Nintendo Switch Online Adds Two Classic The Legend of Zelda Games

Nintendo Switch Online has added The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages and The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons.

The Game Boy Color Classics are now playable for everyone with a Nintendo Switch Online membership as part of the Game Boy – Nintendo Switch Online library.

Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages are two action-adventure The Legend of Zelda spin-offs developed by Flagship, a subsidiary of Capcom, and released in 2001 for the Game Boy Color handheld and re-released on the Virtual Console for the Nintendo 3DS in 2013. This release marks both games’ debut on Nintendo Switch.

In Oracle of Ages, Link battles to prevent Veran, Sorceress of Shadows, from plunging the Land of Labrynna into an endless night. In the game, Link can bend time (if a river blocks Link’s path in the present, he can travel to the past and move a stone, redirecting the flow of water). He can even plant a seed in the past and, in the present, see full-grown trees and vines. Impa and the giant Maku Tree make an appearance.

In Oracle of Seasons, Link fights general Onox in the land of Holodrum. Link can change the seasons to help prevent the land from dying. For example, if Link finds a small plant at the bottom of a cliff, by transforming the season to spring he can use the newly grown flower to get to the top. He can also turn lake water into ice by shifting the season to winter.

What’s cool is by linking the two games through their password system, some characters and enemies change between the two stories. Items can be upgraded or transported, and you can discover the evil force moving behind the scenes.
