 The  Dead Poets Club”) to name his own daughter Zelda (31). It’s been 35 years since the first part of the series was published.

It all started in 1986

While the young protagonist Link took up sword and shield for the first time in Japan on February 21, 1986, Western video game fans had to be patient until 1987.

However, development is progressing smoothly and fans will receive new information later in the year.

 The  Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword” published in 2011 for the Nintendo Wii is to get a new HD version for the Switch, which will be available from July 16, 2021.
