@DTMOF84 Shame, I was hoping to get the special edition for that price. I was hoping for €30/40 seeing how it's such a short game.

Got 2 Amiibo and 2 Dreamer editions preordered! The European edition is so much better though definitely a bit jealous but all good. Can't wait to play this!

Yeah I couldn't remember how long it was. Howlongtobeat.com says 15 hours.

@mjtaylor76 I ordered it all on Amazon US but seems to be sold out already. I'm sure you can find one somewhere else but you better be quick!!

@redd214 I'm in the UK. I'm sure it will be up over here soon. Hopefully!

I don't do special editions personally, I'm just so stoked for this game. I know people have been saying this since it was announced, but I REALLY hope they take this artstyle and engine to do remasters of the Oracle games as well!

Yeah, I might sit on this one and pick up a remastered Oracle of Ages if it comes out in the future. That's by far my favorite 2D Zelda. I'm really not big on 2D Zelda combat, so Ages' puzzle focus is a big plus for me.

Nothing against Link's Awakening, but it definitely hasn't aged as well as the Oracle games gameplay wise.

@iKhan I think Link's Awakening has the best atmosphere and charm, but I agree that Ages has some really inventive and difficult puzzle sequences! I'd be interested to see what kind of interesting connection gimmicks they could come up with to improve the byzantine password system too.

Definitely would not mind more remakes of the older 2D sprite-based games. I think this art style sorta fits the whimsy of many of them.

I'd like to see both Oracle games eventually remade as well. I slightly prefer Link's Awakening over them, but they're also more than worth playing. Ages is my favorite of the two.

Same. Oracle of Ages/Seasons had one of the craziest password systems that I've ever used.

At least until I played both GBA Golden Sun games on the Wii U VC.

Somehow I've started to love the art style for this game. Originally I hated it. Not sure how an opinion just changes like that.
Damn inconsistent brain.

Golden Sun's password system is why I'm glad they put in a link cable port on the Game Boy Player.

I'd also be down for some remakes of the Oracle games in this style.

@BougieBeetle I get that people really love the atmosphere and charm of Link's Awakening, but I feel that the Oracle games really fleshed out the exploration and collectibles. The animal partners, the Gasha seeds, and then a pretty expansive world full of different races, it really felt like a 3D game translated back into 2D (which they kind of were since they came out after OoT). I also feel like people sleep on the story in Ages, there are some really great moments like stumbling upon Symmetry City in ruins.

@DarthNocturnal To be fair, I didn't HAVE to use the gold password, but I also wanted to import pretty much everything. I spent two hours of my life retyping and correcting that monstrosity. XD

I love the artstyle, and really hope they use it someday for a totally new topdown Zelda (with new overworld). Very strange though that this doesn't have the fluid walking motion from, lets say, Albw. The walking is more like the original Links awakening, according to this site. But I guess it won't bother me to much!
