@Link-Hero If you try to buy the physical on Amazon UK, there is an exclusive Hat:

Which is explained as "The Amazon Exclusive Includes Astronomer’s Hat exclusive DLC"
So to me seems like there will be DLC or micro-transactions for clothing at least

@Octane That’s how I’m gonna be playing this game. I am really excited to see what this game is about. I haven’t seen too much from trailers in case theirs spoilers. I’m also rewatching all the Harry Potter films, even though they have nothing to do with the game but it’s Christmas and I consider them Christmas movies.

@WoomyNNYes : Didn't they announce paid DLC for Splatoon 3 though?

@WoomyNNYes : I just want the damn thing on a cart (when it surfaces). I'm hoping that Splatoon 3 also gets an all-in-one cart like the Splatoon 2 release in Japan. At least this time, Splatoon 3 has only one build internationally (that I know of), which means that such a release would be import-friendly.

@Sisilly_G Ohhhh, I hope that's the case! It's a crime that the Splatoon 2 complete edition cart only had Japanese language on it.

edit: If they'd offered that Splatoon 2 complete edition with english, imagine how many units they'd sell to people who've already own Splatoon 2. They'd bee selling their game twice to people, and we'd eat it up! XD And they didn't even need new content.

@WoomyNNYes : Right? I also bought the Breath of the Wild DLC cart even though I had purchased the DLC (which is a rarity). Better yet, it has the latest version on the cart too, making it the definitive way to own the game. It's a tragedy that these sorts of releases are the extreme exception, rather than the norm.

@Sisilly_G @Bunkerneath
Content like that is what makes me suspicious of their claims. To me, that sounds like they have the option to easily include microtransactions if they so desired. It subtly hints that they are going to release them. Maybe not at launch, but sometime afterward when the game sells well enough. It's happened before like with Crash Team Racing.

As a Switch physical collector, I now have another reason to dunk on this release.

The box art has been updated and now includes a required download banner.

@Magician
Called it. Knew it was going to be that or a cloud version. But seriously, what's up with continuing to do download-only cases? It's such a waste of plastic no matter how you look at it. Just go onto the console's online store and buy it there instead! We're also currently in an environmental and bodily health crisis due to said plastic for flipping sake!

Some preview from people that got to play the Beta build for 2 hours!

There are limitations but it looks promising for a beta build!

Seems as though retailers have the Switch version locked in for July 25th.

Meanwhile, aggregate scores are looking really good.

Now we continue waiting for the news of the caveats of how this comes to the switch: cloud version, or running natively with ridiculously short draw distance & distracting pop-in. Unless there's new hardware, which seems unlikely. Forgive me for beating a dead horse with any of that. HL is the only game other than Tears of the Kingdom that I'm looking forward to this year.

Coincidentally, HL and Tears of the Kingdom are also at the top of the list for games most likely to put the mythical 64GB game cards to use.

@WoomyNNYes I think they said it's native because one dev said they were really happy with how it's turning out.

Every news I hear about the Switch version confirms to me more and more that it will have a bunch of problems. They're clearly having development issues and don't want the public to see how it plays and looks. I mean, what reason there is in why they have shown literally nothing about the Switch version?

Either way, back on topic. Despite some of my suspicions about the developer's claims on DLC and microtransactions, I decided to preorder the game on Steam a few days ago. I might as well bite the bullet since my doubts are based on nothing more than minor paranoia. The gameplay clips we've seen and interviews from the developers have convinced me enough to get the game on launch. Got the Digital Deluxe Edition, so hopefully, those concerns weren't true.

On the plus side, a lot of HL scens in the IGN review are indoor areas & areas that don't have large draw distances. The Switch can do ok in those areas. The large, forested outdoor areas & broom flying are where I'm most nervous/skeptical.

Given the PS5 can't even get the game above 1080p for 60fps and the PC Port seems to be a total disaster, I wouldn't hold your breath for a great Switch port. I assume, unless they do a crazy amount of optimisation between now and the Summer, the game is probs gonna either run like arse on the Switch, or be extremely compromised to get it running semi-stably.

Currently playing a LOT of Marvel Snap on Mobile and working my way through Dying Light 2 on PC.

I think I'm gonna cave and get this on xbox. I may double dip if the switch version gets good enough reviews.
