Nintendo released an easier version of Zelda for Switch Online users

NES – Nintendo Switch Online adds The Legend of Zelda special version

"Living the life of luxury!", this "souped-up" version is more novice friendly than the original, which offered very little explanation or hand holding after its opening moments.

Nintendo does plan to develop "SP" versions of other NES classics, once again great news for younger players. Players who beat the game will also unlock a harder version to play through afterward. And they did indeed release NES Open Tournament Golf, Dodge Ball, and Solomon's Key.

"In this souped-up version of The Legend of Zelda, you'll start with a ton of rupees and items!", the game's description reads.

Today's additions bring the NES library up to 24 games. I grew up with Nintendo being the big platform, so it's like, 'Wow, we're actually doing video games for real now if we can get it on Nintendo!'

The Legend of Zelda Special Version also known as The Legend of Zelda: Living the Life of Luxury has been added to Nintendo Switch Online.
