CutscenesThis game and its two CD-I counterparts have lots of camp value, and because of this, they are a popular subject of YouTubePoop remixes etc.
DevelopmentThe reason Nintendo licensed their Zelda characters to Philips Interactive was because Philips and Nintendo were co-creating a CD-ROM add-on for the SNES. The contract between them allowed Philips to create games with the Mario and Zelda characters. Although Nintendo never released a CD-ROM add-on for SNES, they did have the legal contract with Philips, so Philips was able to create three Zelda-based games and one Mario-based game.
