Today it was globally announced on another installment of Nintendo Direct that The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages will be priced for their 3DS eShop release at $5.99. However, for the first three weeks of release, the games will be available for the special price of $4.99. Additionally, it was announced that the two games would be able to retain their link ability in some way, allowing the retention of the secret ending/final boss being unlocked when you link the games together.
We’ll bring you any more information as it comes, so be sure and stick to Zelda Eternity for all your Zelda news!
Hey, folks! Boy, we’ve been gone a while, but we’re back today with something interesting to report on! If you’ve ever wondered how much the great Hyrule Castle would cost in real money (because you’ve wondered that before, right? RIGHT??), the folks at Movoto Blog (a blog focusing on real estate– of all things!) have weighed the information and have determined the most likely price of Hyrule Castle. Disregarding the fact that they didn’t account for the Rupee/US Dollar exchange rate, their estimates are worth a look if you’re in the market for a fictitious castle of your own! Heh heh. Fictitious real estate. A bit of an oxymoron, no? Anyway, click “read more” for the scoop!
Our friends over at Shinesparkers have recently announced their latest project: “Harmony of Heroes”, which is an upcoming free album that pays tribute to the Super Smash Brothers series. The announcement comes only months after the release of their previous album: Harmony of a Hunter.
This album, which is to be released 2014, will focus on music included in all three of the Smash Bros. games. And, if you were a fan of their previous work, you’ll be happy to hear that some musicians from the last album are returning to contribute to this one.

Zelda Sanctuary staff member Izagar has recently posted an interesting article about the upcoming A Link to the Past sequel. This article mainly discusses a current hot topic: the Master Sword’s return.
“Most veteran Zelda fans and even those introduced to a Link to the Past during the Gameboy Advance era remember this line at the end of the credits. With Ganon destroyed, peace reigned in Hyrule and the Master Sword fell into a deep sleep within the Lost Woods.”
Izagar cites the line “And the Master Sword sleeps again…FOREVER!”, and with the apparent return of the blade, many wonder about this quote.
The article shares the writer’s views on how the sword would awaken, as well as their views on a few other additions.

Youtube user WindMageMaster has put together a musical cover of the many memorable themes from the SNES classic, A Link to the Past. Since Nintendo recently announced that the next Zelda title will take place in the same world as A Link to the Past, now is the perfect time to take a listen. It’s time to, as the kids say, get hype, ladies and gentlemen!
And that’s it from me. Weegee, out!
A brand new Zelda game for the Nintendo 3DS has just been announced, set to take place in the world of A Link to the Past and releasing Holiday 2013!
While not much is known at this point (such as the title, though it is tentatively being referred to by the community as A Link to the Past 2), it appears to draw heavily upon the artistic and design style from ALttP in addition to remaining mostly top-down, while still bring new 3D aspects to the game. One such aspect is an ability of Link that was shown that allows him to become a moving drawing on the wall, shifting the camera perspective and allowing you to go places you otherwise wouldn’t be able to.
Hey, everyone. GameStop apparently listed two official strategy guides for the upcoming Wind Waker remake for the Wii U. As you can see in the image above, there are two of them. One being for the “Collector’s Edition”, and the other for the regular game. Now, we haven’t heard anything about a Collector’s Edition, and while it’s possible that a Collector’s Edition will see the light, this very well may be just for the strategy guide. Guess we’ll find out soon enough!
If you’ve visited the gaming sector of YouTube recently, it’s very likely that you’ve run into a debate about the portrayal of women in video games ignited by a video posted by feminist media critic Anita Sarkeesian entitled “Damsel in Distress: Tropes vs. Women in Video Games” (which can be found here). This video has created its fair share of controversy, but I’m not bringing it up to weigh in on that– I’ll leave the more qualified internet pundits to that job. The reason I’m bringing this controversy to the peaceful land of Zelda Eternity (Zelda Eternia?) can be seen above in a video response to Ms. Sarkeesian’s commentary. YouTube user KiteTales recently uploaded a video disputing Ms. Sarkeesian’s claim that Princess Peach, and her Hyrulian counterpart, our beloved Princess Zelda are negatively portrayed female characters. This video, I found, provided a somewhat different take on Princess Zelda’s character that I’ve only really seen once before on the internet, and I thought it deserved to have attention brought to it.
AHA! I have regained control of Zelda Eternity from Elias who randomly decided to turn evil for some reason… In the wake of our return and Elias magically returning back to normal, we are back with a new layout, “Version 8 – Old World Blues, New World Hope”. This layout not only means a new look for Zelda Eternity but it also expresses a few things: The story between Ocarina of Time and The Wind Waker, The Wind Waker and its upcoming HD version coming to Wii U and a moving forward to new direction that we as a site intend to follow. These are the reasons why I gave this layout the name “Old World Blues, New World Hope”. At the moment the layout is not currently 100% so you’ll find errors on non-WordPress pages. We will have a fix for these soon. In the meantime, you can hit the jump for some more details about the new layout, direction and the Elias Eternity takeover.
