In this souped-up version of The Legend of Zelda, you'll star with tons of rupees and items! As the name suggests, it's essentially a Netflix-style library of classic NES games you can play that changes over time.

"Living the life of luxury!", this "souped-up" version is more novice friendly than the original, which offered very little explanation or hand holding after its opening moments.

The Legend of Zelda - Living the life of luxury! is now available to play.

The full list of inventory item the save gives you includes White Sword, Magical Shield, Blue Ring and Power Bracelet, Blue Candle, a Red Potion, a piece of meat, and three extra heart containers, in addition to a full bag of rupees, bombs, and keys.

The Legend of Zelda is now available for download on the Switch, though you'll need a Switch Online subscription to get access to it. Beating the game once grants you access to a more hard version of the game called Second Quest.

Last week, we reported the news that Nintendo would be expanding its Switch Online library with a trio of great NES games for subscribers of the service to enjoy. However, upon finishing the game (which should not take long with the given head start) players unlock "Second Quest". With these resources you can pretty much go anywhere and do anything from the very start of the game, which is an interesting approach to opening up a potentially grueling older game to newer players.

Plus, it makes such a lovely noise when you open up the new selection of games for the first time (Zelda: Ltlol arrives alongside Solomon's Key, NES Open Tournament Golf, and Super Dodgeball). We can already see progression-focused games, like Super Mario Bros.
