There is a change in the ending if you beat Hero Mode, although it's very minor.

As for the difficulty... I found this game's difficulty to be perfectly fair to be honest. Zelda games have never been 'hard' since at least Zelda 2 on the NES, and this one is arguably a bit higher than that of the last few titles (especially the 3D ones and DS games). And hey, the combat's fun with the arcade style gameplay and the actually quite aggresive enemy AI.

P.S. As far as whether a difficult but annoying game or easy but fun game is better, I'd say there's no one answer to this. I mean, on the one hand, quite a few old NES era games were extremely hard, but were still enjoyable to play. And then you've got say, the Kirby and Wario series where the difficulty is mostly non existent (but where the games are still fun). I'd rather have a hard game like Zelda 2 than one with no difficulty at all, but I'd also simultaneously rather have something reasonable (like this game's normal mode) to something insanely hard to the point of being complete and utterly unfair (like say, SMW Lost Brain).

Since I took the week off work for the Thanksgiving holiday, I finished it today. It was a very fun game, and I thought the wall-merging ability was very well done. I'm slow, it took me 31 hours (although for several hours the game was paused while I played with the grandkids). I'm not ready to start the hero mode, I'd rather go back and replay the Ocarina of Time master quest first. (Ocarina is the game that's had the most play time on my 3DS, 43 hours 40 minutes.)

So, has anyone seen this?

Apparently, that weird stone tablet thing from the ending has normal Japanese text on it, meaning that someone who knows Japanese might be able to translate it and reveal more information about the game's storyline. Anyone up for the job?

Sadly yes. Of course the only thing that I saw is the mask in Link's house but then again I never played Major's Mask much so I maybe be missing other things.

Anyway after a break for a few days due to the holiday I finally got back into it. I just beat the Wind Temple (or whatever its called) and suffered my first defeat :(. Been trying to get all the lost octopus babies and so far I have 28 of them. And I dont know about anyone else but are you guys finding getting rupees a bit easy? I am about to hit 3000 rupees.

Well, I went into the Lost Woods and suffered my first defeat as well... :(

I didn't want to reset because I was so happy I'd figured out how the dungeon worked, but now I have to go back to Ravio and rent a bunch of things again... :|

On a sidenote: does anyone know how to get the pegasus boots?

They are in Karkariko village. The thief that stole the Zora's gem has them. What you do is turn into a painting by the building he is next too and pop out behind him to catch him. Once you do that he gives you the boots.

I just love love love the music in this game. For example, Hilda's theme is just perfect for her...it tells a story. Just by listening you can hear the despair, the hopelessness...but at the same time it's not just that. Hearing her theme you can tell that she used to be happy, but that has long been extinguished, and she stripped of her innocence in being forced to make the decisions she had to make...anyone else getting this?

This site must have some master gamers for everyone to be saying it was so easy and they never died once... I died quite a few times, I believe in the low teens. And i found the renting system to be perfect. I rented a lot, I bought periodically, and I enjoyed the heck out of this game. The 3 Hyrule dungeons were definitely slightly underwhelming and short, but that was more than made up for with the Lorule dungeons, which were charming, clever, and even tricky sometimes. I got stuck about 4 times through the various Lorule dungeons, 1 of those times being enough that I had to check a guide. I guess I'm just not as skilled as some of you, which i'm grateful for, as it made this experience perfect for me in almost every way. Great ending, though, although...

@LetsGoRetro The only way I can seriously see someone not dying and I did as many as you is if they all hit the dungeon with the stronger mail first! I'm a Zelda fan through and through and found the challenge just right as well. Not quite done yet but almost there!

I died only once in my first playthrough, but in hero mode I died numerous times, though the number of times descreased significantly after my first Lorule dungeon since I made sure to go through the one with the stronger mail first.

I just went to the Fortune's Choice in Lorule to waste probably all 8000 of my Rupees to get that piece of heart, and the very first chest I opened was the piece of heart. Then I got a red rupee and a monster horn. Don't even care. :)

Oh, and I love you.

Yeah, I went to that dungeon first because there are quite a few enemies in Lorule that did 8 hearts worth of damage without it :O

You get a piece of heart for playing the game? Grrrrgh. I hate games of chance...it was better in Ocarina of Time when you could cheat with the Lens of Truth. :/

Its not like its hard. I just went down the middle for all my picks and it took me like 4 or 5 trys. I actually made over 1000 doing it!

Anywho I'm over to the final dungeon and have everything I can possible have.

thats not true techy. I for example admitetly died one time in baby normal mode ( yeah for a hardcore gamer its a shame). But not because of the main content , just cause of the bonus dungeon about the 50 floors to gain the heartpiece. So going 50 floors first time unprepared in one run without strongest gear is probably prown to death.
But seriously all dungeons + lorule castle are ridiculously easy in baby normal mode. I can understand that zelda is no hardcore game cause it has to get those 7 year old boys as future new zelda customers hooked. But seriously nintendo does underestimate kids these days. Just look your nephew how quick he is. I dont think kids are that stupid that they need baby mode for zelda link between worlds. The balancing is not well made.

Anyway the only fun and challenging mode since ancient times is going 3 heart runs in either mode. But since i beat normal mode i tried hero mode with 3 heart run. And yes there u are prown to die even if you got some fairies cause enemys insta kill you. Like for example even if you got level 3 armor at final boss he still one hit kills you :D
But well thats part of the challenge i guess ....
So you guys just play one time for story in normal mode and will forever forget link between worlds or your looking for more meat in that game?
Since i now finished hero mode with 3 hearts there is not much to do. Only real challenge and sort of "endgame" is beat any form of shadowlinks with only 3 hearts ( yes its totally possible , needs good micro). Or try to clock in 999 seconds on that cucco frenzy minigame. Though i dont think i got the nerve to go straight to 999 minutes. Which means u have to watch over 15 minutes at tiny chicken and dodge em, gets boring after a while. But my cuccoo highscore is 340 seconds survival in endless mode. Idk if i should attempt 999. Maybe more chore and less fun or challenge ....

cheers folks

ps: one spoiler hint for newcomer guys , blue armor is NOT last armor, if you struggle for any reason u can even get level 3 armor, but very very late in the game. but pssst i dont spoil where its hidden :D
ps2: level 3 armor looks sexy :D

I always do 3 heart runs in my Zelda after beating them normally, so that concept isn't new to me at all. I only just beat Hero mode so I've been trying to get all the heart pieces, and thus haven't started a 3 heart run yet.

And as a side note the time I died in normal mode was to the

armored wallmaster boss. I just couldn't figure out how to dodge it the first time, but not long before I died I figured out you had to merge and I felt incredibly stupid for not thinking of that earlier...

Finally beat it just over an hour ago! Didn't expect that ending! Love the music and the pacing of the whole game. It being somewhat on the easy side didn't make me enjoy it any less.

So there is another armor set? I thought I found everything. The only thing I didn't do is the 50 floor battle yet. Someone want to give me a spoiler tag as to where that armor is or better yet a hint as to where?
