Bloody hell sorry mate :(

That’s possibly my error in communication: I was referring to GF not you. Sorry Danmon (X Machina).

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).

Nice one H, just bought 3 for £71 so that will pay for the 2 game voucher thingies off the eShop which is Zelda and Luigi's Mansion 3 sorted :msgreen:

Hehe, no worries, I knew that but was just messing. That's not my name though.

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.


Agreed, it’s not like Nintendo bounced back from a huge failure in the Wii U to huge success with a hybrid console. They need a home console only.

But its all false success. They have lost a whole market with there not being a true handheld successor.

There is a big list of changes here



One of the skulls in the Yarna Desert has been moved slightly upward


:x

The only reason I was looking forward to this was seeing the Yarna Desert skulls in the exact same place as they were in 1993.

Literally unplayable.

Can you still half inch things from the shop and have your name change to thief for the rest of the game?

Mm, I'm sure when their shareholders look at the comprehensive business plan and amount of profits being made they think, 'strawberry float these numbers, this is false success'.

When I dock my Switch at home to continue playing on a bigger screen the latest big Nintendo games that somehow, absurdly, they've managed to fit onto a handheld, I too think that Nintendo's success is a lie.

Though there are other features; the game play of the main game is basically the same? - I haven't played the original so a hd re-release suits me better than a remake.

Not sure of the graphic design - it looks charming but that shiny finish makes the characters and the shrubs look like toys (but again I haven't played the original game so don't know how well this look suits the tone of the game). But I preferred the look of the original Wind Waker rather than the improved HD re-release, so.....

Definitely interested though.

Yes, it's very much a 1:1 remake of the original. I think some of the mini games have been reworked and there are lots of QOL improvements but it's the same game as its' core.

Is this game lengthy as I've heard folks said the orginal is pretty short.
Long as it's about 15-20 hours I'm fine with that.
