The Legend of Zelda was the first game in the long running Zelda series made in 1987. Link sets out on an epic quest to rescue Princess Zelda from Ganon, an evil being determined to conquer the world by obtaining a Golden Power known as the Triforce.
On November 19, 2006, The Legend of Zelda was released on the Vitual Console service for Wii. With the Wii's classic controller, a player can get the feel of the original game.
After an evil army led by Ganon invaded the kingdom and stole the Triforce of Power (one of the three parts of the triforce), Hyrule was engulfed in chaos. In an act of desperation, Princess Zelda split the Triforce of Wisdom into eight fragments and hid them in secret dungeons throughout the land to prevent them from falling into Ganon's hands.
After these events, Impa was captured by Ganon's monsters. As the group of monsters surrounded her, a youth drove the monsters off. The boy's name was Link, and Impa told him of Hyrule's plight. Link resolved to save Zelda, but to do so, he had to find and reassemble the scattered fragments of the Triforce. At that moment, Link set off for Hyrule in an epic adventure.
