Zelda Parallel Worlds - The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past fan overhaul celebrates 10+ years

Oh what a glorious day it is today for Zelda fans, as in celebration of 10 years of its first release v1.0 by Euclid & SePH, The Legend of Zelda : Parallel Worlds on the SNES has been enhanced and improved upon with a ton of new additions and fixes by qwertymodo. Regarded as one of the hardest and most popular hacks as a fan overhaul of the Legend of Zelda : A link to the Past, already had new graphics, new music, a new overworld/underworld and a new storyline, but as of today it's even more awesome!
