I don't remember any standout ideas for what the amiibo could do, but I think I've found one. It's a bit tricky since the Link amiibos are bow and horse themed, but I want an amiibo that changes the look of Link's remote bomb to a physical one with a lit fuse. Instead of exploding on command it would have a set timer like the old bombs, but still roll around with the physics and create a lot of timing shenanigans for the player. With the rustic crafted bomb appearance in Twilight Princess and a smaller, fiery explosion effect, I think this could be a really neat extra thing in the vein of Wolf Link's amiibo.

Has anyone seen any breath of the wild footage on wiiu recently? I plan on buying it on the wiiu but would like to know if the frame rate has improved, otherwise i will cancel my pre order and wait until i'm ready to buy a switch.

I will keep my wiiu preorder. It's looking like it'll be the rarer version, and I already own a wiiu... The switch and its games are stupidly expensive here, so I don't think I'll be upgrading any time soon.

@George4518 We haven't seen the Wii U version since the E3 build. However, Nintendo said that the only differences are resolution (900p on Switch TV mode and 720p on the Wii U) and the Switch version has apparently higher quality sounds whatever that means. Other than that, the differences are that the Wii U version requires a 3GB install, no special editions available for Wii U, yada yada..

@Octane Actually the last time we saw the Wii U version running was at the VGA2016

@Haru17 right? I can't wait to play Zelda on the switch come march 3rd.

You can put loads of metal on your horse for lighting to strike, but you have to buy the horse armour DLC.

This game is going to make twilight princess look like a game boy game.

@erv Actually I don't think Breath of the Wild will have much bearing on Twilight Princess, seeing as it's seemingly adopting a completely different structure and setting itself up not to compete at all when it comes to dungeons. The only connection I can see there is the story (not likely to top it) and the mechanical complexity, Breath hopefully being the most complex Zelda and the one with the greatest range of interaction with the world with Twilight Princess coming in at second.

I think The Wind Waker — the last open world Zelda — has a much better chance of being directly improved upon by Breath of the Wild. Especially since Breath of the Wild seemingly has a lot of cutscenes compared to Wind Waker's few, a more dense and varied terrestrial world compared to Wind Waker's empty and homogenous ocean, and the paraglider and horse, more interesting methods of traversal which allow for melee and ranged combat options that The Wind Waker's boat did not.

@renaryuugufan92 Yeah, but that was the E3 build, it was an old demo. So while the Wii U games looked a bit dated in some areas, just keep in mind that we still have yet to see what has changed in the 8-9 months since E3.

@Meowpheel I'm considering a similar plan, just replace "so I don't think I'll be upgrading any time soon" with "so I'll wait for my birthday". I'll still keep my preorder just in case I win the giveaway (preordering Switch from GAME gives you the chance of winning it) or change my mind.

I won't get the Switch day one, but I hope to get it in March when I travel, so I'll just wait to play Zelda on Switch. I have that nice special edition preordered!

Anyone else think the timing of this season pass announcement is way to gently nudge Wii U owners to get this game on switch. It's one thing to play it on Wii U in March but to then have to hang on to your dead console till the end of the year to play more DLC is unappealing. If your going to get the DLC you may as well get it on switch.

I wasn't planning on getting a switch at launch but I was thinking I would probably get one by the time Super Mario Odyssey comes out and just play Zelda on Wii U, now if I want the good DLC in december I will have to play it on my Wii U or rebuy the game on switch and get the DLC there.

So do you think people just throw their old consoles to the trash can after a new one gets released? Most gamers hold on to their "dead" consoles for far longer than a year.

It would be an incentive to get the switch version if the dlc was only available for that.

For me, it simply means I can comfortably enjoy the full game without spending 600+ dollars on a new console and a new game+dlc.

No but I think plenty of people would like to store it away if its not being used for anything. Plenty of other people sell things when they are done with them. I am sure there are some who toss it in the garbage...thanks mom

I just think the strategy of something like Mario Kart 8 was so much better received. DLC announced after the game was out for awhile and made it fresh again. I just wonder why for the first time ever they announce a season pass before a game launches.

@Meowpheel duh, I threw the SNES I've had sitting under my TV for 17+ years away when I got a GameCube (screw the N64) as well

What a beautiful signature.

@blaisedinsd I am getting Zelda on Wii U, if I move on to the Switch before the DLC comes out, I will just buy Zelda for Switch. lol

People keep saying the Xbox One doesn't have Backwards Compatibility.
I don't think they know what Backwards Compatibility means...

@DefHalan Yeah I am getting it on Wii U as well but I either am not going to buy the DLC or keep my Wii U around. I will wait to see if its enticing when its actually out as all I really care about possibly is the new story new dungeon. I actually still play my Wii U fairly often and have a back catalog to play still but it is not played as much since we got a PS4 this past holiday. It might stick around at least as an off TV device and remote control maybe.
