The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons is a The Legend of Zelda game for the Game Boy Color. It was developed by Capcom and Flagship. The game was released in tandem with The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages in 2001. The Oracle games make up the seventh and eighth installments of The Legend of Zelda series, and both are the first games of the main series that were not developed by Nintendo.

The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons is named after the Din, whose title is the Oracle of Seasons. The game takes place in Holodrum, where Link is sent to rescue Din from Onox, the self-proclaimed General of Darkness. The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons is more action-focused than The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages, which is more puzzle-oriented. The Oracle games are the last Game Boy Color games that Nintendo was directly involved with because of the Game Boy Advance's impending release at the time. Both games have unique features when played on a Game Boy Advance.

Both games can be interconnected through the Link System; after completing either game, the player can transfer their progress to the other game by either entering a password or by using a Game Boy Color-compatible Game Link cable. This is the only way for the player to achieve the true ending in each game.

In 2013, the Oracle games were released for the Nintendo 3DS's Virtual Console simultaneously.


In the opening, Link travels on the back of Epona to a castle (most likely Hyrule Castle) where the Triforce is held. The Spirit of the Triforce tells Link the world is in need of his heroics, and teleports him away. He lands in Holodrum, where he is knocked out by the fall but nursed back to health by Din, a dancer from a troupe of performers. However, she is actually the Oracle of Seasons in hiding from the evil general Onox, who swoops in at that moment to kidnap her. He imprisons her in a crystal, causing the Temple of Seasons to collapse, and causing the seasons across Holodrum to fall into disarray, causing damage to the natural order.

Link visits the Maku Tree for advice, but finds that with nature messed up, the tree has withered into a frail, forgetful state. Link is tasked with finding the eight Essences of Nature to restore his power. Along the way, he finds a dark parallel world called Subrosia, where the remains of the Temple of Seasons are. Inside, he gains the Rod of Seasons. Over the course of the game, he must return to imbue the rod with the power of each of the four seasons, allowing Link to use the rod to switch the region's current season.

After several essences have been gathered, the Gerudo witch pair Twinrova reveal themselves to be behind Onox's plot, hoping to sow destruction as part of a ritual. Eventually, Link restores the Maku Tree, who gives him a Huge Maku Seed that allows Link to enter Onox's Castle and fight the general head-on. After defeating him and freeing Din, the seasons are restored. However, Onox successfully managed to light Twinrova's Flame of Destruction.

In a Linked Game, Princess Zelda arrives midway through, and ends up kidnapped by Twinrova while she rallies the people of Horon Village. Link must travel to the Room of Rites where they have taken her as a sacrifice to revive Ganon. After defeating Twinrova, they sacrifice themselves instead, causing Ganon to resurrect as a mindless beast. Upon defeating him, the dungeon begins to collapse, and Link and Zelda are rescued by the Maku Tree's power. After a celebration, Link sets off in a boat to parts unknown, potentially setting up for the plot of The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening.
