Trivia

1001 Video Games

The Game Boy Color version of The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.

Dungeons

The first dungeon in Oracle of Seasons is based on the first dungeon (simply called Level 1, or the "Eagle") in the first Legend of Zelda. They also share the same boss, a fire-breathing dragon called Aquamentus.

GBA content

Although it does say that its a Game Boy Color game, there are areas of the game that can only be entered if you are playing on a Game Boy Advance. The only confirmed area in Seasons that I can find are the houses with two doors in them. On the GBC only door can be entered, but on the GBA you can enter the second door and find hidden shops.
