Legend of Zelda Oracle of Seasons

 

A rumor is making it’s way around the internet that download codes for The Legend of Zelda; Oracle of Seasons will be given to those that preorder the upcoming A Link Between Worlds at Gamestop. Originating from Neogaf user Blitzwolf215, supposedly buyers will be given the code when they pick up their physical copy of ALBW. Gamestop is also reportedly giving a 30% trade-in bonus toward the game. A Link Between Worlds will be available for 3DS on November 22.

Seasons was a great game but odd choice (especially with the lack of Ages) if its true.

 

But why not "Link to the Past"? I think that would make more sense.



Not going to happen, its fake. Why give away a game that is selling so high on the eShop and the lack of Ages is very Weird?

Pavolink~ I lose if SSB 3DS sells less than 200k FW in japan. We all kno i already won Very Easily though :)

It's not a rumor...
I saw a promotional add in GameStop a few days ago stating that Seasons is indeed the preorder bonus for A Link Between Worlds...

Have a nice day...

Why not? Nintendo knows good deals get people to do things. Remember the great Animal crossing deal last month?

That's a nice bonus ($5.99 in value) but I'd much rather have an art book or soundtrack or something like that.

This would actually be really smart for Nintendo. Incentivize pre-orders with a free download of a game, which costs Nintendo nothing. Half the target market who would pre-order a Zelda game in the first place probably already either bought Seasons or decided against it due to still owning the GBC cartridge.

Give all of the others Seasons for free and they just might decide to buy Ages as well. And, as always, Nintendo continues to really push their digital business -- this gets new 3DS owners on the eShop acquiring digital content immediately, even if it is free. The install base is getting connected, seeing the storefront, looking at the digital merchandise. Smaaaaart.



Even a bluff would suit me just fine...

This very much.

Seems just way too random if you ask me. Then again, if this is a GameStop thing, does Nintendo have anything to do with it?
