Imagine waking up and coming downstairs to your gaming lair to find the game waiting for you. Mom and dad had gone to Buffalo the day prior and picked it up. ALttP is the first Zelda game I managed to finish and really enjoyed. pic.twitter.com/wHaAlnwNQi

Today is the 29th anniversary of the release of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. I beat it for the first time just a few weeks ago. Such a great game! pic.twitter.com/AKIJihPAyA— Greg (@GregWiker) April 14, 2021

Happy 29th anniversary to Zelda: Link to the Past. I just played through it on the Switch's SNES emulator, and found that the longer I played, the more I enjoyed it. pic.twitter.com/ixPBjA6YSd— Andy Peterson (@TenPoints4Andy) April 13, 2021
It's the Smash alt we desperately need.
With today being a Link to the Past's anniversary, how have we never gotten a simple pink haired alt for Link in Smash? It would be a very simple reference— Carter Stephens #TailsGang (Free Nairo) (@tailsBOOM1992) April 13, 2021
