In 2004, Nintendo released the Classic NES Series (Famicom Mini in Japan and NES Classics in Europe) to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Famicom's launch in Japan. Ports of The Legend of Zelda and Zelda II: The Adventure of Link for the Gameboy Advance were released as part of this series. "The Legend of Zelda" released on June 7th 2004 in Series One of the Classic NES Series, "Zelda II: The Adventure of Link" released on October 25th 2004 in the Second series. Both ports featured updated, more accurate translations. Also of note, the boss of the Hidden Palace from "Adventure of Link" had its name changed from "Barba" to "Volvagia," which is what it was called in the Japanese release. In order to avoid causing seizures, the death animation of "Adventure of Link" no longer flashes, instead opting for a solid red overlay.
