A few weeks ago, we started publishing weekly Zelda guides on Squareknot, a social network for step-by-step guides. This week, we’re taking it back to the very beginning with a guide for the game that started it all, The Legend of Zelda.

It’s a simple, but widely unknown fact that you can save without dying in the original Legend of Zelda for NES. Better yet, the trick also works with Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. So head over and check out our newest Squareknot guide for how to save without dying in The Legend of Zelda for NES.

We publish new Zelda guides on Squareknot every Monday, so make sure to follow us there. And tell us what guides you’d like to see on Squareknot in the comments!

    Yep, never knew this when I had the game on my original NES. My parents would be like, “Go to bed!” And I’d reply, “Just wait a second, I need to kill Link.” “Hurry up.” “I’m dying as fast as I can!”
