You can create dungeons (kind of) by using tiles from existing dungeons i believe. I still don't really understand how that would work though, as surly you are just doing the same puzzles in a different order. I think it probably works better than i imagine it to.


From watching it on Treehouse, it’s more of a puzzle mode than a dungeon maker mode, where you have to make the dungeon tiles “work” under set criteria. I’m not sure I’m explaining that in the best way but if you see it being played it makes sense.

I did watch that footage. They seemed to put tiles down to fit a template, then it was played through by the BOTW creator. The meat of the content seemed to be around clearing the dungeon in a time quicker than one of the other presenters. It did not appear (to me) that the placement of tiles was a particular puzzle, more just fulfilling requirements to make the dungeon structure work. Maybe i failed to grasp the core concept though.

There is a big list of changes here

The "new content" ones I'd note are:

- Chamber Dungeons, in place of the camera shop from DX. Create your own dungeons with preexisting rooms from the game to match set criteria, get timed on their completion, earn rewards, and use amiibo to alter how they play (for example the Link's Awakening Link amiibo adds Dark Link who will pursue you throughout chamber dungeons)
- Bottles are new items in the game (for catching fairies)
- More heart containers/pieces to collect (20 max hearts up from 14)
- Remade mini-games, specifically the Trendy Game is now physics-based with a different layout, and the Fishing Hole is expanded
- The map screen is improved, can have pins added and lets you view past conversations

The dungeon maker thing looks pretty half arsed from what I've seen of it.

I'm really glad I've never played this before. I'm not excited perhaps, but I'm keen.

It's a great game, I mean the original. I'm not getting this at launch, but it might be my Christmas game.

After saying this I have now pre-ordered it :slol:

Got it for nothing though using a combo of reward points and acrrued cashbank monies :datass:

Have this preordered, but may cancel because £50 for a gameboy remake is a bit silly. I want some proper games, not handheld titles masquerading as full home system games.

Because otherwise he can't be as edgy when he cancels it and tells us all that remakes are silly. Just remember to ignore the Shenmue avatar.

Its a handheld remake and had framerate issues which is laughable. Nintendo need a proper home console.

You don’t make the line between ‘joking’ and ‘idiocy’ thick enough my friend.

I gave you the benefit of the doubt last time I saw this. This time, your communication needs to improve sharpish, before somebody takes your post seriously and pokes it full of holes.

Assuming you have Nintendo online, don't mind buying it digitally and want another game as well you can actually get it for just under £36 (technically it actually makes it £33.60 if you only count the credit you spend on the voucher).
