Classic Zelda on Nintendo Switch Online gets easier with special save data

NES – Nintendo Switch Online adds The Legend of Zelda special version

NES – Nintendo Switch Online adds The Legend of Zelda special version

Three are all-new - NES Open Tournament Golf, Solomon's Key and Super Dodgeball - but one is an interesting twist on an existing title, The Legend of Zelda.

"Living the life of luxury!", this "souped-up" version is more novice friendly than the original, which offered very little explanation or hand holding after its opening moments. Nintendo has also stealth released The Legend of Zelda - Living the Life of Luxury, a special edition of the classic NES game that lets players start the game with a pile of rupees and handy items. This remixed version certainly offers an easier entry point to the experience, and has obvious appeal to both new players and hoary old explorers who just want to take a stroll down memory lane. Even if you lose the first time, you'll be able to use your fortune to get more items and try again easily.

The game is subheaded "Living the life of luxury!". Specifically, you'll have immediate access to the White Sword, the Magical Shield, the Blue Ring, and the Power Bracelet. It's never a bad thing to have more ways to play. It's not clear whether this second quest also grants you the additional starting equipment. Besides, after you beat this version of the game for the first time, you will be able to access a second quest that is much more hard.

Today's additions bring the NES library up to 24 games.

The idea is to provide gamers with access to the later stages of the game that many may have missed out on when the game first debuted on the NES back in 1987 - it's a surprisingly hard and esoteric game. The original 20 include classics like Donkey Kong, Double Dragon, Dr. Mario, Super Mario Bros, and Tecmo Bowl.
