Hack of The Legend of Zelda


My goal in this hack was to answer the question: if Zelda 1 was released today, what would it look like? There may have been gameplay improvements, but I’ll leave those for much more talented programmers. I’ve set out to fix the parts of the localization and presentation that are likely to have 21st century gamers scratching their heads.

Changes include:

  • Restoring the unique font from the original FDS game
  • Re-localized text to better reflect the original intent in elegant English
  • A re-vamped intro story and treasure scroll
  • One-rupee pickups are now yellow instead of flashing blue
  • Some sprites (Link’s shields, gravestones, and Darknuts) were updated to better match the designs in modern Zelda games
  • The Zelda logo and sword on the title screen are redone
