It’s been a while since I did a session of the awesome fan-game The Legend of Zelda: Mystery of Solarus (back in April, actually), and I’ve really been wanting to go ahead and finish this game off. It’s a great game, and one that people really do owe it to themselves to download and play, and I think it’s about time to complete it.
However, I recently discovered that the bone key that I wondered about a while back actually can be used to get the player the most powerful sword in the game. This sword upgrade is optional; however, it’s twice as strong as the sword I had going into this video, and considering that we’re about to go into Ganon’s Lair, it seems to make sense for us to have the advantage of a stronger weapon. However, the location of the sword was a mystery to me, and it was only after digging around online that I found out that there was a hidden passage in Dungeon 8. What bugs me about this is that as far as I can tell, there’s no hint at where this sword was hidden, or that there was a secret in that specific room, which kind of makes it something you’d really only discover by accident, unless I missed a vital NPC at some point who would have told me about it.
Nonetheless, after some poking around, I did manage to find the path to the weapon, and it’s actually pretty unique because it takes you through different dungeons in what looks like a rather interesting connection of tunnels, with the sword itself being hidden in a chest in one of the dungeons that we couldn’t get to before. Very cool.
So, next time, get ready for us to finally tackle Ganon’s Lair and beat this game!
