Zelda fans had a long wait before The Legend of Zelda: A Link to The Past was released in April 1992, but it was worth it. The first Zelda adventure for the Super NES proved to be even bigger and more exciting than the original game. In fact, Zelda: A Link to the Past, turned to be the best RPG ever made to that date, and set a new level of interactive entertainment.

Set in an ancient time of fabulous palaces and bold warriors, A Link to the Past chronicles nothing less than a cataclysmic struggle between the forces of Light and Dark. Indeed, Link must venture from Hyrule into the Dark World, a place of overwhelming misery and suffering.

Taking full advantage of the Super NES's 16-bit processing power, A Link to the Past brought unprecedented detail and richness to adventure games. Link must explore multistory castles, towers and pyramids. Vivid touches like the fog shrouding the Lost Woods enhanced the player's sense of magic and drama. For A Link to the Past, developer Shigeru Miyamoto and his team created one of the most memorable casts of characters ever to grace a video game, including the elusive lord of Hyrule's waterways, Zora; the telepathic sage, Sahasrahla; and the perfidious magician, Agahnim.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past´s popularity was immediate and enduring. Even today, Nintendo players consistently rate it one of their favorite video games of all time.
