When a video game gets very successful, it’s only natural for developers to want to create a sequel. It’s also natural for developers to try out new ideas when they make their sequels, including the notion of drastically changing the gameplay and the style of the game in question. The Legend of Zelda is an example of this when they made Zelda II for the NES. Although it had a nice overworld map, puzzle-filled dungeons and various caves to explore throughout the land of Hyrule, Zelda II controlled very differently from its predecessor. In fact, I imagine present-day Zelda fans who didn’t grow up with this title would not be overly fond of this game because of how different and how difficult it is compared to the other games of the franchise. However, it’s still a part of the Zelda lore and is definitely worth a look at.

Before moving on to other Zelda titles, I wanted to get completely caught up with the series (at least up to Majora’s Mask anyway) and fill in any gaps I left hanging beforehand. However, Zelda II wasn’t a game I was overly familiar with. In fact, before this playthrough, I had only completed the game once beforehand and that was a few weeks before the end of 2017. So safe to say, I was going into this title with only a little practice and not a great deal of experience. However, from when I played the game, there were definitely some things I appreciated and liked about the experience, so at the very least, you could say I wasn’t repulsed by the game to the point where I just didn’t want to cover it at all. So I figured it was as good of a time as any to finally mark this off of my Let’s Play list, and here we are!

All great legends start somewhere. This legendary series started on the NES back in 1986 and 1987. Link sets forth to collect the 8 triforce shards and stop the evil Ganon from destroying Hyrule.

The NES Marathon has started and the first game I chose was The Legend of Zelda. It’s a game I’m….not really that familiar with, much like all of the games on this NES console. However, it is a very important game to the series because this jump started a beloved series. I knew I had to cover this at some point, so let this be the first game of the marathon!

I will also be doing a playthrough of Second Quest on my stream channel that will get uploaded to this playlist at some point.

With the King of Hyrule in a vegetative state and several female descendants of the seven wisemen gone missing, all eyes turn to the evil wizard Agahnim. Princess Zelda feels that she is next in line for the wizard’s nasty plot and reaches out for a hero to save her. That hero just happens to be Link, and before he knows it, he starts out on his quest to save Hyrule!

I had not done a lot of Zelda on my channel, but I assure you that I am a huge Zelda fan, just as much as the other Nintendo series. I guess I just prefer Mario and Kirby to a much larger extent, but that is just my own, honest opinion. We all started somewhere though with the Zelda series, and this game was the game I started with! I hope you guys enjoy my romp through this classic SNES title.
