Legend of Zelda Special Version like all the succeeding Zelda games was an Action RPG game. NES app lets you experience your childhood taking you down the memory lane with numerous popular titles of the original NES. Speedrunners will probably have a good time getting through the game with these special boosts as well.

If you've subscribed to Nintendo's paid online service for Switch, one of the benefits is access to a library of NES games with added online play support. Alongside the new titles, the company today introduced a new "Extra" version for The Legend of Zelda, which essentially makes the game a lot easier to get through. However, this wasn't the only game to release for the NES library today.

The items you begin with include the White Sword, Magical Shield, Blue Ring, and Power Bracelet. Having announced that NES Open Tournament Golf, Solomon's Key, and Super Dodge Ball would be added to Nintendo Switch Online in October, players were only expecting three new games to be available. It's a big shift: the original Zelda is infamous for dropping you in the middle of a risky, magical world with little equipment and even fewer directions. The "luxury" edition starts players off with a ton of rupees and items.

The 11-year-old girl died after the strong winds swept up a metal carport and blew it into her home, hitting her on the head. Residents emerged in the early evening to assess damage when rains stopped, though skies were still overcast and windy.

It's also worth noting that once you beat the game, you'll have access to a more hard version called Second Quest. It shows that Nintendo is ready to start giving us refreshed material for games that have been re-released on Virtual Consoles, over and over again.

Special save data for other NES titles will become available in the future, offering fun new entry points into fan-favorite games.

Games for December will include Wario's Woods, Ninja Gaiden, and Adventures of Lolo.
