    Still not personally a fan of the graphical style they chose, but I love Link's Awakening so I'm definitely playing it anyways.

    I don't know, I don't see myself playing this. It's ok art style like something play doh 3D pop up but gameplay, difficulty, overall feeling is just babyish, like yoshi woolly world. I understand the nostalgia feeling but don't feel that here neither as we had this zelda game on eshop on previous generation consoles and on emulators etc.

    Have you seen the file size of this thing?!
    It's fucking 5.8GB!
    Dafuq, Odyssey was 5.7GB. How can such a game have more data than a fully fledged 3D sandbox game?!
    Goddamn, Nintendo, learn to save up space ffs.

    If this was $30-$40 (at most) I would be more excited, but updated visuals and maybe controls with a "dungeon builder" isn't really enough for $60.

    I mean, for $60 I could get FF VII, VIII, and IX or get both the crash and spyro collections brand new.

    Can’t wait for this, I’ve been fighting the urge to fire up my Gameboy since the remake was announced.

    It’s not my favourite Zelda art style, but I don’t mind it. Besides, I’ve never let looks stop me from playing a good game.

    I personally think it looks great. I understand why people may not like it though. I played the original years ago. Don’t know if I’ll play this one but it’s definitely worth a shot

    It doesn't look terrible visually, but it's too shiny. I'll be waiting for the "less shiny" patches that will no doubt be made.

    The artstyle is amazing and it makes sense with the theme of the game.
