Back when the upcoming list of games was revealed for Switch Online's Nintendo Entertainment System catalogue, Nintendo of Europe alluded too some mysterious "SP" versions of classic games.

Yes, as promised, Solomon's Key, NES Open Tournament Golf and Super Dodge Ball have all arrived, bumping the standard roster of NES games up to 23 in total, but this new Zelda option takes that total up another notch.

The Big N also added a surprise entry into the mix: The Legend of Zelda: Living the Life of Luxury.

NES – Nintendo Switch Online adds The Legend of Zelda special version

Labelled as an SP (Special) release on the menu of the NES emulator app for Switch, this new version of The Legend of Zelda aims to offer newer fans an easier Zelda experience, which is curious. You'll begin with all equipment, incluing your White Sword, the Magical Shield, the Blue Ring, and even the Power Bracelet. There's also a "more difficult" Second Quest awaiting you if you complete it.

So there you go, the first enhanced NES game, while not going to be for everyone, it does raise the question, what would you like to see added/enhanced in other NES titles?

The Legend of Zelda is now available for download on the Switch, though you'll need a Switch Online subscription to get access to it. There are so many people who would have subscribed just for them if we had known.
