It might have been interesting if the entire game looked like that cartoon animation Nintendo made for the opening cut scene.
But considering the original game, I see why Nintendo used the plastic look and it will work just fine.
Out of all the games announced, this is the one I am most interested in.

I'm so excited to play this. I can't contain myself!

It'll be tricky playing a conventional Zelda game after Breath of the Wild.

The art style is absolutely beautiful, and I'm glad they went with it. I wouldn't have minded another game in the LBW engine, but this is gorgeous as well.

Also desperately needed after Breath of the Wild left me very unsatisfied

I like how the game looks. It's fun to compare to the original and see how they've updated the characters and the environment. I was also reminded that Wart is in this game. I wonder what he looks like.

It hasn't been that long since I finished Link's Awakening on 3DS. I hope they've added some new content as well.

Thats what I'm saying, that there may be more games than just this bundled together, there is no tagged title like HD or 3D.

Also, as much as I'd like to agree on a price point, I would pay for what they ask, because games are expensive.

Did not expect this game to even get a remake at all. So it was a bit of a surprise seeing it announced in the Direct.

Now, I'm going to be one those people, but I do not like the art style very much. The visuals look way too much like those cheap 3d action games you can get on your smart phone. I can't help but see it that way, even after watching the trailer a few times. Was hoping it would get a similar art style to the artwork that was in the manual after watching the opening to the game in the trailer.

I wouldn't be surprised if this was originally a 3DS game before they decided to move it over to the Switch.

@MrGam3andBu1ld No, publishers are greedy. Call of Duty made over half a billion US dollars in just three days. The average budget is around 50 million, to 100 million for really expensive games; marketing included. Yet it's still riddled with MTX. If this game is $40; let's say Nintendo gets $20 on average (if it's a digital copy this would be $40). 1 million copies sold equals $20 million in revenue. That would mean it has to be Nintendo's most expensive game if they can't make a profit of that. Of course, it's Zelda, so it will sell way more than just a million copies, and it's the Switch, so the game will sell even better. I'm confident a lot of companies can make a decent profit with <$60 titles and no MTX

Yeah, I’m excited for this. But I’m not biting on it for $60.

This announcement blew me away, im beyond excited. Although I cant wrap my head around people saying the art style is ugly. (it kinda reminds me of 3d dot game heros for some reason?) Its so dang cute, looks super clean too. And to top it all off its one of my favorite 2D Zelda games.

This was by far the highlight of the direct for me.

@Octane Fair enough

@Starburst The characters remind me of the little mini NPCs of disney infinity

My only question is if they continue with this art style, I don't how I'd feel about LttP getting this art style when ALBW is beautiful

The problem with this whole argument is that a lot of the companies that feel the current prices aren't high enough (so feel the need to include micro-transactions), are also the companies that produce yearly installments, or biannual installments of all their main franchises, which reduces the value of them over a much quicker timespan.
If you try and buy a Zelda game 6 months after it's released, it's probably still the same price it launched at. If you buy an Assassin's Creed game 6 months after release, it's probably half price already.
So they are partly responsible for their own problems, simply because they're so unoriginal developers.

It's dangerous to go alone! Stay at home.

@MrGam3andBu1ld If they did a LttP remake I would guess they would keep it the same as ALBW just to stay consistent. I would hope so at least.

Art style reminds me of Pixel Junk Monsters 2, which I like, so no beef from me.

I'm not overly familiar with the artwork from the original, so when I saw the egg on top of the mountain I thought, 'Oh. Cool. A Zelda x Yoshi cross. Should be interesting'.

What better way to celebrate than firing something out of the pipe?

I'm not sure if this game means that they're going to do all the old 2D games in this style. Could be a one time thing. I'm positive the next one will be a new entry in the franchise.

This looks good though, so I'm not complaining.

Is it me or is the most similar art style to this from a pervious Zelda game is Freshly-Picked Tingle’s Rosy Rupeeland?

This comparison video from Gamexplain made me notice that one of the best improvements is not having those annoying fixed screens you have to transition between. Lol that and being able to select multiple weapons. Modern technology is nice. I also love that town theme:

@jump
we don't talk about that game... shivers

if they bundled the game with seasons ages, that could make sense. They're all gameboy titles and take place before link's awakening.

still holding out on LttP and NES Zelda getting in on the remake bundle too

I wouldn't mind if we could play that NES Breath of the Wild simulator used by the devs
