Xbox Boss Phil Spencer Praises Nintendo's Zelda Franchise On Its 35th Anniversary

Nintendo's fans are celebrating The Legend of Zelda's 35th anniversary this week, and as part of the celebrations, Xbox boss Phil Spencer has given some very brief thoughts on the franchise.

Talking to Inverse, Spencer highlighted how the iconic Nintendo franchise has "brought joy to so many people over the past 35 years", ever since the original game was first released all the way back in 1986.

"Gaming has a rich history of transporting us to new worlds and on new adventures, these journeys fold into our own lived experiences and become a part of us. The Legend of Zelda is an iconic franchise that has brought joy to so many people over the past 35 years and is still going strong."

Spencer is no stranger to praising Nintendo and its games, even appearing on a virtual talk show called 'Animal Talking' set within the Nintendo Switch title Animal Crossing: New Horizons late last year.

Of course, there's no way of actually enjoying the Zelda franchise for ourselves on Xbox, but if you're looking for some great alternatives, we recently highlighted a list of 10 Zelda like-games you can play on your Xbox instead!
