Ports of The Legend of Zelda and Zelda II: The Adventure of Link for the Game Boy Advance were released as part of this series. The Legend of Zelda was released in Series One, while The Adventure of Link was part of Series Two, the final wave of releases outside of Japan.

Both ports featured updated, more accurate translations created for The Legend of Zelda: Collector's Edition, which included the English name of the Hidden Palace boss from Adventure of Link being changed from "Barba" to "Volvagia" to match the original Japanese.

In addition, in order to avoid causing seizures, the death animation of The Adventure of Link no longer flashes, instead opting for a solid red overlay.
