The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages and Seasons Coming to 3DS

Oracles Japanese eShop

Awesome news for any 3DS Zelda fans that are outside of Japan! According to Eiji Aonuma, the current Zelda producer, both The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons will be coming to the 3DS’ Nintendo eShop. The Zelda producer posted this cheer inducing news on the Wii U’s MiiVerse, and assured fans that the games will be released on the Nintendo eShop before the beginning of this summer. They have already been released on Japan’s eShop last month, and fans knew it was only a matter of time before the triangle loving adventurer travelled abroad once again.

Aonuma also announced that the Link System codes are still intact and entirely usable to share your data between games and to unlock secrets between them. This is great news to hear for anyone who was fearing the games’ content would be slightly butchered for their eShop release.

  • Have you been patiently waiting for the Oracle games? Or could you care less? Please share what your favorite title in the Zelda Series.

    I really love the two Oracle games, but my favorite, without a doubt, has to be Majora’s Mask. The dark atmosphere in that game and apocalyptic scenario are just amazing and really stand out in the franchise. (Please come to the 3DS as a remake!) ='(
