Zelda: A Link to the Past Out for Wii U


One of the most popular Zelda games of all time, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, has finally made its way to the Nintendo eShop on Wii U. For $7.99, Wii U owners can now enjoy the 1991 classic on the big screen…or on the Wii U game pad if that’s how you roll.

From the eShop description:

"Travel through the Light and Dark Worlds in this classic Zelda adventure.Return to an age of magic and heroes! When an evil magician named Agahnim begins kidnapping young maidens in Hyrule in a quest to break the imprisoning seal on Ganon, a young boy named Link is called upon to stop him. Link must venture into twisting mazes, dungeons, palaces and shadowy forests as he searches for the maidens and Princess Zelda. Traversing both Light and Dark Worlds, he must navigate eight dark dungeons, fighting evil enemies and huge bosses. Help our hero prevent Ganon and Agahnim from shattering Hyrule forever. Whether you are a young knight, a heroine-in-training or a seasoned warrior, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past will delight!"

A Link to the Past is the third Zelda title to be made available on the Wii U Virtual Console after The Legend of Zelda and Zelda II: The Adventure of Link were both released in the past year. The title should be available to download after the latest store update.
