    is this a physical game cart or a shop download only?

    It's a remake not a remaster. So, they can add more map and perhaps some new secondary quests.
    A face lifting cannot make an old game suitable for today standards.

    I would guess it's a physical game cart. Would be silly to not release a cart since a lot of people happily would get it physically!

    but they won't just like they never did in their other remakes. the best you can expect is the DX dungeon included.

    OK seriously though, can't wait to get this game, one of the rare times I completed a game (played on my brothers gameboy green screen).

    Oh man, I had not even thought this far ahead yet. Can you imagine this being a $60 game? Sadly, I can with it being Nintendo and all.

    IMO, some franchise should stick to their old price
    Even if it's on Switch and can be played as home console
    I mean, LA remake should be Albw price (40-50$)
    Same with Pokemon main franchise (40-50$)
    But sadly, theyll price it as a full AAA home console game :(

    When I read "3D Remake" I immediately thought it was going to look like Breath of the Wild, but no, it's Link to the Past meets Pocoyo.

    Still, better than nothing.

    Maybe they added some surprised dungeon and others that wasn't existed in game boy's version. Loved Zelda games!

    Glad they remade it... However they could have come up with a better art style... Looks like some quick made mobile game... :( I'll still buy it if it ends up good overall...

    If you mention the remaster of Zelda WW, TP and OoT, I agree. In that case they just updated the textures. But in this case they are re-doing the graphics.
    I would perhaps compare with the job done for Metroid 2 for 3DS, which I haven't played so far.

    I bet dollars to donuts that the same people who are bashing the art style are assuming the remake is going to suck.

    The art style really bugs me. I'd rather not have everything look like a toy, but it's really Link's face that bothers me.
