Embark on a quest to find the Triforce, slay Ganon and save Princess Zelda in the timeless adventure game from Shigeru Miyamoto that revolutionized the action RPG genre. Originally released for the Famicom Disk System in Japan, the game arrived in the US on cartridge in 1987. The Legend of Zelda’s gameplay incorporates elements of action, adventure, role-playing, and puzzle games. The player controls Link from an overhead perspective as he travels in the overworld, a large outdoor map with varied environments. Link begins the game armed with a small shield, but a sword becomes available to Link after he ventures into a cave which is accessible from the game’s first map screen. Throughout the game, merchants, fairies, townspeople, and others guide Link with cryptic clues. These people are scattered across the overworld and hidden in caves, shrubbery, or behind walls or waterfalls.
Please note that this is the Gray cartridge version of the game.
