A while back, we reported on the European Wii U eShop finally making the Super Nintendo classic The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past available for download. Well just recently, this game, the prequel to A Link Between Worlds, at long last became available on the North American eShop!

The download costs only $7.99, and features the full game playable on the Wii U gamepad. This is a must buy for any Wii U owning Zelda fans, particularly those who haven’t yet gotten to play it. Check out the eShop listing here.

On the 12th of December this year, the Super Nintendo Zelda classic A Link to the Past finally got released on the Wii U eShop, but only in Europe. There is currently no word on when or if the game will be released in this format in North America, although it can be assumed that it won’t be far behind.

Given the recent release of its direct sequel A Link Between Worlds on the 3DS, many fans assumed that it would come sooner to the Wii U eShop, but its better late than never.

Those of you who have already purchased A Link to the Past on the Wii virtual console will be able to upgrade for only $1.50, much less than the standard $7.99.

For anyone living in Europe who hasn’t already played this game, this is a great opportunity to experience it for the first time.

Hey, Zelda Eternity readers! If you’ve been around the internet recently, you’ve probably heard of Youtube a capella VGM sensation, Smooth McGroove. What has he pulled out from under his epic beard this time? Nothing short of an arrangement of the Lost Woods theme from A Link to the Past! Take a listen below!

Additionally, it seems that Master McGroove is pulling out all the Zelda stops today, holding a stream of the newest entry to the Zelda series, A Link Between Worlds. If you got the game today and want to play along with the man with the voice of a god (sorry Elias), jump on over to this link and give him a view. Be warned, however, given the unedited nature of this stream, it’s bound to be spoiler-tastic. To the spoiler-phobic, beware!

As always, have a great day, ZE fans! Weegee, out.

New Zelda Episode of Digressing and Side Questing

Posted on September 18, 2013 by Daisuke909

Just recently, on September 14, the Game Theorists Youtube channel posted a video in their series Digressing and Side Questing. In it the host analyzes the design choices of the original NES classic, particularly as they compare to those of A Link to the Past.
Be warned, as the video gets slightly adult.

What do you think of the host’s opinions? Do you think they’re well founded, or just based on nostalgia?

And that’s it from me. Weegee, out!

If there was ever any doubt in your mind that the sax can’t make anything sound 10x sexier, let those blasphemous thoughts wash away with this remarkable video!
