Pirate

The Legend of Zelda a Link To The Past Pirate China

In China, the super nintendo / super famicom was not officially released, but in 2004 a Chinese company called Waixing Science and Technology decided to launch this game on the Chinese market, this game is not a simple pirated translation, the game is trying to simulate A link to the past as much as possible, its title in Chinese (塞尔达传说-三神之力) means: Zelda: Triforce of the Gods, we can see that the cover of the game cartridge and instructions are from an anime that does not have nothing to do with zelda, but when it comes to playing it it is very similar, this game is the most similar to a remake of Zelda to Link To The past, they wanted to attract the Chinese public with a different cover, even some game sprites are modified and they are different from the originals to make it more like anime. This pirated version is quite rare to see, I found it on ebay for € 100 and it is still curious although it is not official.
