The Legend of Zelda: Living the Life of Luxury is a "souped-up version" of The Legend of Zelda for NES, added to the service in addition to the original version of the game. Basically acting like an in-built Game Genie, you start the game with every item and upgrade, making the adventure much easier from the get-go. There's also a "more difficult" Second Quest awaiting you if you complete it.

"Living the life of luxury!", this "souped-up" version is more novice friendly than the original, which offered very little explanation or hand holding after its opening moments.

Nintendo has made quite a sizable update to the NES library of games available on its Nintendo Switch console via the Nintendo Switch Online service, but one takes the cake: a special save file for The Legend of Zelda.


Solomon's Key - As Dana, a skilled and talented hero, you must strategically maneuver through over 40 stages using mysterious block-creation skills and other magical powers.

In a press release, Nintendo said we can expect that "special save data for other NES titles will become available in the future, offering fun new entry points into fan-favorite games". "Super Dodge Ball" released for the NES in 1989 and is loosely based on an arcade game with the same name that came out two years earlier. Metroid, the classic that started it all for the series, will make its debut, along with Mighty Bomb Jack and TwinBee.
