Shin Zelda Densetsu is a complete overwrite of The Legend of Zelda, made by Lord Steak over 10 years ago. In a novel twist, the player must guide Princess Zelda on a quest to rescue Link from the forces of evil.
The overworld has been completely revamped, with few landmarks or routes recognizable from the original game, if any.
The same goes for the dungeons. Instead of numbered dungeons, they are identified using symbols of the Zodiac, another interesting twist.
The bugfixed version of the game released by Chris Miller was perfect except for one game breaking bug; it was impossible to get the Raft in the 2nd Quest. That has been fixed, so that the player can beat the game in it’s entirety. Other changes have been made to the game.
The original readme is included in the file with the updated patch. A Word document listing all the changes made to the game is also included.
Use the PRG-0 version of the rom. PRG-1 version will cause glitches.
Lunar IPS is recommended for patching.
UPDATE 10/NOV/2014: There was an unintended bug in Level-7 in the 2nd Quest. In the second room, there is a room full of yellow Wizzrobes. After beating them and pushing the block, a chime could be heard, but nothing else happens. This has been fixed. Apologies to everyone for the inconvenience.
