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.
If you've subscribed to Nintendo's paid online service for Switch, one of the benefits is access to a library of NES games with added online play support.
Challenge another player in Stroke, Match and Tournament modes on three fantasy courses in the US, the United Kingdom and Japan. What other tweaks would you like to see made? Use quick thinking and magical firepower to discover hidden items and evade numerous enemies as you race against the clock. But be careful, as some destinations have surfaces that can affect your footing. Some NES games got added to the app today and, as a surprise bonus, among them was a new version of the The Legend of Zelda.
Several of the secrets have already been uncovered (mainly to get the rupees), but apart from the above, players will still need to play through all the dungeons in order to defeat Ganon and rescue Princess Zelda. Specifically, you'll have immediate access to the White Sword, the Magical Shield, the Blue Ring, and the Power Bracelet.
Labelled as an SP (Special) release on the menu of the NES emulator app for Switch, this new version of The Legend of Zelda aims to offer newer fans an easier Zelda experience, which is curious. Special save data for other NES titles will become available in the future, offering fun new entry points into fan-favorite games. The original "Metroid" comes out in November, along with "Mighty Bomb Jack" and "TwinBee". In December, three more games will join the service, including the original Ninja Gaiden, the puzzle game Wario's Woods and The Adventures of Lolo.
