On this edition of the 1UPdate, we get into the background of possibly the greatest video game series in history: The Legend of Zelda!
Have you ever been curious why Link’s name is “Link?” Did you know the original overworld theme for The Legend of Zelda in 1986 was supposed to be Ravel’s “Boléro?” Or that an entry in the Legend of Zelda series is based, loosely, off of the television classic Twin Peaks? Even the late, great Robin Williams (who would have been 72 last week) was such a massive fan of The Legend of Zelda that he named his own daughter after the titular princess.
Open this week’s 1UPdate treasure chest and learn more about the incredible video game series, The Legend of Zelda.
