The lights are on
The only Zelda game that isn't a legend, Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, is now available on the Wii U Virtual Console.
The game is $4.99 to download, unless you own the Wii Virtual Console
version of the game, in which case it will cost you a dollar to upgrade.
As is the case with all Wii U Virtual Console games, you can play the
game on the television, or exclusively on the GamePad.
If modern Zelda is more your thing, Wind Waker HD for Wii U is coming October 4, and A Link Between Worlds is coming to 3DS November 22.
Our TakeMore classic Virtual Console games on Wii U is always good thing. The Virtual Console's releases are still trickling a little slower than I think we'd like, but easy access to Zelda classics is nothing to complain about.

Kyle, it is a legend of brutal difficulty from the past.
I might pick this up. The only classic I've never played.
I already got this on my 3DS from the Ambassador program. I kinda dig the combat (and you can jump!), but the difficulty makes my thumbs bleed.
Oh the love/hate relationship my prepubescent self had with this game...
Good news to hear!
$1.00 is a great deal!! I purchased this first thing on Friday.
I still have this on my NES. Great game, freaking hard though. I made it through the last temple and could never beat Thunderbird once, let alone Dark Link right after.
This is the first game I ever played on NES. Got to the last dungeon but never finished it. Now that I'm older, I should play through and check this one off as done.
Would love the entire Zelda collection up to windwaker on the 3ds or 2ds. Then I would buy a dedicated handheld just to have all my Zelda's in one place.
