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

Two of the lost gems of the Zelda series, The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages, are being re-released on the Nintendo 3DS.

So it’s not enough that we get great, high caliber games like Super Mario 3D Land and Fire Emblem: Awakening – we also get forgotten classics and quality remakes. Despite its rocky start, the 3DS is quickly becoming one my favorite gaming devices.

Save those oracles, you sexy minx.

For those of you who haven’t played the Oracle games, here’s your chance. Featuring old school Zelda presentation mixed with brand new puzzles and never before seen weapons, Capcom’s stab at Zelda proved every bit as enduring and innovative as the rest of the series. And, thankfully, the “game link” system will survive the adaptation, so the functionality – and epic true ending – will remain intact.

It’s a good time to be Zelda fan, folks. I’m looking forward to diving back in to both of these beloved titles as we await the Wind Waker remake. Are you going to pick them up?

  1. My brother and I got really into these one summer. They are so deeply elaborate, and generally awesome. Not sure if I will re-pick up one or the other (or both) but definitely have fond memories.

    1. Yeah, they’re great. I was slightly on the fence about them, but getting the chance to play them again on the giant 3DSXL screen has sold me.

  2. I still need to get a 3DS but one of the reasons I am excited is for some of the older Gameboy games like these. I didn’t have a Gameboy until the Advance and missed out on some of these classics.

    1. As appreciative as I am of companies continuing to push the medium forward, I love it when they revisit and update beloved classics.

  3. Since then, I have been feasting on piping hot, delicious home cooked pizzas, which I have eaten whilst sitting on the beach at night. Just be sure to sprinkle the bottom with cornmeal so the pizza will slide easier and pull the oven rack out so you aren’t likely to get injured while sliding it onto the pizza stone. Although the creation of flat bread with toppings resembles a green-onion pancake, it remains a mystery still whether the history of pizza starts with China.
