    clannad.

    The classic Key visual novel, Clannad, will be making its way to the Nintendo Switch. Prototype will be in charge of bringing the game to the Switch platform in full 1080p, while also adding a touchscreen-only control method. Clannad previously released on Steam in 2015, with Sekai Project officially translating the Japanese visual novel into English for the first time. The Switch port will release on July 4th, and will retail for $44.99.

    Your classic old Switch port for fresh 45 dollar.

    Links Awakening fits on a Gameboy cartridge lenghwise, but look at the price of the Remake. It's all a bit overpriced.

    I mean people paid 10$ more than what tropical freeze originally launched for on the WiiU back in 2014 to get 1080p resolution and Funky Kong. Heck, the title was a WiiU select title being sold for 20. A brand new switch copy was half the price of a Refurb WiiU + Nintendo Select Copy of Tropical Freeze. Which really scales how much of a bad value the switch version was.

    I looked it up since I was curious, apparently the console version is listed as "15+" for the most part. Maybe M was just the next best thing since the gap between T and M is quite large in the US rating system.

    This game is 45 bucks on pretty much every platform, including Steam. Niche games tend to be on the more expensive side since the target audience is smaller and is often willing to pay more for quality games, just look at stuff like shmups. Plus the game is well over 50 hours, possibly over 100 judging by Steam reviews, so it's not like it isn't worth it if you're new to it.

    While I agree that it shouldn't cost $60, that length metric is insanely dumb. The original Legend of Zelda was 1/8 the size of Link's Awakening, yet it was a console game.
    Length of the game is also not directly correlated to code length, otherwise modern games would be around 20,000 times as long as the RPGs of the SNES generation.

    Am i the only one who sees the fuck up in this.

    That it says switch version will support 1080p yet support touch screen only controls.

    The switch screen is 1280x720 so if its touch screen only it cant be played docked therfore only 720 not 1080.

    wat

    they added touch controls. they didn't remove every other control scheme.

    it's a nice touch for stuff like this since just holding the tablet is a much nicer experience than having to awkwardly move around the Joy Cons for touch stuff

    To be fair, there's not much point in buying modern videogames to begin with - original Elite has a whole universe that fits into 40kb of tape noises, making all the other existing videogames overpriced.

    while also adding a touchscreen-only control method.

    Says that touch screen only will be its control scheme?

    If it said while adding touch screen controls would mean it could support optional but it says

    while also adding a touchscreen-only control method.

    So id love to see how theyre making a touch screen only game run im 1080p when it the switch can only run 720p at push

    a touchscreen-only control method means a control method that works only using the touch screen

    like, you do not require joy cons to operate the game. i dont know if you're intentionally being dense or what but here, let me put your mind at ease
    there is more than one control scheme

    stop this madness

    In that sense, the FFVII remake should cost $400 as it takes a very long time to get everything and it is on 2 bluray discs.

    if its to add a touch screen ONLY scheme then like ill repeat is touch screen only, difference is its saying ONLY not will be adding touch screen support OPTIONALLY.

    thus explain how your going to play in 1080p when your using its touch screen ONLY controls.

    its not saying like most games it will add touch screen support because it saying it will add touch screen ONLY support, thus impossible to play docked which is the only way youd run the game in 1080p.

    and then its not touch screen only controls if it has other means of controls, therefore back to my initial post before you came quoting getting it all wrong.

    so explain how a tablet screen that can only run at 720 is going to achieve 1080p when using its touch screen ONLY controls.

    ok dissecting this, no you cannot play in 1080p and use touch controls. that much is correct. the game supports other control schemes that can be used in either handheld or docked mode. the 1080p images are for docked mode, not handheld mode. you still with me here buddy?
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    like really, just look at the eshop. look at the supported play modes. look at the fact it supports the pro controller. actually just look.

    you have to be a troll. i really really hope you are, because just. i worry if not.

    When someone doesnt understand the meaning of "add/adding"addition" etc pp.
    What you mean is "replace/replaced/replacing".

    When someone doesnt understand

    We are adding touch screen controls

    We are adding touch screen only controls

    So tell me when touch screen only controls are added how are you to use touch screen when docked this get 1080p.

    Portable only supports 720.

    So again to my initial post its fucked up as it cant have touch screen only controls can it if you have the option of other controls.

    Thats like getting a penut butter sandwich and saying its only penut butter, but you find it also has jam.

    If its got touch screen only controls yet supports normal contols then its not touch screen only
