Old School Sundays: Zelda II: The Adventure of Link commercial

It’s incredible that this Nintendo classic has hit the 21 year anniversary. Not to be confused with the latter side scrolling adventure game ‘Battle of Olympus’ Zelda II was released in 1988 in North America and 1987 in Japan. Many Zelda fans did not accept The Adventure of Link even being called ‘the black sheep” of the Zelda series. Sales were still high, as expected, possibly due to this Japanese commercial.

I think the little girl said, “Haha, we got the game first! You filthy American’s get it next year.”

Enjoy your OSS!

  1. I <3 80s video game commercials.

  2. Great OSS! Zelda II was an excellent sequel, one that really matured from the original. Much like SMB 2 ventured into new territory by allowing characters to pick up onions and throw it at enemies. Zelda II introduced a brand new feel to the Zelda brand name along with a great storyline that ultimately at the end, introduced link battling a shadow of himself, very clever stuff!

  3. He battled who??? Thanks, now you’ve ruined the ending!
    I guess I’ll skip this one and try to beat “Zelda: A Link to the Past”.

  4. Ruined the ending? Didn’t you know about the 20 year non-disclosure rule! LOL
