@Dezzy: It is understandable to pay full price for a 4 year old game that's still as good as new.

But a 26 years old 15-hour Zelda game shouldn't cost as much as a brandnew 200-hour BotW.

I buy Link's Awakening for 40 max, but for 60 it needs to have at least the Switch Printer included (sequel to the Game Boy Printer), plus the original and DX versions. And online multiplayer.

You can kind of already take pictures of your game and print them without fancy Nintendo branded accessories.

I don't mean screenshots. I mean actual in-game photographs you can collect at several spots in Link's Awakening DX and then print them out with the Game Boy Printer.

@Delibheel That's absolutely no compromise! I'd miss my tiny sheets of paper and the big black&white pixels.

Ah yes, I forgot about the photographs! Most of them are pretty entertaining.

I think this one is my favorite:

Yeah pricing will be interesting to see. I’m expecting $50, but if they add a few new features I could see them try to justify $60. While $40 is the sweet spot and in line with several classic games Sony remade for the PS4 like Shadow of the Colossus and Ratchet and Clank, knowing Nintendo they’re probably not going to settle for less than $50. Considering the scale and the fact that the game scale wise and gameplay wise doesn’t seem too far off from the Game Boy original, $40 would be much more palatable.

This is some contrived logic. Donkey Kong is probably under 15 hours. And the fact that a game is originally 26 years old is largely meaningless. Most of the downsides that come from its age will be fixed in this new version, so its original age doesn't really mean anything. All that means something is the age of this incarnation, that's what you're paying for....which is brand new.

Almost no Nintendo games should cost the same as BotW if we're going by this logic. Yet they do. Nintendo just averages out the price of their games so that some are much more profitable (per copy sold).

That said, I do think they'll add some new content to justify the likely $60 price tag.

I strongly suspect that we'll see a lot of new content in this remake of Links Awakening.

Purely from a marketing perspective they'll need to have something to catch attention and stoke the hype fires closer to launch. Otherwise the game will just be smoothered out of the conversation when it launches at the end of the year.

From a gameplay perspective there are clearly a lot of things that could be added that might all mesh in quite well with both the dream like storyline and the toy-like visuals. There could be extra dungeons, hard modes, extra characters, hints/homages to other Zelda/Nintendo games. They can really do as much as they like and at the moment they don't need to unveil any of it.

The biggest thing that I'd expect them to add (which has been speculated upon by some of the coverage) is a Four Swords esq multiplayer.

Considering all we know is from a barebones trailer it seems a bit too early to complain about the game's pricing.

One thing I'm curious about is if they are going to included fmv sequences in the game like at the start of the trailer. I'm sure they could make the game and video art styles to highlight the island is a dream world.

I definitely would've preferred if they had used graphics along the line of the anime-style opening, but I'm sure it will grow on me and I already know I'll enjoy playing through this gem again on the Switch.

Like others, I'm also hoping that this will open the way for more 2D Zelda remakes/remasters, even though I think, for example, the Minish Cap looks better than this (but that's just how I see it). ^^'

And seeing as this was apparently a point of discussion, I'd love to see the Oracles games remade, especially bundled together.

EDIT: I also just have to say that I love how Nintendo chose to remake this game, since afaik it's definitely not one of the most well known Zelda games, but I do know it's one of my favourites.

I'm one of the few who think that the art direction of the remake is atrocious.
I'd love something more inspired, more genuine but not that kind of "low budget indies touch".
I feel almost sad to see what treatment Nintendo reserved to Link's awakening.
A fantastic game like this one deserve a much more inspired remake than that kind of plastic/basic textures visual.
And that toyish flute they used for the theme, what a pain...

I think you might be underestimating Awakening's popularity, whilst not the biggest in the Zelda series it did fly the flag for the GB and GBC selling over 6M copies between the two versions. For context that's more than Wind Waker or A Link To The Past.

Of course you're welcome to your opinion but you can't really call it low budget indie looking.

@PCkid
But it looked so CUTE.
Think about younger players who never knew Zelda games.
That Toy looking Link looked so interesting to play.

I definitely didn't expect that! Kudos to Link's Awakening. ^^

Ive said it before but I don't mind the art style. Seeing an anime style like in the opening scene wouldve been cool but hey, this new style is growing on me. I think Nintendo knows it can take risks with the LoZ series since there's casual zelda fans and die hard zelda fans that'll no doubt purchase it ( not all, but alot of people will buy this). If they wouldve come out with a new IP in the same art style, it would be a real risk for them that people may not bite on. But like i said, it's zelda and zelda sells well. In all honesty a lot of people buy zelda for the gameplay or story. Not so much the art style but i could be entirely wrong. The only two zelda games that blew me away graphically were ocarina of time( because of how ground breaking it looked for the time) and breath of the wild. So either way I'll be picking this up even with me not being absolutely in love with the art style. All because I love zelda games and how they play.

@PCkid How's the video you've shown in your eyes so similar to that in this remake? I really don't see it. I agree with you that Oceanhorn looks cheap and plastic though. Not that it bothers me, looks like fun.
