  • Classic NES games have been memorized backwards and forwards by fans of Nintendo or pop culture in general. We all know which pipe in Super Mario Bros leads to the last world, we all know what order to do the levels and worlds in in Metroid, and, some of us know that for the longest time, the American version of The Legend of Zelda came with a typo, as the old man, the very same who gives you your first sword (“it’s dangerous to go alone, take this”), misspelled peninsula as “Penninsula”.

    Well, if George Lucas can continue tweaking his Star Wars films, then Nintendo can fix a little bitty typo, right? And that’s just what they did. Twenty years later in their rerelease of the game for the NES Classic. Finally, the world can breathe free, and continue enjoying Zelda for all the good healthy reasons.

  • What do you think? Is it fine for Nintendo to correct the typos in its games, or should it leave them alone? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter at @WhatsTrending.
