Welcome to the Legend of Zelda. Where the only sound you'll hear is your own heart pounding as you race through forests, lakes, mountains and dungeonous mazes in an attempt to restore peace to the land of Hyrule. Along the way you'll be challenged by Tektites, Wizzrobes and an endless array of ruthless creatures who'll stop at nothing to prevent you from finding the lost fragments of the Triforce of Wisdom. But don't despair. With a little luck and a lot of courage, you'll conquer your adversaries, unite the Triforce fragments and unravel the mystery of THE LEGEND OF ZELDA.
THE LEGEND OF ZELDA is the most challenging video game we've ever created. To help you keep up with the action, ZELDA comes action-packed with:
- MAPS OF HYRULE - use them to find your way through the Overworld leading you to the lost fragments of the Triforce.
- EXTENDED PLAYING POWER - ZELDA is programmed to remember everything you find on your journey, so you never have to start your search empty-handed.
