Philips CD-i is a multimedia device and game console released by Philips in 1991. Three The Legend of Zelda titles were released on the console. All three games were subject to heavy criticism from fans and critics alike.


Nintendo partnered with Sony to create a CD-ROM peripheral for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System and later Philips. The peripheral was cancelled, and as a compromise, Nintendo allowed Philips to create games based on a few of their franchises, including the Mario series and The Legend of Zelda series.

In late 1993, Philips published two Zelda titles developed by Animation Magic on the same day, Link: The Faces of Evil and Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon. A third game developed by Viridis, Zelda's Adventure, was published in early 1996.
