|The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons (Wessel)|
December 1, 2001
The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons is a multi-ending chapter book based on the video game of the same name. It is a companion to the Oracle of Ages book by Craig Wessel book. Despite some small differences in the story, it generally follows the plot of the video game accurately. In the center of the book are eight full-color pages of official game artwork.
The book is fairly short and skims over many events in the game, covering only four dungeons out of eight and the final battle against General Onox. The skipped dungeons are mentioned, but not described in great detail. The book also describes the order for the Trading Quest.
Like in the Oracle of Seasons manga by Akira Himekawa, Oracle of Seasons is shown to be the first game chronologically in Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages, followed by Oracle of Ages. Although it is based on a canon game, the book is generally regarded as non-canon.
Although based on the same adventure, the plotlines of the game and the book differ slightly.
- Link speaks quite frequently, like in the Oracle of Seasons manga by Akira Himekawa.
- Depending on the reader's choice, the Sword & Shield Maze may become the seventh dungeon, while Explorer's Crypt may become the eighth.
- Link names Bipin and Blossom's son "Bipsom" if the reader chooses to enter their home in the story.
- In the book, Ricky is the animal companion which Link meets.
