    I would first buy Super Mario Maker 2 and then Wait for that new Zelda game, that was planned for 2019 (if it ever see a release). I hope it don't get dealeyed like Breath Of The Wild.

    The art style is cute, I don't know why people don't like it. I don't like 2D Zelda games but I might get this one because it's so adorable.

    For me, it's a bit bright and looks a bit Childish. It looks good in Caves and Dungeons (and not so bright parts of the Overworld), but in the bright parts of Overworld it looks a bit Childish to me. Could be, because that is the first time, (for me) that they make it so cute. But, that it just a Trailer they could Change that.

    And I'm sorry but don't agree with such a one-sided opinion. Too bad, so sad.

    I'll probably sound like a "retro fanboy"
    But LA/OoA/OoS are the Zelda games using my favorite 2d art style
    As for the 3d art style, my favorite is TP

    I think LA needs some TLC à la AM2R. The opening sequence had me PUMPED for a remake of my favorite Zedla game, and then it was like, "Oh, some beady-eyed, turd toy character art style..." when gameplay footage started rolling.

    If you're going to change art style and game mechanics, it should be for a title that has strong storytelling and pacing. Link's Awakening really wasn't that. To me, it always seemed be an attempt at being counter-mainstream (to possibly not sour the taste for fans of 1, 2, ALttP and keep development quick and inexpensive), and that was always its appeal to me. In the same way that Mario Land 2 had the character familiarity while toting a new gameplay feel, Link's Awakening offered a similar experience with a Zelda flavor: It packed the surprise of being huge for a DMG game with fluid controls and item mechanics, enemy variety, and dungeon designs that weren't overly difficult and could be belted out one by one on car rides or school day afternoons.

    All of that said, I'd like to reiterate that the story wasn't the strong point of this installment, and that if the game engine and its mechanics are completely different from the original, I believe the storytelling should be fleshed out in a way that expands on the absurdity, and visits more on the uncertainty of the island's reality, all in a way that can improve its place in the timeline theory.

    That's just all of my hopes and dreams in one basket, though. My expectations aren't set too high, and we'll only get what we're going to get. At the very least it's an entry point to the top-down Zelda formula for a whole generation of people whose only familiarity is possibly BotW. Perhaps enough will be inspired to check out the GBC version for the original experience and see for themselves if a nearly 30 y/o game holds up or if the remake was justified. It can also serve as a reminder to the originals' fans that the classic will always be there to fall back on.

    No, this isn't like the original reception of WW's celshade graphical style. People just didn't know the possibilities of that style. There's literally no promise to this generic look.

    No, this isn't like ALBTW because that one gets a pass as a 3DS game, whereas this will be a (most likely) full-priced Switch game.

    No, to criticize the graphical style is not to mean that the game will be bad. The original game is great, and so a remake is bound to be good gameplay-wise, unless Nintendo somehow messes it up. It will still look like crap (unless by some miracle Nintendo changes the style, or at least Link's awful design, for the final release).

    Yes, as a fan of the series and the game in particular I will almost certainly play it (not sure about paying for it) even with these disappointing graphics. I think the main issue was the shock of the contrast of seeing the BOTW style logo and the beautiful animated intro right before the trailer cut to the gameplay footage with those New Super Mario Bros graphics.

    If you think the graphics look like NSMB, I think you need to get your eyes checked.

    That's true, NSMB graphics looks better.
    (But not as better as the original LADX).

    It's a pity that for the artistic style I'm not going to buy the game (although I'll play it in Termosphere someday)

    The graphics look like NSMB's not in that they look identical, but in that they are both bland, lifeless, and uninspired, especially when compared to the much more charming graphics of older games in each series.

    I can't really think of any game, let alone mobile, that looks so toy-like.

    hope that it won't be "shop exclusive"
    tho, I might need a bigger SD card (64gb).
    even tho I only run physical games and only use sd for Photos/videos/DLC/Updates etc
    my 32gb has free space of 22.5gb, but a 64gb can't hurt regardless of this game's avalblitly
    If it is either physical (better) or digitally only (kinda bad)
    bad cause the whole process of adding money to eshop via card is kinda a pain,

    Reason why "on 3ds old3ds I had since 2011, when I bought smash bros 3ds from shop using money (50E)
    but in parts (10e, 20e, 20e) as a whole 50e wasn't possible unlike on switch,
    I added all the parts one after the other, all went through fine, and then bought the game with that money, and that went fine,
    however, next time I went to my card's bank, they told me that from that transaction, that someone tried to get into my card,
    so they blocked it fro that reason, not that the transaction stopped or anything, it went through fine 100%, I was just told this werid thing,
    so since then I have stopped buying stuff from shop because of this, the most recent thing I bought was the DLC Passes for switch games Zelda/FE warriors, tho they went fine (20e)."

    anyways, hope this game can come out as physical, but I'll still buy it digital even if it doesn't come out in physical from as I loved/love link's awakening.

    also, while searching the net, I found this interesting article on the game:

    (warning: read only if you've beaten the game or don't care about spoilers".)

    glad to see this coming to switch on 20/9! will be getting it for sure, and the amino also.
    but maybe the Europe limited edition for 30 euros extra? from the standard edition (60 euro)?

    im happy to see the color dudgeon from DX back :)
    tho, im a bit sadden not to see the "camera" shop from DX comeback to the remake,
    it was such a nice mini game, that rat/mouse dude taking pics was funny at times, oh and with Marin tagging along too!

    After playing a few hours I must say it looks really nice, but the depth of field is horrible.

    yeah, the game is wroth it's money for the nostalgia it gives.
    the chamber dungeons are nice, tho only for a bit, after a while they get rather boring, plus
    dampe feels kinda out of place in koholint island's world.
    and the rewards for the chamber dungeons aren't that good.
    I've had the game now for a week, on the final boos now, it's easy to beat, heck you can't die that easily.
    0 deaths is easy to do.
    it was fund to play.
    the style they used for the dungeons works great, and I'm wondering if they could make Zelda 1 (nes) remake using this dungeons and world style,
    that would be aweomse! if Nintendo could do it (they totally can to if they wanted to).
    not sure if the wooden sky loft bird in one of the houses means that we may get a future switch remake of skyward sword?
    that would be cool, well
    in ALBW, in link's house they added in major's mask, and that game was in 2013, major's mask came out in 2105, lol.
