“May the way of the hero lead to the Triforce.”
Released on the one year anniversary of the Super Famicom in Japan, The Legend of Zelda: Triforce of the Gods arrived in the USA and Europe as The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past in 1992. Returning the to the oblique, top-down perspective of the original The Legend of Zelda, the third game in the franchise – actually a prequel (hence the name) – set many of what would become the series’ trademarks in stone. Leon, Josh, Ryan and Triforce-tattooed guest Leah Haydu – along with the Cane and Rinse community – revisit one of the Super Nintendo’s best-selling and seemingly most beloved games.
