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!

I bet the Oracle games are coming next if this sells well. Makes sense for them to reuse the engine and assets, like Grezzo did with the Ocarina 3D->Majoras 3D games.

I hope they are, because I didn't finish either of them on the gbc.

I get that a lot of people are saying not to complain about the $60 price tag ... but honestly, it would make me so much happier if they could just let us share and play dungeons we make online with both friends and random people. That’s it. That alone would justify the $60. Hopefully they would add it, I’m not too certain though since they never mentioned any online connectivity but since it’s not coming out until late September I hope there will be a surprise in store.

@shadow-wolf i’m pretty sure that during the treehouse they mentioned that you can play friends’ dungeons, but they didn’t explicitly mention online play, so ¯(ツ)

It'll probably be like Super Mario Maker 2 and Smash Ultimate where you need NSO to share dungeons.

@Arbor I hope you’re right, cause from the Treehouse when they said “friends can play your dungeons” I thought they literally meant “if your friend is in the same room, your friend can take your controller and try to see if they can beat it faster”. Hopefully it’s more detailed than I thought they said.

@Grumblevolcano I hope you’re right. Adding the ability to share dungeons with other friends and random people over NSO would make the game so much more appealing. As of now it’s like if SMM was made but they didn’t have any way to share the stages besides if a friend who was in the same room wanted to try it out.

I just assumed you could. What's the point of this otherwise? I don't wanna play my own dungeon.

A really cool idea is to have some kind of special item available if you complete 3 other people's dungeons, or something like that. Cool way of making user-creations add to the main game itself.

I'd love to see a remake of the Oracle games using this engine. I agree they perfected both the exploring and adventure aspects.
They wouldn't be a bad option to pad out the release schedule in the future if Nintendo needs to.

I have a chronic lack of time, for everything.

Now playing: Okami HD, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
