Considering it’s February 21 in Japan, that means it’s officially the Legend of Zelda‘s 30th anniversary.
The first ever Legend of Zelda title was released on February 21, 1986 for the Famicom Disk System. Here’s a look at the original disk and boxing:
The title was followed by Zelda II: The Adventure of Link on the Famicom Disk System the following year, and progressed on to the SNES with The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past in 1991.
In more recent years, protagonist Link has not only starred in The Legend of Zelda series, he’s also had cameos in Super Smash Bros., Mario Kart 8 and has had character’s outfits inspired by him such as the Hero of Hyrule outfit in Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2.
And it doesn’t stop there, we’ll soon be seeing the re-release of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess on the Wii U and will be waiting in anticipation for the release of the upcoming Legend of Zelda title also for the Wii U.
It’s undoubtedly one of the most iconic game series’ of all time, and I’m sure you will join us in saying Happy Anniversary!
