Yay! I managed to translate something correctly! :D
Good news though. I'll probably download one if we get them, which I'm pretty sure we will.

Yes! I have them but the gba sp is front lit not back lit. These will look amazing on the 3dsxl as links awakening dx did. It's a pain having to use passwords to transfer data from one to the other but by pressing the home button I can just use the 3ds memo notebook..... I can not wait to play these again. Yeah they are a bit easy but great fun.

Awesome. Never actually completed ages, probably because I was young when it first came out. Hope they come out over here.

Would love to play these. After getting Hyrule Historia I want to play as many Zelda games as I can.

Excellent! I'm looking forward to knowing when they will get released on out eShop.
I already have by Seasons cartridge, so I may just get Ages - although after comparing the vivid colours on the 3DS to the washed out ones on my Game Boy Colour, I might be tempted to get both. I would certainly if there was some kind of promotional incentive for getting both.

I bought this, then sold it as I had a GBA, just for my mate, playing Pokemon Yellow on his GBA, to tell me that GB games work on GBA's, fffffffff to say the least... Still, REALLY happy, apart from WW and Link's Awakening (if 4 swords on the DS counts haha) these are the only games I haven't played. If they're sold separately, I'm buying both, no doubt!

This is excellent news. I missed them first time around due to not being a Zelda fan when they were first released, looking forward to playing them both!

Never played the originals, will get the chance to play them now, though. Can't comment on whether or not they are great games, but they are Zelda titles, so I would expect that they are just fine. :D

As a huge fan of the top down titles you guys that have not played them are in for a treat. Lots of side quests, dungeons, mounts that give epona a run for her money, Gorons , Zoras , pirates, a love story that spans over a hundred years, exclusive items and great music.

The only things I'm looking forward to is Monster Hunter 4 and maybe Oracle of Agea/Seasons.

EDIT: Sorry, there are a couple of spoiler below.

About time too!!! I have waited ages (no pun intended!) for them to produce them on another port. I have OoA and have played it over and over, but my cousin OoS to I've played it less but still all the way through. Imho, apart from maybe OoT, they the LoZ games, easily my favourites. They completely blow the 2 DS games out of the water, on gameplay, length, and replay. There's just so much to love; the mounts (A FLYING BEAR!), time travel, underwater play, season changing, different worlds (ish...), and some of the best boss fights in the series.

Hopefully they'll include an easy-to-use inter-game thing so that I can finally fight Twinrova and Ganon.

Nintendo, I've been playing Guild Wars 2 a lot since August and have barely touched my DS/3DS/Wii, thank you for giving me a reason to go back!

Phew...I'm a bit hyper now...

I played and completed Seasons never had Ages. Due to the guide I had, it showed a code in the back (intentional or not) that allowed you to play the second run through on Seasons, that you would normally have to get by completing Ages, though sadly, I didn't get the final code for Seasons, just the code for Ages. This was back before I was on the internet so I couldn't scower my way through the web in search of the codes.

I was thinking more of a discount like they will have in Japan.
