Today’s photo challenge of the day was in honor of both Flashback Friday and E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) we asked, which game is this? And, for extra credit, which game console was it played on?

If you said The Legend of Zelda for NES (Nintendo Entertainment System), then you are correct!

The Legend of Zelda was originally released on February 21, 1986, developed and published by Nintendo. It’s considered one of Nintendo’s most important franchises, with gameplay consisting of action, adventure, and puzzle solving. The story revolves around the playable character Link, who is given the task of rescuing Princess Zelda. As of December 2011, The Legend of Zelda franchise sold 67.93 million copies since the game’s release.

Have fun to all who are at E3 this week!
