Unfortunately, unlike most other Virtual Console games, A Link to the Past isn’t the original version so it still runs in 50hz mode, meaning there is a slow down compared to the Japanese and North American versions. If you have only played the game on the European SNES and/or Wii, then you won’t notice any difference, but you will do if you’ve seen the other versions in action.

Nintendo raised the bar to incredible levels with their third Zelda adventure, just the same way that they launched their 16-bit console with perhaps the finest 2D Mario platformer. Many would argue that A Link To The Past represents the pinnacle of the franchise, and playing either on-screen or on the Wii U GamePad certainly proves that the passage of time has done nothing to dull its magical impact.

A Consola Virtual da Wii U recebe mais um clássico que devia chegar a todos os jogadores. Os anos passam e a magia que The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past ofereceu há 23 anos permanece. Uma aventura magnífica que marcou gerações e que continua fresca, apesar de tecnicamente apresentar algum envelhecimento evidente. Um dos melhores jogos da série Zelda, notável pela magnífica jornada e pelo ambiente maravilhoso que oferece.
