Default Switch subscribers get a decked out NES Zelda save file

Subscribers to Nintendo's paid Switch Online service got an unexpected surprise today. Alongside the expected released of three new downloadable emulated Nintendo Entertainment System titles—NES Open Tournament Golf, Solomon’s Key, and Super Dodge Ball—Nintendo also offered a version of the original Legend of Zelda that lets players start with a bevy of powerful items.

The new version—marked with a "Special" tag in the UI and dubbed "Living the life of luxury!" in the description—doesn't seem to modify the core game ROM in any way (despite reports referring to it as a "hack"). Instead, the game simply uses a save file that gives Link immediate access to the White Sword, Magical Shield, Blue Ring, and Power Bracelet, along with a red potion, additional heart containers, some secondary items (Food, Letter), and a full complement of 255 rupees, eight bombs, and nine keys.
