BS The Legend of Zelda was an expanded version of The Legend of Zelda that was released for the Satellaview attachment of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System in Japan.
BS stands for Broadcast Satellaview (the Satellaview unit is commonly referred to as the BS-X). Using this add-on, you could download the game from the satellite and save it onto either the base unit’s memory or onto a BS-X Special Broadcast Cassette. The game was divided into four weekly “episodes.” These episodes were played live, at the same time as a video game tips show was running on the satellite network.The game was played in real-time. An onscreen clock showed the current time, and at various times on the clock certain events would happen. Sometimes all enemies on-screen would be killed or stunned, sometimes a fairy would appear, or occasionally the player would be granted an item upgrade for a limited time.
The gameplay was identical to its predecessor, but the maximum of Rupees was increased to 999 (rather than 255), the overworld was altered, and dungeons were completely different. This game is a must have for any huge Zelda fan! This game will not include a manual.
