Oh yeah, I'm making the Switch day 1 baby.

They played some of the Wii U version. That had some slowdown and issues that hopefully the Switch version gets around too.

Recent rumors hinted at around June 2017 for a release date with Switch version arriving first and the Wii U version a week or two later.

It makes no matter to me really, i didnt buy a WiiU because there was no zelda (only nintendo I don't own) but with zelda 100% dropping on Switch it's a day 1 buy

Emperor Smeat 12-02-2016 07:04 PM

Nintendo some amiibo goodies for the game.

8-bit Link will reward you with a random number of barrels. You might find rupees inside too!
Ocarina of Time Link will reward you with a random amount of meat.
Toon Link will reward you with a random amount of fish.
Wind Waker Zelda will reward you with a random selection of plants.

So, not quite as impactful as the Wolf Link amiibo, then. Scanning that figure brings in Wolf Link as your battlefield buddy, and from my hands-on experience, he's both helpful and adorable. There's also going to be support for the three Breath of the Wild amiibo, but it's unclear to what end.

Wish Switch played Wii U games so I could sell my Wii U.

Personally, getting the Switch day 1. A better version of the game and it's portable.

Januarys event should hopefully make the decision easier when they fully confirm what's hitting the Switch year 1 so you can see if the whole system is worth it or not.

Big Vic 03-01-2017 03:25 PM

Amazon says I will get this Friday.... and I have Friday off :D

They're always sent early in the UK. We usually get Tuesday releases on a Saturday.

I could tell from some of the Switch review vids, just their reactions. They couldn't review Zelda, but you could tell how blown away they were, dying to talk about it.

Which was strange, because a lot of the views for the Switch itself were lukewarm.

Seems weird to be lukewarm when the system seems to have provided one of the best games of all time on day one.

#BROKEN Hasney 03-02-2017 07:09 AM

IGN 10/10
Easy Allies 4.5/5
Metro 10/10 (Usually harsh and has this quote: "In Short: The best Zelda there’s ever been, and very possibly the best video game ever made.")
USGamer 5/5
Giant Bomb 5/5
Destructoid 10/10

Has a 98/100 on Open Critic. "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is ranked in the top 0.0% of games scored on OpenCritic
Based on 22 scored reviews, 27 reviews total."

Nintendo did it. They fucking did it.

And then the Switch died, 6 months later :(

#BROKEN Hasney 03-02-2017 08:36 AM

One of the reviewers was posting on another forum.

Previous all-time favorites (abridged):
Chrono Trigger
Final Fantasy VI
Super Metroid
Super Mario World
The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
Metroid Prime

BotW might be better than all of these games.
Good god.

If Zelda becomes and absolute must play videogame, that should be more than 6 month lifespan already. That takes you into new Mario Kart, Platoon and eventually Mario, which could also be a mega title.

This was absolutely crucial for them, they gambled it all on Zelda, and it looks like they hit it out of the park.

#BROKEN Hasney 03-02-2017 09:02 AM

Mario Kart is April, ARMS is around there too, Splatoon 2 in summer as well as E3 then we're into the fall for Fire Emblem, Mario and allegedly Xenoblade 2.

Combined with the indies announcement, I think it'll be my most played console this year.

Maluco 03-02-2017 09:19 AM

Def picking up Skyrim too, possibly my favourite game of all time, to have it portable is just :D

I would have gotten a switch if this was Switch exclusive (and it allowed me to play my Wii U games). I wonder what the sales of the Wii U version will be like.

Maluco 03-02-2017 09:29 AM

I am wondering that too. I went the other way and traded in my Wii U. Got 160 for it, 3 games and a Yoshi Wiimote. Only 110 to add tomorrow for the Switch!

I think a lot of people who own the Wii U (not many) will have done one of those two things. Either "I only want Zelda" and keep the money, or "I better trade this in before the value drops"

Maluco 03-02-2017 09:31 AM

I really liked my Wii U for what it's worth, so I doubt I will be disappointed with this.

Big Vic 03-02-2017 09:31 AM

Didn't pre order the switch? are you worried about a shortage?

Maluco 03-02-2017 09:34 AM

I was when I watched a few videos, but there doesn't seem to be a shortage where I live. In fact, you can still preorder online as of right now

#BROKEN Hasney 03-02-2017 09:36 AM

Yeah, Nintendo has never been a big deal over here. Looks like they're selling a lot as Zelda has sold out on the Switch in a lot of places, but other than the Wii, Nintendo was always at least second best.

The Master System and Mega Drive outsold the NES and SNES.

Maluco 03-02-2017 09:39 AM

I did pre-order too, just have the trade in cash in my game account

Maluco 03-02-2017 09:41 AM

I think the fact it is a March release means there is less demand too. They should be well stocked by Christmas, but I imagine that it will almost be a like a new release again at Christmas with Mario.

Shadow 03-02-2017 09:47 AM

I heard the game tastes horrible.

road doggy dogg 03-02-2017 11:13 AM

my hype level is reaching goddamn critical mass

#BROKEN Hasney 03-02-2017 11:35 AM

Just watched some dude go straight for Ganon with only a single heart container as his only upgrade. Enemies just one shotted him, but if you're good enough, it actually looks possible.

Big Vic 03-02-2017 11:42 AM

Sounds like a good game for speed runners then.

On the other end of the spectrum for completionists, no-one knows yet. Been ranges of 50-100 hours to complete the main game with some side stuff, but that's not doing 100% of the stuff.
