Playground arguments over the quality of Nintendo versus Sega games happened all the time in the late ’80s and ’90s. But did hardcore fans ever expect to drop the old rivalry and watch these two Japanese game companies create games together?
Probably not, but it eventually happened. Friendly cross-over titles like Mario & Sonic at the Olympics poke fun at that relationship, but Sega has taken the next step and inserted another important Nintendo franchise into its latest update for Sonic Lost World. In it, players can take the blue hero for a spin through The Legend of Zelda Zone — a free stage that is now available for download exclusively through the Wii U eShop.
Take a look at the trailer below courtesy of SEGA of America, which features more Legend of Zelda Easter eggs than you can shake a Master Sword at.
