The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (Zeruda no Densetsu Kamigami no Triforce in Japan, lit. "The Legend of Zelda: Triforce of the Gods") is an action-adventure game developed and published by Nintendo for the Super Nintendo, and the third installment in The Legend of Zelda series. It was released in Japan on November 21, 1991, in North America on April 13, 1992, and in Europe on September 24, 1992. The project was led by Shigeru Miyamoto and his team.

The game uses a top-down perspective similar to the original The Legend of Zelda, instead of the side-scrolling format of Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. A Link to the Past expanded on the original's mechanics, introducing gameplay features that have become hallmarks of the Zelda series, such as multi-level dungeons, the Master Sword, the Hookshot, and parallel worlds. It was well-received and is often considered one of the best installments of the series. It sold over four million copies and many critics and fans consider it one of the greatest video games ever made.

In 2002, Flagship ported the game to the Game Boy Advance. The re-release itself had a few differences, and the cartridge also includes a multiplayer mode titled The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords, the first multiplayer title in the series. The original Super Nintendo version was later re-released on the Wii Virtual Console in Japan on December 2, 2006, in North America on January 22, 2007, and in Australia on March 23, 2007.
