A song for the ages
This review originally went live in 2013, and we're updating and republishing it to mark the game's arrival in the Nintendo Switch Online Game Boy / Game Boy Color library. Ever since The Legend of Zelda released on the NES, Nintendo has played the franchise relatively close to its chest. Series creator Shigeru Miyamoto has had...
In typical Nintendo fashion, the company this week shadow-launched not one, but two Legend of Zelda titles on the Nintendo Switch Online service. The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages originally started life on the Game Boy back in 2001 by the now defunct Capcom subsidiary Flagship. The games remain fan...
Where does Tears of the Kingdom rank?
We've now updated this reader-ranked Zelda list with the latest entry, Tears of the Kingdom. Remember, this list is dynamic and governed in real-time by each game's User Rating on our games database. Therefore, it is subject to change even after publication! In order to rate any of the games on the list below...
Just one more run...
It's Saturday and you know what that means. That's right, it's time for a spot of the ol' gaming. There have been a good number of highlights at Nintendo Life this week. We got a large helping of Splatoon 3 news as we received a first look at the upcoming Drizzle Season and new Deep Cut amiibo — we're still in love with Bi
Oracle of Ages & Seasons return
In a new Switch Online update today Nintendo has added the Game Boy Color classics The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages and The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons. Both of these titles were originally released on the handheld system in 2001. These games can be played individually, in any order but you'll get even more...
Yes, we want this
Despite the significant strides the Legend of Zelda franchise has made over the years in terms of sheer graphical fidelity and scope, there's something infinitely charming about the earlier Game Boy titles. Whether it be Link's Awakening or Oracle of Seasons/Ages, the original portable entries to the series introduced unique...
Hats off to our competitors!
Hello folks, and welcome to another edition of Box Art Brawl! Last week, we took a look at one of the Game Boy Advance's launch games: Castlevania: Circle of the Moon. As expected, the Japanese cover art with its landscape orientation and additional characters like Dracula and Hugh Baldwin absolutely nailed the poll...
Here we go again
Nintendo leaker markomaro is being cagey on Twitter, and with no Zelda news to keep us sane, his latest tweet has got people speculating. Let's take a look at the tweet in question: Right, well, that's not much to go on, is it? That's like us tweeting out a picture of Epona and saying "keep an eye out." If it turns out to be...
To celebrate the 35th anniversary of The Legend of Zelda, we're running a series of features looking at a specific aspect — a theme, character, mechanic, location, memory or something else entirely — from each of the mainline Zelda games. Today, Gavin ponders how the Oracle games demonstrated just how well outside developers had...
We all live in a Pokémon world
Now I always remembered being absolutely obsessed with Pokémon and The Legend of Zelda growing up in the 90's, but after recently uncovering a few boxes of my childhood school papers at my family's place, the word "obsessed" took on an entirely different meaning. These boxes contained plenty of random essays, math...

And there are "no plans" for Oracle remakes
Japanese video game developer Grezzo has made a name for itself over the years re-releasing older Zelda games on newer Nintendo systems. It started out with The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D in 2011 and followed this up with The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D in 2015. In between, it has worked on...
Two Zeldas at half price
The latest batch of My Nintendo game discounts for Europe has now gone live, giving players the usual chance to grab a handful of games at discounted prices. There are six new discounts up for grabs this time around, all for the 3DS (looks like the poor Wii U has been left out this month). As always, you can take advantage...
Warping through the folds of time, Link faces one of his most perilous quests ever.
Using the legendary power of the Triforce, Link travels to a distant land known as Labrynna where Veran, the Sorceress of Shadows, has developed a scheme to alter Labrynna's past. Through trickery and deceit, Veran harnesses the power of Nayru, the Oracle of Ages, and travels 400 years into the past. Before the Sorceress of Shadows can complete her dark mission, Link must use the Harp of Ages to save the day.
