The game now lets players who are new or returning for the first time in a while, to play the game, with some serious advantages.
The Legend of Zelda drops players into a mostly open world with little restricting their freedom of exploration except for hard enemies and a few required items.
Nintendo has released a "souped-up" version of The Legend Of Zelda on the Switch's Online service.
What just happened? One of the perks of having a Switch Online membership is that you get access to Nintendo's catalog of NES games to play for free.
The full list of inventory item the save gives you includes White Sword, Magical Shield, Blue Ring and Power Bracelet, Blue Candle, a Red Potion, a piece of meat, and three extra heart containers, in addition to a full bag of rupees, bombs, and keys.
Nintendo's new paid service for online play, Nintendo Switch Online, debuted in September, and with it came a bunch of original NES games available only to subscribers on Nintendo's newest console. 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. Players may also choose to purchase more items. It's not clear whether this second quest also grants you the additional starting equipment.
While Nintendo of Europe seems to have removed mention of the other "SP" games, likely due to Zelda's release date shifting from December to October, the other games with the same label were Dr. Mario, Metroid, Super Mario Bros., Double Dragon, Super Mario Bros. 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.
