Nintendo releases easy version of The Legend Of Zelda for Switch Online

Fans all across the country have signed up for Nintendo Switch Online to enjoy what the paid service has to offer, including online play in popular multiplayer games; Save Data Cloud backup; a smartphone app for voice chat and other features for supported games; exclusive special offers; and the ability to experience classic NES™ games with added online play. 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. 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. One of the games was a surprise Legend of Zelda variant. Just buy yourself some more items and give it another try!

The Legend of Zelda is now available for download on the Switch, though you'll need a Switch Online subscription to get access to it. Players may also choose to purchase more items. Besides, after you beat this version of the game for the first time, you will be able to access a second quest that is much more hard.

This launch may have been a surprise but Nintendo has previously experimented with altering original titles in the likes NES Remix, so it'll be interesting to see if this approach is applied to other titles in the company's back catalogue. 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.

Nintendo has made quite a sizable update to the NES library of games available on its Nintendo Switch console via the Nintendo Switch Online service, but one takes the cake: a special save file for The Legend of Zelda.
