Today in History: November 19th, 2006- The Legend of Zelda Arrives on Nintendo Wii Virtual Console

Triverse writes, "Anyone that is a classic Nintendo gamer, was a gamer during the late 80′s or a retro gamer at heart, will know the impact The Legend of Zelda represents in gaming. This was a pivotal game for Nintendo in the early days, it was one of the first of its kind, it represented a new style of game that was not seen before. The only competition that Nintendo had during this time were themselves as Atari was floundering with the Atari 7800, Sega was selling Master Systems in hardware stores and the American consumer themselves. Not too long ago prior to the release of The Legend of Zelda, Atari had nearly single handedly killed gaming in North America by allowing shoddy games to be released. Nintendo needed a winner and they got one." (3DS, Retro, The Legend of Zelda, Wii, Wii U)
