As far as Super Nintendo rarities go, there are very few which can rival the likes of Whirlo, X-Zone and Super Chase HQ. The Zelda Gold Pack, a big box version of The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past containing a strategy guide, is one of these. Being a Zelda title and a Scandanavian exclusive, it's currently at the centre of a bidding war.
The big box Super Nintendo game most retro gamers will be familiar with is Super Metroid. Like the Zelda Gold Pack, Super Metroid came bundled with a large strategy guide and the game cartridge. Where the two differ though is that the Zelda Gold Pack also contains a regular size Super Nintendo game box inside containing the game cartridge.
Aside from the game being bundled in a limited edition box with a strategy guide, there are no real differences to set apart the actual game. Those who already have the regular version of A Link To The Past can rest easy and continue enjoying their Hyrule adventure. Fans of the Zelda series and retro game collectors, however, have a battle more fierce than one with Ganon on their hands. As this elusive rarity has not been seen on eBay for quite some time, you can expect this title's final bid to be one which requires a huge rupee wallet.
