Long before a link was popularised as a clickable internet shortcut, it was also the name of a loveable character on the NES.

Last year saw the silver anniversary of Super Mario Bros, which in turn generated anniversary editions of the Wii and re-releases of the SNES classics.

While a similar notion hasn't been announced for The Legend of Zelda, we can at least look forward to Ocarina of Time 3D coming to Nintendo's next handheld sometime this year.
