Legend of Zelda Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages to Grace Japan's 3DS Virtual Console

When I was twelve my GameBoy Color was stolen during an athletics training session, along with my life’s collection of GameBoy cartridges. I was playing The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons then, and never got to finish it.

Fortunately it looks like I may no longer have to mentally hate myself for playing it on an emulator. Yesterday’s Nintendo Direct announced that both Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons will hit the 3DS Virtual Console in Japan come Feb 27 2013.

Granted, it’s only for Japan and only in Japanese, but this raises hope that it will someday make the jump to the US store. Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons will cost just 600 yen each, or 1000 yen for both.
