pretty cool piece from the show. The arrangement here is pretty solid as well as the players themselves. A few years back my friend had the idea to take me to Video Games Live, which is a similar thing save one important point, it wasn't good. Nintendo entering the mix seems to have upped the quality considerably and I give them huge props for doing it well.
