Newly Discovered Legend of Zelda Prototype is Easier Than the Final Build

Category: Uncategorized

After more than 24 years, an early build of the original Legend of Zelda has been found and is available to the public. Well, if you have the necessary means with which to play it, that is.

One thing becomes instantly apparent when you start making your way through the game’s dungeons: It’s pretty darn easy. Apparently, for the final version of the game, Nintendo decided to crank up the difficulty by making enemies stronger and adding more of them to rooms.

A list of all the known changes in the prototype are available at The Cutting Room Floor. If you want to play the game yourself, the necessary Famicom disk files can be downloaded here.
