Zelda no Densetsu: The Hyrule Fantasy

Family Computer Disk System

Game Description:

Embark on a quest to find the Triforce, defeat Ganon, and save Princess Zelda in this enduring epic adventure.

Translation Description:

This is an English translation patch for Zelda no Densetsu: The Hyrule Fantasy. Make sure you use rom ver 1.1 when patching.

When using FCEUX you will need to find and add the FDS bios to the correct folder.

Once you get to the Title screen select the NES tab and select eject disk, then switch sides, then insert disk.

ROM / ISO Information:

  • Zelda no Densetsu - The Hyrule Fantasy (Japan) (v1.1).fds
  • CRC32: 8F2202BF (Headerless)
  • ROM/File SHA-1: 1429FBE3E62059994B6FF7C5E5E2A330831FAF63

  • Headered version of this rom is 3FBDDDCD. Recommend removing the header before patching this file. The readme doesn't say it has to be run on a headerless rom, but it does mention that it adds a header, which it does. Ran this patch on both versions and there are 126 different bytes randomly throughout the file. That can't be good.
  • Delete the header in a Hex Editior if you can't find the headerless version. Bytes to delete are below.

Finally - We can relive Zelda 1 in it's original FDS format

Reviewed By: semi91 on 22 Apr 2017

I have always wanted to go through the original Zelda game on the FDS. The added umphh of the extra sound channel the FDS offers brings an already great soundtrack over the top.

Until now I have held off as even though I didn’t need the text in English to make it through the game, it makes the trip that much more enjoyable.

The added bonus of having the secret chime restored just adds a cherry on top.

Curious about the original after playing Breath of the Wild? Or simply an old school gamer like myself who always meant to go back and give the original one more run through? THIS is the version to play.

Kudos to the translator for giving this to the masses!

As the developer himself mentioned in the readme he had to shorten some text to make it fit. The only possible improvement here could be the application of Tomato’s perfect Zelda translation. Until that is possible, this is my go-to version of Link’s first adventure!

Version 1.1 Recommended - Yes
