@UnknownReader I'm expecting it to be around £40/45 mark, not sure what that is in dollars but it's below average Nintendo prices here. I'll probably buy it anyway, it's a good game to just relax and have fun

@ThanosReXXX People will always consider Wii Sports/Resort as a better game than this, millions of people have played Wii Sports and nostalgia is a very strong thing. But with that said Go Vacation will be new for many people when it releases on Switch because a lot of the Wii hype had died down for those people. Hopefully more people will get to enjoy it because it won't have as much competition.


On a separate note, I played the original and it's still pretty good! Some of the motion controls feel really pointless and would be better with buttons but it's still fun. The tubing is still as entertaining as remember it being in the snow resort, still not sure how my character survives the long falls onto solid rocks but oh well

@Kimyonaakuma if I don't have to pay online sub for couch co-op and play with my lil girl, probably will not be relaxing for me, lol! She is pretty competitive and sometime a sore loser ( if I win her too many time )

@Kimyonaakuma True, that's why I said what I said in my comment: people are looking at Sports Resort through their rosy-tinted glasses, and instead of judging Go Vacation honestly, they''re already dismissing it as inferior from the very first glance they've taken at it. But that's just how it goes with all things internet, I guess...

Here's a small tip/secret to try in the Wii version of the game: if you have a nunchuk connected, and you keep the remote in the upright position and perfectly still (or at least still enough), you can actually steer with the nunchuck's analog stick instead of motion controls, on some of the vehicles. Haven't tried them all, but I know it works.

Here's hoping they add this option as a standard to the Switch version...

@UnknownReader @Kimyonaakuma @Haru17 Just figured out myself when I was on the Nintendo Website that when just browsing the games it shows Go Vacation is $49.99 (first game shown at https://www.nintendo.com/games/game-guide/?pv=true#filter/swi...) but strangely when you click on the game it does not show the price. Either way I think it's safe to say that's the price, as it was my initial guess.

Even if it was full price, I would be buying it. I just hope so much they make it be a physical game, for all the good reasons, but mostly for the cheaper price with Best Buy's GCU making it 20% off.

@BezBot oh Noooooo.... $50 for it. Guess I'll wait for christmas sales (cross fingers Nintendo will have sales During Season Holiday!)

Yeah, I'm not going to spend $50 on this game when I can get Horizon and its expansion for the same price and plenty of other games on my backlog like Shadow of War, Wolfenstein II, or two copies of A Way Out for like $30 on sale.

I mean I get the new release vs months old game pricing dynamic, but Switch remasters are just shameless. Moreover, these games are all 4+ years old (older in this case) and they're obviously less complex in both gameplay and art.

Ugh, I'll look out for a sale, but honestly the Switch $60 old game precedent Nintendo is setting is really damn pathetic.

Don't hate me because I'm bnahabulous.

@Haru17
I would rather spend $ 50 for an HD Remake from Wii game that can be played together with kids than spend under $ 50 for rated M games you mentioned above.
I don't even care with the price, as long still reasonable.

@Anti-Matter I don't see how rating plays into this other than trying to dismiss the development / pricing gulf between Switch and Playstation/third party AAAs out of hand.

I like to base it on how much effort the developers & publishers puts in, how new the idea of the games is/are. and if they have retail/physical ( refused to pay high (edit to add or same price as retail) for digital content )

Like I will pay full price for God of war, (upcoming) Ghost of Tsushima, but I will most likely not willing for Captain Toad Switch.

Very professional, great-looking openworld sports games in this series, even though they're presented in a very casual way.
I too wonder how the controls of many sports events transfered to Switch. The Wiimote and Balance Board were essential.
Getting this game depends on how much thought they put into the new Switch controls, and if they can actually keep up with the Wii version.

@SKTTR
Or....
What if Switch can accept Bluetooth signal from Wiimotes & Wii Balance board by new updates ?

@Haru17 I don't think we can qualify Go Vacation as a AAA third party title...

This actually looks pretty cool & relaxing. Whether or not I get it depends on what else is out around the time (and seeing how it's going to be a packed summer...).

Currently Playing:
Switch - NSMBU Deluxe
PS4 - Moss

I'll be passing on this. I kinda stopped caring as much about the Wii Sports-esque games years ago, and chances are Nintendo will overprice it like they have been with pretty much all of their ports.

Yeah just saw price on Amazon, gonna be a pass for me at $50. May consider it on sale but certainly doesn't seem worth it for what they're charging imo.

Then why are they charging nearly full price? That's my whole point.

@Haru17 Beats me. Ask Nintendo and Bandai Namco, who's the publisher of this game. Having said that, and although we obviously can't compare this relatively small-scoped game to multi-million dollar efforts like Horizon or anything similar, this game is definitely not bad, especially if you have kids or family to play with. Its strength lies in the multiplayer and in its diversity.

People tend to compare this to Wii Sports Resorts, but that only had a fraction of the number of games that this game has (Sports Resort has 15 in total, as opposed to more than 50 in Go Vacation), and contrary to Sports Resorts, it has an interconnected hub of islands, that you can visit and explore, and free roam. For all intents and purposes, it does have that vacation "feel", it's not just a game with a menu and a list of selectable mini games.

But if you don't have kids, or younger family members to play with, then it'll probably be a hard sell, because the single player is not nearly as entertaining as the multiplayer, because by yourself, you can only meet completely un-interactive NPC's, so that's definitely the inferior experience.

Then again: this coming to the Switch could be just the ticket, seeing as it is a two-player console right out of the box, so all you'd need is one other person and you're a go.

But I can understand that the simple, cutesy graphics aren't for everyone, and it is true that there are a number of mini games in there that aren't as good as the others, but all in all, my own experience with the original version of this game has been largely positive.

I don't know if the Switch version is going to be a 1:1 version graphics and content-wise, so I guess I'll have to wait and see when it gets a preview/review, and then I can personally assess if this is still worth the price or not.

And as for that comparison: there are also multiple first party titles that are also not as big as other, third party triple A titles, and yet, those are also still priced in a similar fashion. There will probably also be people who have a problem with that, so in some respects, Nintendo can never win. Damned if they do, damned if they don't...

I loved the openworld sandbox adventure gameplay of its We Ski / Family Ski predecessors.
If those are anything to go by Go Vacation will be great. For me it's worth it for the Snow Resort alone, which is just 1/4 of the game.

However, I heard that some of the 50 games in the Wii version were small, forgettable little distractions. I hope they remake the worst ones and add to the small ones, so that they're on par with the great ones in this package.

Is Nintendo going to publish it again, or is it Bandai Namco this time?
