Classic Zelda on Nintendo Switch Online gets easier with special save data
10 October 2018, 11:57 | Casey Mitchell
Switch Online Subscribers Can Now Play a Special Version of Legend of Zelda
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. Basically acting like an in-built Game Genie, you start the game with every item and upgrade, making the adventure much easier from the get-go.
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. 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.
Back when the upcoming list of games was revealed for Switch Online's Nintendo Entertainment System catalogue, Nintendo of Europe alluded too some mysterious "SP" versions of classic games.
Why didn't Nintendo tell us they were planning first-party official ROM hacks exclusively for Switch Online months ago?!
