Some would argue that this is the game's most memorable contribution

Nintendo has confirmed that Zelda II: The Adventure of Link will be hitting the European 3DS Virtual Console on 13th September.

The game - which was originally released on the Famicom Disk System in 1987 and the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1988 - has already been made available through the 3DS Ambassador program.

If you missed out on getting it for free then it's worth a look, although you should be warned that it's one of the franchise's more 'unique' titles. Check out our Zelda II: The Adventure of Link review for the full low-down.
