NXpress Nintendo Podcast #46: ‘The Adventure of Link’ the Dark Soul of the ‘Zelda’ series





Zelda II: The Adventure of Link was an incredibly assured attempt to rewrite the rules of the entire series back in 1987. Unfortunately, most people just don’t like change and so because it was different, and harder than the original, many fans of the series hate the entry. This week we get into a heated argument about the merits of Zelda II, the black sheep of the Zelda family. But before we review The Adventure of Link we share our thoughts on Pokemon Sun, Pokemon Moon and Shadow Puppeteer, from Norwegian independent developer Sarepta Studio. All this and more!
