New NES Games Now Available

11 October 2018

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, it's easy mode for people who might find The Legend of Zelda's old-school difficulty and lack of guidance a bit intimidating. Players will get to start their adventure with "tons of rupees and items", including all equipment such as the White Sword and the Power Bracelet. Even if you lose the first time, you'll be able to use your fortune to get more items and try again easily.

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. Players may also choose to purchase more items. Nintendo didn't specify which future titles would be receiving this treatment, but "Nintendo Hard" games like Metroid and Ninja Gaiden, both coming to the service before the end of the year, seem like obvious contenders. Make sure you keep an eye on the wind and distance to the hole before selecting your club, or else you'll be racking up some high scores ... which is exactly what you don't want to do in this game.

Of course, the most interesting thing about this game is the idea that Nintendo might release more altered versions of classic NES titles via the Switch Online service.
