Nintendo has just announced that the two classic The Legend of Zelda games on Game Boy Color - Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons - are now available to play via the Nintendo Switch Online service. You can check out the announcement video below:
Released in 2001, both of the Oracle games contain all of the classic Zelda fun with their own unique spins on them. In Oracle of Ages, players can travel between the past and present which will happen often as the game has a heavy emphasis on puzzles. In Oracle of Seasons, players can change the seasons to one of four variations (spring, summer, fall, and winter) as they play through a game with a heavier emphasis on action.
The Oracle games are unique in that you can play whichever one you want first, then play the remaining game as if it were a sequel. This is done by beating one of the games, getting an in-game password, then entering in that password into the other game. This will result in some minor story differences as well as an extra final boss. The NSO trailer confirms that this aspect from the original games will still be present in this rerelease.
Both Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons are available now as part of the regular NSO subscription.

Author's Note: I played both games a while back but never got around to finishing them. I'll definitely try to change that soon. What do you think of this rereleases, and which one are you most excited to play? Let us know in the comments below!
