Zelda Oracle Banner

The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages and The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons were recently confirmed for the 3DS Virtual Console, certainly welcome news for fans of the Game Boy Color double-act.

Nintendo had also confirmed that the link capability of the originals — which back in the day would have set gamers back a fair amount of cash — would be included for those that buy both downloads. Linking the games changes up the content and, most famously, gives you a different end boss.

While the titles were absent from the European Nintendo Direct broadcast today, the Nintendo of America equivalent announced that they would be available at a reduced price of $4.99 between 30th May and 20th June, a slight discount from the normal $5.99. The pitch is simple, for just under $10 you'll get both games and all of the linked goodness that comes with them.

We wouldn't rule out a similar promotion for Europe, but at the moment this is North America only.

Are you thinking of picking up both titles for the linked content? Let us know in the comments below.
