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

Kotaku has clarified that "Living the life of luxury" is not a Legend of Zelda variant game, but is rather a "hacked save file" for the regular Legend of Zelda game that was in the NES library at launch.

"And it would just be cool to get it on a handheld as well, because I think that should work for Amnesia and other games as well".

Nintendo surprised Switch Online subscribers on Wednesday with a special version of the 1986 classic "The Legend of Zelda", according to Eurogamer. But if Ganon's still giving you a hard time, the power of money will overcome!


Link's first 8-bit adventure can be pretty brutally challenging at times, especially for younger players who didn't grow up with an NES.

One of the major benefits of signing up for Nintendo's pay-to-play online service for Switch is access to the new "Nintendo Entertainment System" app for the machine - a new little download that has been dubbed "NESflix" by fans. 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.

The game is subheaded "Living the life of luxury!". It's never a bad thing to have more ways to play. 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. 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. However, upon finishing the game (which should not take long with the given head start) players unlock "Second Quest". The original 20 include classics like Donkey Kong, Double Dragon, Dr. Mario, Super Mario Bros, and Tecmo Bowl.
