Additional information about the original release is also welcome, such as a list version of this video.
There are multiple versions of Zelda II: The Adventure of Link.
Original Releases (FDS/NES)
The original release of the game has several differences between the Japanese Famicom Disk System version and the international Nintendo Entertainment System version.

For clarity, on glitch pages, the Japanese version will be referred to as FDS and the international version will be referred to as NES.
