Zelda Dungeon Talks: Is The Adventure Of Link Worth Remaking?

Hey everyone and welcome to this week’s edition of Zelda Dungeon Talks! Zelda II: The Adventure Of Link. Definitely not the most popular Zelda game out there. The sequel to the original game The Legend Of Zelda is a very different kind of Zelda game compared to the ones we know and love. You know those little side scrolling sequences in the dungeons of the original game? Yeah well that basically the entirety of Zelda II except for the overworld, which is top town like the original. This game also had RPG elements as you could level up to upgrade your sword, get more health etc. So as you can tell, this game is quite significantly different to the others in the series. It’s the only Zelda game of its kind so is it worth remaking? Would Zelda fans really appreciate an improved side scrolling Zelda? To be completely honest I would buy it straight away!

In this week’s edition of Zelda Dungeon Talks, various staff members will tell us whether they think The Adventure of Link is worthy of a remake. Feel free to voice your own opinion in the comments. Read more…
