Markomaro’s post has forced fans into doing their math – what is Nintendo thinking? A popular creator on Youtube – SwitchForce – has also shared his opinions regarding the same.

Analyzing Markomaro’s post, most fans – including SwitchForce – drew interesting conclusions. The most profound ideas revealed that remakes of ‘Oracle of Seasons’ and ‘Oracle of Ages’ may be upcoming. Another possible remake would be of ‘Four Swords Adventure’.

Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages perfectly fit with Markomaro’s post. Previously, Seasons featured Link in ‘red’ while Ages featured Link in ‘blue’. This may indicate that Nintendo is planning to package and release both versions, each featuring a slightly different story. So, it would be double-packed like Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl or other Pokemon title duos.
