Description (in English): 

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past is an action-adventure game developed and published by Nintendo for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. It is the third game in The Legend of Zelda series and was released in 1991 in Japan and 1992 in North America and Europe.

A Link to the Past focuses on Link as he journeys to save Hyrule, defeat the dark lord Ganon, and rescue the descendants of the Seven Sages. It returns to a top-down perspective similar to the original The Legend of Zelda, dropping the side-scrolling gameplay of Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. It introduced series staples such as parallel worlds and items including the Master Sword.

Released to critical and commercial success, A Link to the Past was a landmark game for Nintendo and is widely considered one of the greatest video games of all time. Over four million copies have been sold worldwide. A Link to the Past was ported to the Game Boy Advance as A Link to the Past and Four Swords, and was ported for the Wii, Wii U, and New Nintendo 3DS via the Virtual Console. In 2017, Nintendo rereleased A Link to the Past as part of the Super NES Classic Edition. A direct sequel, A Link Between Worlds, was released for 3DS in November 2013.
