    Would purchasers of the download version get a discount if they subsequently bought the physical copy? I prefer physical copies of my games but also don't want to wait to see if they decide to make a physical release later.

    I might have to update to get this. This was one of the have-to-get games in my opinion.

    It certainly LOOKS nice, but the question is if the gameplay is nice as well.

    Well you could ask the same question of any new release ;)

    True enough, but considering most people seem to be calling it "basically F-Zero", the question is if the gameplay matches that :P

    I read that in GBP it'll cost £10.99 (price of an amiibo) so that's more than enough to make it a solid purchase and with the new Nintendo account system coming in March 2016 everything is falling to its place. :) I just hope there'll be a lot of players online to play against. ;)

    I hate to compare it to F-Zero, because even though it shamelessly rips off F-Zero, it is obviously trying to go in it's own way too...

    But one of the best parts of F-Zero is that physics matter. If I go too quickly over the top of a hill in F-Zero I lose traction and come off the ground. In this game, all the parts where the car flies through the air are scripted events. The cars might as well be on an invisible track floating in the air, because they act like it. Idk it just looks like a shoddy futuristic racer.

    No matter what happens the fact is this game will be a technical beast. As far as pushing Nintendo consoles is concerned Shin'en is in its own league.

    Does anyone remember the Wiiware title that was released way back when? Hopefully it's better than that...

    Googled that and nothing seemed to appear. I did however find this:



    Just wow, it looks insanely fast and awesome. I really hope the Wii U crowd supports this game because it definitely deserves and for an indie title, it puts some AAA racing games to shame.

    HERO mode, that's it!

    this is looking more and more like an unofficial f zero prequel

    thanks
