The Legend of Zelda games you can play for free on Nintendo Switch Online

We dug into the Nintendo Switch Online catalog to discover all the Legend of Zelda games you can play while your copy of Tears of the Kingdom arrives.

The Legend of Zelda

Of course, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom was everything we expected it to be... and much more. Yesterday, Thursday, our colleagues in Spain published the review, giving it a fantastic and well-deserved 10, a score within reach of very few, and which their editorial coordinator, Salva Fernandez, defined as “the most ambitious game in the history of Nintendo”. Almost nothing.

“It has not been satisfied with being a sequel that simply polishes and expands its predecessor,” said Salva in his final conclusions. It is the culmination of an idea: a title capable of surprising and overwhelming in equal parts with every decision made. On one hand, it offers one of the best main plots of the franchise; on the other, an endless number of tools, possibilities, and novelties that make it our new favorite place to simply get lost for hours.”

With that, it is clear that what we have in front of us is simply gigantic, a game in which we will spend tens, hundreds of hours. But as much as it pains us, one day it will end, and maybe on that day we will want more Zelda. And what better way to discover the saga in an easy way? Well, the Nintendo Switch Online Catalog, and when we add the Expansion Pack, even more so.

Nintendo’s subscription service offers us a considerable amount of classic games from the company’s other past platforms - in addition to the Mega Drive - including, of course, several installments of the franchise created by Shigeru Miyamoto and Takashi Tezuka more than 35 years ago.
