Nintendo Switch Online members have access to games for the NES, Super NES and Game Boy. With the +Expansion Pack subscription, subscribers can enjoy classic Nintendo 64, SEGA Genesis, and Game Boy Advance games, with more titles being added as they become available.
This July, new games have been added to the Game Boy Nintendo Switch Online service!
Two of the legendary masterpieces, the latest of the same series that is also a worldwide smash hit, are now available at the same time!
The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages are available!
The two titles be added to Game Boy Nintendo Switch Online on July 27, 2023 are The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages and The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons, which were released simultaneously on Game Boy Color in 2001.
Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons share some of the same characters and items, but are two independent works with completely different maps, dungeons, and stories!
Since this is The Legend of Zelda series, I personally want those who are playing it for the first time to start with no prior knowledge, but for those of you who find it hard to start with something you don't know how it's going to be different, I'll give you a little background, but if you don't want any spoilers, close this article right now and pick up your Nintendo Switch!
The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons
In Oracle of Seasons, the Rod of Seasons is used to promote adventure through the use of seasonal features, such as plants growing in the summer and frozen water surfaces in the winter.
The dungeons and boss fights are relatively more active, and items that only appear in the Oracle of Seasons, such as the Roc's Cape, which allows you to glide after jumping, and the Magnetic Gloves, which uses magnetic power to move iron balls and Link himself.

The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages
In Oracle of Ages, players use the Harp of Ages to travel back and forth between the present and past eras to solve the mystery. Changing times in the same place will bring about various changes in the terrain, people, etc., so take advantage of these changes to explore the world.
The dungeons are full of tricks that involve puzzle-solving elements. It might be a good idea to approach boss fights not by attacking them head on, but by twisting your head a bit to figure out the path.The items that only appear in the Oracle of Ages are also useful for solving puzzles, such as the Staff of Somaria, which creates blocks that can be used as weights or footholds, and the Switch Hook, which switches Link's position with whatever it grabs.

Connect to the world with the PASSWORD!！？
The two titles are different in content, but since they both share the name 'Oracle of', they are not completely unrelated.
If you beat one of them, you get a password, and if you type the word into the other one, something happens... well, the best way to find out the details is to actually play the game and see for yourself.
It is recommended that you do not play both at the same time, but rather finish one before playing the other!
