This isn't just any ol' version of The Legend of Zelda, though. GameSpot spoke to creative director Thomas Grip who told the publication that he's a big fan of Nintendo and believes being able to play the game in handheld mode would bring a new dimension to the series.

The full list of inventory item the save gives you includes White Sword, Magical Shield, Blue Ring and Power Bracelet, Blue Candle, a Red Potion, a piece of meat, and three extra heart containers, in addition to a full bag of rupees, bombs, and keys.

You could argue giving players all the items from the get-go kind of defeats the objective of Zelda, but I can understand newer players just wanting to run around and explore Hyrule without all the stress and frustration. 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. It is essentially Zelda on steroids.

Brooks Koepka voted PGA Tour's top player of the year
But Koepka certainly has the inside track, with both Player of the Year awards going to the same player every year since 1992. Brooks Koepka has been named Player of the Year by the PGA Tour for the 2017-18 season, the organization announced Tuesday.

In this variant of the game, players start with all the equipment they might otherwise obtain throughout the game, in addition to a ton of rupees, the in-game currency of the franchise. Besides, after you beat this version of the game for the first time, you will be able to access a second quest that is much more hard. Players may also choose to purchase more items. We can already see progression-focused games, like Super Mario Bros.

The idea is to provide gamers with access to the later stages of the game that many may have missed out on when the game first debuted on the NES back in 1987 - it's a surprisingly hard and esoteric game.
