    Damn. Maybe I’m just petty. But I liked the last one a lot. And would rather they stick to that type of gameplay. I won’t be buying this. Hopefully it’s fun tho

                They are making it on switch, I think that if they make it 2 player game it will be awesome

                    This isn't worthy for the Switch it should be a 3DS title to give it some love. This is actually an insult coming from BOTW. I take it that Nintendo is trying to target those who hate non liner Zelda so they are going to dumb way down. I just want a NEW 2D Zelda game if they are going to do this so we will all be surprised. I have never played LA but I know that it's not new and will over a short time the flaws will come out pretty quickly after universal praise and usual censorship by the same fans.

                      Nintendo has already begun to consider the Switch as a handheld alongside the 2/3DS family, just more powerful. They seem to be going in a less console specific direction forward, which isn't too bad, either. I think in the future, their focus will likely be more oriented towards providing their games on a single platform, to solve the dilemma of needing multiple devices to play different games. At least that would be a more convenient approach for their consumers.

                      As great as all LoZ music is, "Ballad of the Wind Fish" is the greatest. But someone always starts chopping onions whenever I hear it.

                                        Not sure how I'm feeling about this. Link's Awakening is my favorite Zelda game (with Minish Cap being 2nd) however part of the reason I loved it was its darkness. This one looks too rainbow-ish.

                                          Aw dang, I thought it would be like botw. Botw is the best Zelda game in my opinion. It makes you have nostalgia once you finish it tho and it’s sad idk how I could have such feelings for a video game lol.

                                                  Excited to see a remake of the first one i ever played, but kinda wish they'd done TLZ: Return to Koholint, or some kind of sequel where the story continues or something. I'd of loved to see plot twist where the Windfish only brought link to his dream in the first game to prepare him for a real koholint he would have to save. Or even if a sorcerer stole the wind fish's dream and made a real place that you have to save from disappearing; and, as important, everyone still remembers link. Imagine Marin's plea on the beach... "Link.... you must find the (7) stones of memory... They're scattered across the island... Only they have to power to save us.... I don't want to disappear again...."

                                                                  • Creepy Noodles

I love BotW, but hate the weapon durability with swords breaking after like 5 to 10 hits... Please tell me none of the other games had that.
                                                                  Either way, I'm still excited for this though.
