If it reviews well, I'll probably end up getting this a year or so later. There's just too much stuff coming out in the next few months.

Cant wait. It looks and plays amazing from what I've seen. Day one purchase.

@Dezzy it's reviewed really well from what I've seen. But i hear you with having to wait. There's not enough time to fit everything. This however is on my day 1 list though

@NintendoByNature

The review embargo for western media is monday. We don't have reviews yet, except for Japan, which I never know how to interpret given fairly obvious biases towards certain genres (e.g FF13 getting 39/40 in famitsu, and I was one of the people who really liked that game, but that's an insane score)

@BruceCM Thanks for the links.

Wasn't going to buy this Day 1 until I read Damo's review, so now I'm in. But I've also trained myself not to buy things full MSRP and it's hard to find a deal on this anywhere. Will keep looking at Amazon - I have Prime - and they recently dropped another game $10 day after it released. I do have 933 gold coins, will consider digital as well. Or I'll wait until my library gets it in, or Black Friday when it will be $30, Platinum Games games always go on sale rather quickly. Though as a Switch exclusive I suppose this may take awhile. I'd rather not wait, but $60 ain't happening.

So now the reviews are here. 88 on Metacritic. Not bad!

I won't have much time to play it on Friday as we're having guests over the weekend, but will try it as much as possible that day.

@NintendoByNature Thanks. I know a lot of people would scoff over $10 but it's just how my brain is wired.

And judging by the photo in this tweet it's prolly legit. Guess I'll take a ride over.

@rjejr yep I saw that photo. Gotta be true since every other game is also discounted right away.

@BruceCM I think it reminds me a lot of XC2 and Torna, so much so that I'm already calling them driver and blade, but I've never ever seen not even one article or comment make that same connection. Just my kids. Which seems strange as it looks so similar to me. Though 1 is obviously a JRPG and 1 an action game, but still surprised nobody has mentioned it yet if only to say "yes these games look alike but they don't play the same at all".

And like XC2 and Torna I think I'm just going to watch my kids play co-op b/c Damo described all of the buttons being used and it sounded even crazier than XC2 and Torna which was boggling my mind how much the Switch can pull off on screen at once. (Though not nearly as much craziness as a Necromancer, Monk and Wizard have on screen at once in Diablo 3, b/c every 20 minutes or so I'm commenting how it's unbelievable the Switch doesn't freeze, lag or crash, like the Wii U always did in those Lego games.)

@NintendoByNature Yeah, I finally caught up to all the chatter about every Switch game being $10 cheaper at Walmart. I used to be on CAG all the time years ago and would know this stuff, now I'm lazy and just ask when I have a question.

I'm deeply unsurprised it got great reviews, it just does more to confirm what I already assumed. Buying it probably within a week or so of release, which is rare for me nowadays.

Hmm, I didn't think it looked that similar, @rjejr .... Still, as long as you like it!

Any consistent reports on length of the game? I’m afraid to start this while I’m only 5 hours into FE but it looks really good.

@Ryu_Niiyama I have been hearing around 15-20 hours total, with doing barebones side content. But if you do all side content it can balloon slightly to 25-40? It's a bit inconsistent, but 15-20 hours seems the right amount for casual run.

Seems the main hours will come from redoing stages with higher difficulty or wanting higher scores.

@darkfenrir ok yeah I’m getting this. I tend to blow through a Platinum game and then go back later during a game lull to up my score. Thank you.

Hope this isn't another case of a new Platinum game being every critic's darling and then selling like absolute garbage..

Ordered the other day myself. I was always gonna get the game day one just because I thought it looked brilliant from the start.

What a beautiful signature.

Hopefully it'll sell well! I already preloaded it myself the moment it's up on the eshop.
