Special Version of The Legend of Zelda Added to NES Games for Nintendo Switch Online

Nintendo has quietly added a special version of the original The Legend of Zelda to their lineup of NES games for Nintendo Switch Online.

The new version of the classic game is titled The Legend of Zelda: Living the Life of Luxury, and brings with it a bunch of extra rupees for you to spend in your adventures. It’s basically an easy version for the classic game.

Here’s a brief synopsis on the game:

Buy somethin’, will ya!

In this souped-up version of The Legend of Zelda, you’ll start with a ton of rupees and items! You’ll begin with all equipment, incluing your White Sword, the Magical Shield, the Blue Ring, and even the Power Bracelet. But if Ganon’s still giving you a hard time, the power of money will overcome! Just buy yourself some more items and give it another try! Beating the game once grants you access to a more difficult version of the game called Second Quest.

It’s worth pointing out the service already has the original version of The Legend of Zelda available on it, meaning this is simply for beginners who don’t want to play the original game.

The other new additions for their NES games lineup include NES Open Tournament GolfSolomon’s Key, and Super Dodge Ball, all of which are available today.
