@nintendobynature: I can be at least somewhat reasonable with special editions. I at least didn't fall for the BotW Master Edition. I thought an extra $30 just for a plastic Master Sword (cool as it looked) was pushing it a bit. $99.99 vs. $129.99 isn't as painful. XD

@Blitzenexx I'm in no way a collector but if they have a special edition for this with some cool bits I would definitely get it as well. I was 2nd in line at my local gamestop when the switch preorders opened and had a chance to get the BOTW master edition but I passed on it. Called up 20 minutes after leaving and they were already gone. Definitely won't make that mistake again

@Blitzenexx lol I never get special editions for anything but for some reason I'm feeling a little wild this go round, i may get it if it's announced

Reversible cover would be cool too like in Samus returns

@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.

Yeah I don’t know either.

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.

But.... You can take screenshots of that too...

Like, no joke, you can go to any game with a camera mode, take a screenshot of that, and print it. Right now- no little toy printer required.

@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.
