The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages / Oracle of Seasons Part of This Weeks Nintendo eShop Release Slate

-

4.0.3 JP4.0.3 JP

Given the franchise’s very long history, I don’t consider it surprising that for every gamer they have a different favorite Legend of Zelda game. For me two of perhaps my favorite installments in the series were Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons for the Gameboy Colour. These two games were sold individually, but if you owned both (or had a sibling you could swap with) using the games code system you could carry over some limited data and continue the story in the other game – leading to a finale that ties the two together.

While I think it is unfortunate the games haven’t received the attention I think they deserved (Physical collection re-release or something along those lines), they are both set to be released as part of the Nintendo 3DS’ virtual console from the 31st May 2013 and feature a limited time special offer price of $6.50 each (Originally $7.80 each). The entire release slate for the Nintendo eShop this week includes:
