Zelda II coming to Virtual Console Monday

Justin McElroy

Nintendo is marking the release of their 100th classic game on the Wii console with a biggie: The Legend of Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. The side-scrolling/top-down hybrid, thought by some to be the black sheep of the Zelda family, is set to drop in the U.S. on June 4.

We don't mean to stir up a fight here, but we always thought that Zelda II got a bum rap. Sure, It's a departure, but a few classics from the CD-i library, especially Link: The Faces of Evil, guarantee that it can never be the worst Zelda. That being said, Adventure of Link did inspire the gameplay for Faces of Evil, so perhaps we pardon it too soon. We'll let you decide for yourself on Monday.
