The Legend of Zelda
Reunite the Triforce and send Ganon packing.

But before she was caught, Zelda™ managed to shatter the Triforce of Wisdom and scatter its eight pieces throughout Hyrule. Begin your adventure by finding a small wooden sword in a dark cave. As you grow in stature, experience and strength, so do your weapons. Help Link™ collect the captured pieces of the Triforce, rescue the princess and thwart Ganon’s evil plans.
