Game Reasearch (Legend of Zelda)


Many people know of the game franchise as it has gained a massive fan base and all the games whatever console they were on were amazing in their own way. My Personal favourite would have to be Majoras Mask Due to the time limit (3 days in game time). This adds a new layer of gameplay. However, I will be focusing on the original LOZ released on the Nintendo NES in February 1986.

The series centres on Link, the playable character and chief protagonist. Link is often given the task of rescuing Princess Zelda and the kingdom of Hyrule from Ganon, who is the principal antagonist of the series; however, other settings and antagonists have appeared in several titles. The games’ plots commonly involve a relic known as the Triforce, a set of three omnipotent golden triangles. The protagonist in each game is usually not the same incarnation of Link, but a few exceptions exist (seen above).

Since the original The Legend of Zelda was released in 1986, the series has expanded to include 19 entries on all of Nintendo’s major game consoles, as well as a number of spin-offs. An American animated TV series based on the games aired in 1989 and individual manga adaptations commissioned by Nintendo have been produced in Japan since 1997. The Legend of Zelda is one of Nintendo’s most prominent and successful franchises, selling over 75 million copies as of 2016.

The First LOZ game has decent graphics for when it was released but when compared to the 2017 Counterpart the graphics really have improved. And this is the same for all aspects.
