Our Nintendo carrier pigeon brings us some hot news straight from the neighboring Kingdom of Hyrule. This week's Wii-kly VC title is none other than The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past!! While some have expressed disappointment that only "one stinking game" was released this week, it's A Link to the Past, dammit! If you're not familiar, I first slap you, and then provide you with this description:
Fantabulous! While I won't be picking this one up (I still have the original), I highly recommend this title to any Zelda fan or gamer out there. Everyone who had an SNES should have played this game. ...or so I would like to think. For the full press release, make the jump!
