Can you guess the retro game from the riddle below?

In the week of August 7, 1987, a game was set ablaze,

On a console where adventure fans praised.

With a young knight clad in green attire,

Embark on a quest that will never tire.

Rescue the princess, defeat the evil king,

In this action-packed game, courage is the thing.

Explore dungeons, discover secrets untold,

In a fantasy land where legends unfold.
