Nintendo has announced further details, as well as a firm date for the Japanese release of its upcoming dual GameBoy Color titles, which together compose The Legend of Zelda: Mystical Seed of Power. As previously reported, the game will actually be released as two separate chapters: Chapter of Gaia and Chapter of Earth. Nintendo has confirmed that the two games will be connected to one another, and that save data from one may be imported to the other, and used to unlock additional paths and options, as well as the game's deepest hidden secrets.
Contrary to earlier plans, Nintendo announced that the two chapters will be released at the same time. They are both scheduled to be available in Japan on February 27th, and will retail for 3800 yen (about $33). Although these titles are anticipated for a North American release later this year, no specific dates have yet been mentioned.
