Finally, fans have two long-awaited Zelda titles coming soon to Switch: The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages and The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons. At February’s Nintendo Direct, the company announced that Game Boy and Game Boy Advance titles will be coming to Nintendo Switch Online and Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack.
No release date for the Oracle games is yet available. Instead Nintendo noted that the Zelda titles are to be “added in the future.” The inclusion of these games brings the Nintendo Switch that much closer to being the “ultimate Zelda machine,” further replacing the need for fans to hang on to the Wii U.
For those unfamiliar with the Oracle games, a password system exists that allows players to link together the two games, sharing gear upgrades between the two adventures and unlocking a third section of the overarching story once the two games have been completed.
The Nintendo Switch Online subscription is priced at $19.99 USD per year. You can find more details here.
