A New Version of The Legend of Zelda Just Launched on Switch

  • Nintendo Switch Online

Three more titles were scheduled for release today and are now available, but there was also a fourth title added.

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.

Live the life of luxury. Once people beat the game one time, a more hard version called Second Quest unlocks. As the name suggests, it's essentially a Netflix-style library of classic NES games you can play that changes over time.

Last month Prince William opened up about the emotional toll of witnessing suffering during his time as an air ambulance pilot. The Cambridges have two older children - Prince George, five, and Princess Charlotte, three.

Available now, Nintendo has updated the version of The Legend of Zelda with an optional set of special game save data that anyone can access, which starts you off as Link with almost all of his special weapons and items already unlocked along with loads of rupees (the game's currency) with which to buy even more goodies from in-game vendors.

The game is subheaded "Living the life of luxury!". You'll begin with all equipment, incluing your White Sword, the Magical Shield, the Blue Ring, and even the Power Bracelet. Players may also choose to purchase more items. However, upon finishing the game (which should not take long with the given head start) players unlock "Second Quest". 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. Apparently, Nintendo wants to make the game a bit more relaxed for any Zelda noobs who might be playing. The original 20 include classics like Donkey Kong, Double Dragon, Dr. Mario, Super Mario Bros, and Tecmo Bowl. Anything you don't immediately have access to will be easy to buy given how many rupees you start this version of the game with.
