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!

A dark cloud of evil has been cast over Hyrule. An evil man from the desert has come driven by his own desires to fill this world with darkness. The only way to stop him? A lone kid from the Kokiri Forest who just so happens to not have a fairy to guide him. That’s all about to change in this epic and timeless tale to save Hyrule from the brink of destruction and darkness.

Ocarina of Time has been a long-time coming on the channel, but before diving into the game, there were definitely some titles I wanted to get through first. However, with all of that taken care of now, it’s time to get things moving on a game that almost everyone has very fond memories of.

NOTE: This project also includes a follow-up to Ocarina of Time in the form of Master Quest. I play through the dungeons of this slightly-updated version on the 3DS remastering of this particular game; The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D.

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.
