It's dangerous to go alone! Take this.

With those words Link took the wooden sword and his shield and embarked on a journey to locate the Triforce of Courage which has been split into 8 pieces by Princess Zelda. The evil Ganon has unleashed a terrible evil in Hyrule, and it is up to Link to restore peace.

The Legend of Zelda went on to sell over 6.5 million copies worldwide1. The title spawned the Zelda series which as of July 2007 has sold more than 52 million units2. The game also was the first game to allow the player to save their progress (via battery-powered RAM)3
