The game shifted a few millions copies and was reissued a few times in various compilations. It is, with Super Mario Bros one of the more iconic game of the NES, Nintendo, and video games in general.
As for the story, Every one knows it too. The prince of Darkness, Ganon (who appears here as a huge pig-like being), has obtained the Trifoce of Power, one of the three parts of an extremely powerful magical artefact. To hide it from him, the Princess Zelda splits the Triforce of Wisdom in eight pieces and scatters it in eight dungeons all over the land of Hyrule. Ganon then proceeds to kidnap princess Zelda and retain her in his own dungeon. Prior to her capture, Zelda sends her maid, Impa, to get help. Impa is then attacked by Ganon's minions, but is saved by a warrior, Link, who is the hero of this quest. At the start of the game, Link sets on his quest to obtain the Triforce of Wisdom, in order to confront Ganon and free the princess Zelda.
