The Oracle Houses are locations in The Minish Cap.
Features and Overview
After completing the Fortress of Winds, Link can fuse a Red Kinstone with Farore, one of the three Oracles at Happy Hearth Inn who is looking for a house to move into. Afterwards, Gorman will be renting a home in Hyrule Town, at which point Link can talk to one of the three Oracles so that she may move in to the new house. By speaking to the Oracle in the house, Link will be able to obtain one of the Charms.
To obtain the next house, Link must then fuse a Red Kinstone with Bremor, the carpenter by the Post Office. Mutoh then becomes motivated to build a second house for Gorman. The young hero can talk to one of the two remaining Oracles to obtain a second Charm once the house is completed.
A third house never becomes available for the remaining Oracle. Thus, its charm cannot be obtained. In the European version of the game, Gorman considers building a third house south of the Royal Hyrule Library, but he never does. This comment was replaced in the American version, released two months later.
Some fans believe the missing third Oracle House is a deliberate reference to the unreleased third title of Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages. However, it may have simply been a development oversight.
