25th Anniversary of The Legend of Zelda

Quote from: Nintendo Life
The Legend of Zelda is 25 Years Old Today

Hard to believe

25 years ago this very day, the very first Legend of Zelda game on NES hit Japan, starting one of the most-loved gaming series of all time.

Recently, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata discussed the possibility of a Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary collection, though there have been no announced plans to celebrate Link's special day in the manner similar to last year's Super Mario Bros. 25th Anniversary.

Link, Nintendo Life tips its floppy green hat to you. Here's to another 25 years of Triforces, dungeons, ancient resurrected evils and being so hungry you could eat an Octorok.

Wow, 25 years for Zelda has gone by. If there is a collection of some sort, I might get it.

One of the best franchises on Nintendo. I've loved the Zelda games ever since I played OoT on the N64. I'm interested to see if they'll make a limited edition with all or most of the Zelda games. Hopefully, it doesn't suck like the Mario 25th Anniversary pack; biggest waste of money for what they called a "Limited Edtion" pack.

Zelda is soooooo overrated, it's not even funny.

A Special Edition pack sounds nice. I would get it. I've been a fan since the first game, and will be 'til the end.

A special edition game would be nice but I don't think Nintendo could make any game that would beat the Legend of Zelda Collector's Edition for the Nintendo Game Cube. I am a giant Zelda fan so if they did make one I'd probably get it the first minute it would be available. :P

I'm still sure I'd get it regardless if there is one, because I'm sure I missed on popular titles.

You think they might release that Wind Waker Demo? Highly Unlikely. I played that once.

VIP that was in the GCN era you know... They could release a demo of Skyward Sword to give fans a taste of what's coming soon but I doubt it. It would be cool if they did.

The logo looks sort of bland, though.

I think the 25th anniversary will be a lot more than just Skyward Sword.
