      1. The Oracle games were one of the only Zelda games I missed back in the day so this is a huge plus for me.

    1. I did the same since the store’s vague ‘coming next week at 9am’ made it sound like monday, so now i have 20 bucks tempting me to buy the megaman series for the 2nd time (ps2 copy). a slight annoyance but oh well, its nothing like their youtube controversy

      1. Seasons has a bigger emphasis on combat, while Ages has a bigger emphasis on puzzles, and if you use the code you get at the end of one[doesn’t matter which one you play first], you can carry over your adventure into the second game, which will allow you to unlock new secrets in both games as well as drastically change the final boss of the game and a few other small elements of the story.

        It’s worth every penny to get both, but be prepared to write down a lot of codes if you’re the kind of player that wants to get every single secret there is.XD

      2. Basically this. I played both and they’re definitely separate enough for your money, unlike Pokemon Red vs. Pokemon Blue (which you only need one to see 99% of the content, the other 1% being the extra ‘mons).

        I came here curious to know how the link system works if on the same console; glad to know it will work. Don’t care if I have to write down the (ridiculously long >_>) passwords. I did it back in the day and I can do it again :)

  2. You don’t need to ‘hack’ your phone, normal emulators work fine. Emulators have existed for a long long time on PCs too, so it shouldn’t surprise anybody. But fuck emulators, really… I already own both of the carts, but I’ll be buying the 3DS versions. The 3DS is great, the XL screen especially makes it all worth it. It’s Zelda, so I don’t mind paying again for them.

  3. How are they supposed to connect to each other? Because on the site they said you can unlock stuff in both games by progressing through the games counter part.

    1. You get a password at the end off the first one you play, and if you use that to start a file on the second game, the story changes and you can find more passwords around the game to unlock even more stuff, like your level 3 sword and shield.

    1. Both have different core storylines, and different worlds. Seasons focuses more on combat[and is my personal favorite of the two] while Ages focuses more on puzzle solving.
      Both get a different ending and a change to the final boss and small parts of the plot, when you use the code from the end of one of them to start a new file in the other game.

      1. A link to the past would have to be in my top 10 favourite games of all time. It’s the reason every other zelda disappoints me, I just loved that game so much. Can’t wait for the 3DS Zelda coming out.

      2. Well shit, that explains everything.XD Of course others are going to suck if you consider everything but your personal best to be inferior to the point of not playing.
        Try looking at them without your ALttP goggles on and maybe you’ll find a new level of entertainment in some of them.

      3. I honestly dont like ALTTP that much, it’s good….but that’s about it, i have issues with it, like how all the dungeons look too similar, my favourite 2D Zelda is easily Minish Cap, takes what i like about both the 2D, the and 3D Zelda’s theming, i love it.

  4. Hell yes! Never got to play these games back in the day. Which game came out first or does it not matter which order you play them in?

    1. they both came out at the same time. 2001. :3 It doesn’t matter which order you play them in really. Seasons focuses on more combat/action, while Ages focuses on puzzles (like others have said before me). So play whichever one you think you’ll have more fun with first. (But both are way fun– I played them both when I was younger and loved them!)

  5. I have a question. If you play Seasons first and put that password in Ages when starting a new file, is Ages’ gameplay and story then going to differ heavily from the version without password?

    1. There are a few plot differences, some are small things, some are big things, but gameplay is constant, with a few extra bonuses and changes
