Where Gaming Comes Alive


This collection of games is most likely to be coveted by many of the hardcore Zelda fans, as well as new gamers. It brings back four of the most popular Zelda games in their original, mostly unchanged versions: Link's very first quest, The Legend of Zelda; his second quest, The Adventure of Link; the first time he incarnated in 3D, Ocarina of Time; and the journey through Termina, Majora's Mask.

In addition to these games, which are included in full version, the following features were added as well:

It should be noted that the story displayed in the two NES games, when START is not pressed, has been rewritten to correct all mistranslations. These changes would be retained in the GBA and Wii releases.

Promotion History

In North America, Collector's Edition was published as a free promotional disc originally given out to Nintendo Power members with 5 or more registered games at For a limited time, a player could also receive the disc free with a new purchase of a Nintendo GameCube, or from purchasing a subscription or subscription renewal to Nintendo Power.

It was also released in Europe, where there were several ways to obtain the disc. The game was initially bundled in a limited edition Mario Kart: Double Dash!! GameCube package. Nintendo later made the title available to GameCube owners who mailed them proof of purchase of certain first party GameCube titles. Eventually the disc could even be purchased from the Nintendo of Europe website in their stars catalogue (a scheme that offers items in return for 'stars' collected in leaflets with all Nintendo games) for 4500 stars.


Although the game mentions "sound irregularities" on the disc as a result of porting Majora's Mask to the GCN, no mention was made of another widespread issue. It seems to be common for the game to freeze play without warning. Supposedly this problem can be encountered less if one opts not to use the rumble function.

When I received The Legend of Zelda: Collector's Edition in the mail in January 2004, Ii was excited. Now, I would be able to play the entire (at the time) Zelda collection on the Gamecube, and with four games in one, it would be considered one of Nintendo's best collections. The games in this collection are as follows:    The Legend of Zelda (NES, 1987): The one that started it all. Yes, the graphics may be primitive by today's standards, and you'll likely need a walkthrough …
