Celebrate The Legend of Zelda’s 35th anniversary with Tom’s Guide


The Legend of Zelda debuted for the Nintendo Entertainment System on February 21, 1986. Since then, we’ve followed Link, Zelda and Ganon on almost 20 unforgettable adventures. From intense swordplay to devious puzzles to wide-open exploration, The Legend of Zelda has always thrilled, delighted and surprised players. With The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in 2017, the series arguably came full circle, imbuing Hyrule with a quiet sense of mystery and wonder that players simply had to discover for themselves.

To celebrate 35 years of Zelda, the Tom’s Guide staff has put together a series of stories that highlight our personal favorite titles, as well as the impact the series has had on players, game design and even pop culture as a whole. The Legend of Zelda isn’t just a series of excellent games, after all; at this point, it’s an institution. By presenting a fresh take on age-old fantasy tropes, this ambitious series has always melded cutting-edge technology with rich tradition.

Read on to find out how the Tom’s Guide staff is celebrating The Legend of Zelda’s 35th anniversary, and what the games have meant to us over the years.
