So, Battle Princess Madelyn hit the stores last night in EU and I am very interesed, but Nintendo Life is saying in their review that,

Simply put, there's very little signposting at all. You’re pretty much on your own from the very beginning and other than the basic story at the start, you’re left to your own devices. There's no map or no in-game tutorial, either. Now, we appreciate that there will be some people who are delighted with this, since it provides a truly old-school experience. But even some of the older examples of the genre were at least designed to guide the player along – even if unconsciously so – whereas most of the time here, you feel like you’re picking a direction and hoping beyond hope that it’s the right one.

which I think is a crucial point. Does anybody know if they actually improved on that?

The Devs has stated in the delay announcement, that it will improve on sign-posting (see here: https://www.nintendolife.com/news/2018/12/battle_princess_made...)

So anybody knows if this actually improved?

I think this is a good game, old games didn't hold your hand either.

I played it and had no issue and sometimes you don't need map or tutorial old games of the past had this as well so that's nothing new here.

It's worth pointing out that NL makes a point to knock off points and complain about any game designed to be retro. It gets to the point where you really can't trust any of their reviews of retro style games. I really believe they have a pretty heavy bias against retro styled games.

Just a heads up. I bought it and pretty far in the story mode, but still can't use the magic bar and am clueless how to get to the Germany level manor and this was the second or third time the game gave no in game cues (am fine finding the solution myself, but some prompts can be done cleverly) and thus am stuck and have each time less desire to go back. This game had drawbacks that are not meritless...

I've not really bothered with the story mode, but the arcade mode is excellent.
Difficult, but fair, and pretty much non-stop action.
It certainly fills the empty Ghosts 'n Goblins spot in the Switch library
