The Legend of Zelda’s Oracle Series Arrives on Nintendo 3DS eShop May 30th

At long last, The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons will be available to purchase on the Nintendo 3DS eShop.

The Legend of Zelda – Two Classic Games: The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages and The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons will soon be available for the first time since their original release on Game Boy Color in 2001. Originally developed by Capcom, the games are headed to the Virtual Console service for Nintendo 3DS. The games are interconnected: Playing one unlocks secrets in the other. The games are scheduled to launch in the Nintendo eShop on May 30.

I’m extremely excited for these two releases, as I missed the original release (no Game Boy Color), and I’ve been trying to acquire copies locally for years without any luck. As noted earlier, I love classic Zelda, and this year is looking very good for that!
