The original ‘Legend of Zelda’ has a massive hidden area that one player finally opened, more than 30 years later

  • In 1986, the original “Legend of Zelda” arrived on the Nintendo Entertainment System and, subsequently, spawned a decades-long blockbuster franchise.
  • The original game’s open-world environment was massive at the time, and half of that world was hidden from players — it’s known as the “minus world.”
  • One intrepid YouTube creator managed to access to the game’s minus world recently. What he found is fascinating and bizarre.

The original “Legend of Zelda” for the Nintendo Entertainment System is a massive, open-world game — and it could’ve been even bigger.

That’s because the game’s voluminous open world was actually cut in half before the game’s release; the lower half is known as the game’s “minus world,” where elements of the game could be tested by its developers at Nintendo.
