Has it really been that long? Yes folks, 25 years ago, the world were introduced iconic characters, Link and Princess Zelda. Time flies when you’re having fun gaming. For me, it just seems like a few years ago I was solving puzzles to save Princess Zelda from dangerous dungeon bosses on Nintendo.
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of The Legend of Zelda, the great people of Nintendo have launched a website to share an interactive history of the series, as well as video featuring an orchestra at the recent E3 Expo performing familiar tunes from the game. (Nice, it reminds me of Video Games Live – good times.)
