And then later...
Uncle: "Link...you must rescue Princess Zelda. Our people are fated to do so. But do not fall victim...to fate. Link... I shall always remember...our time...together..."
Right now, I can hear the Zelda Symphony rendition of that theme that plays when you're out in the rain. (I don't know the official title, but I do call it "A dark and stormy night".) Other than that, there's nothing I have to say aside from what's already been said. ALttP is the first Zelda I have ever seen, let alone played. And I was so young at the time that I didn't pay much attention to the tone that's presented by the scene this picture depicts. (I must have been watching my Dad play it when I first saw this scene, however, but still.)
Even to this day, ALttP is one of my favorite Zeldas.
