The original Legend of Zelda on NES went on sale in Japan 25 year ago today. Link and the Zelda series continue to be among the worlds most recognized gaming icons. There has been a Legend of Zelda game on every Nintendo console (and one random other one) since the original NES. Many of those games became generation-defining experiences across each Nintendo console, including Ocarina of Time for the N64, which is often regarded as the single best game ever made. (I’m more of a Link to the Past guy, myself)
So Happy Birthday to Link, Zelda, Gannon and all of their adventures. Let’s hope Skyward Sword is your best game yet!
