I'm buying this game at launch simply for the Majora's Mask 3D hype. Who knows, maybe they'll put in an after-credits teaser trailer!

A very good reason to play a Zelda game! o_O

@Tsuchinoko That actually surprises me on the sales of Zelda and just confirms my point even more so that it sells better in the west. Also your top 4 are all console games and not hand held! With sales like Monster hunter, Pokemon, and Animal Crossing all over 3 million or soon to be Zelda is trailing FAR behind! Yes those sales are not bad just not what I expected!

I know but what I said is that in recent years, mainly the past 10, the handheld Zelda games have all outsold the home console games. The top four are all console games yes, but those games are all over a decade old, with both Skyward Sword and Twilight Princess performing under the DS Zeldas.

And of course they'd sell better, but I said if you look at sales based on the percentage of stock sold, and not actual numbers then proportionally it sells quite well. Its unfair to look at numbers since the population of Japan is much smaller than America, or if you look at the PAL region.

And you can compare the sales to Monster Hunter and Pokemon all you want, but replace those with titles in the west such as GTA, or Halo, and the comparison still fits. Even Pokemon in the west still outsells Zelda by quite a bit.
So no, I don't agree that Zelda is "more popular in the west". Its not a beast like the biggest franchises (and again, it isn't in the west either), but they still sell respectable numbers, which is what I was trying to say.

I'm responding to this common saying that "Japan doesn't care about Zelda" or complaints that the games don't sell well, and that's just not true.

What I do agree with, is that sales for WWHD were abysmal, but there's quite a few reasons for that.

I wonder if he seeds of re-amalgamating the 3 Zelda timelines are being planted? A convergence of all the loose threads. It wouldn't surprise me if the Wii U game at least has references to all the past games, maybe with Link reliving key events of each one?

Nintendo is at least making more of an effort to put easter eggs in connecting the games.

It's a big thing to make a PS or xbox look like an NES. No one has ever customised a Nintendo console to make it look like an xbox or PS. There is a reason for this.

Okay, this sounds cool. Apparently this game has an unlockable hard mode:

Kind of like Hero Mode in Skyward Sword or Hard mode in Mario & Luigi Dream Team. Sounds pretty good if you ask me!

I'd rather the harder mode be available right from the get-go, but I suppose it's nice that it's in there at all, in any case.

Hard mode? Score! I love it. :)

@MrGawain I'm not one of those people that NEEDS to have a big timeline and everything to be converged, though the idea of a vague timeline or vague connections is really cool. Little references here and there are all I need, not some overly stated connections. Though I must admit the finding of the Hyrule Castle underwater and seeing all of those Ocarina of Time references in Wind Waker was really cool.

This game is going to be a smash hit for Nintendo and it's 3DS console, so much that I can see it moving quite a few 3DS units out the door upon release. Between this game and the Pokemon games that just came out, plus the inexpensive 2DS option, I can see Nintendo having one hell of a bankable Christmas this year.

I've been really anticipating this game quite a bit since it was announced and I really look forward to diving into it this holiday season, it's nice to have childhood style excitement about video games again. Thank you 3DS and Nintendo!

I have a question. I already have a 3DS(normal black version) but the ALBW 3DS XL bundle looks REALLY tempting. Should I buy it(if it's even real) for its price of $220 or just stick with my old one. And would I be able to trade my old one in for a lower price on the bundle? (Also my old one has something weird with the d-pad. It has this piece of plastic sticking out from the little crack to the left of the up direction.)

@triforcepower73 I say go for it! When I sold my 3ds back to Gamestop last year they bought it back with those bad scratches on it and I didn't say one word! Don't tell them when you trade it in. Its so worth the upgrade too!

I just watched the video of Aonuma from Nintendolife's article talking about A Link Between Worlds at Comic-Con...
Wow... The way Aonuma laughed and smiled when he was asked about Majora's Mask... That pretty much confirms its coming...and I really think its coming to Wii U AND 3DS.

I own a Wii U and 3DS. I do plan on getting a PS4 someday :D
