In the latest Mas’ Zelda Collection video I take a look at the two different versions of A Link to the Past for the Super Nintendo, as well as all the goodies found inside. Much like the NES Zelda titles, A Link to the Past came with some nice goodies, including a huge foldout map, a very detailed instruction manual with a backstory, and a small ‘Top Secrets’ FAQ.
A Link to the Past originally released in the United States in April of 1992. Four years later it re-released as a Player’s Choice title with slightly different artwork on the box and cartridge. However, the actual game and virtually everything else about it was left unchanged. A Link to the Past was just such a popular game at the time and back during the SNES days, games had much longer longevity. Even four years after its release, there was still high demand, so Nintendo made a second run of the game in what I believe is one of the first Player’s Choice Nintendo titles ever. You can go ahead and make the jump to see the video embed of the latest collection video.
A Link to the Past can still be purchased today in its boxed form on ebay for about $40 or $50. This is still a great deal, considering many Super Nintendo games cost up to $59.99 back when they originally released. So even after 20 years of inflation, you can still pickup A Link to the Past for a cheaper amount now than back then. Alternatively, the game is available for the Nintendo Wii Virtual Console, selling for 800 Wii Points, or $8.
As always with Zelda Collection videos, be sure to Subscribe to our YouTube Channel to get all our latest videos. I usually upload them sometime between Wednesday evening and Sunday morning, but they won’t be posted here at the site until Sunday. Thus, you can always get the latest Zelda Collection videos ahead of schedule by subscribing to the channel. I THINK, I should be able to get a Zelda Collection video up every Sunday from this point forward for the foreseeable future. However, I have said that before and failed to deliver, so we will just take it week by week. So you guys next Sunday!
