You know, seeing this and Zelda II both having the protagonist and damsel roles swapped reminds me of both Donkey Kong: Pauline Edition and Super Mario Bros.: Peach Edition. I mean, I would’ve made a ROM Hack like this myself, but I never knew where to start. That, and it’s a gorgeous hack. Maybe there’s a “Green Ring” that substitutes the Red Ring so that Link will be wearing his usual green when he’s saved from Ganon…

UPDATE: I’ve noticed that there’s a lack of a patch for the “Gamecube Edition”, a modified version of the original where the Engrish intro from the original game is somewhat corrected and a “-2003″ is added next to the original copyright year (along with a further update in the NES Classic Edition where “peninsula” is spelled correctly).
