Series like Final Fantasy aren't about nostalgia, they're about trying new things with each main installment for better or worse.

Which, until XIII, they managed to do without almost completely removing all semblance of familiarity.

Getting to the Goof-Off a little early here?

Also sword slinging slimes.

And now it even has a JP release date. Good luck trying to collect all the versions.

"But will it be available for the Switch?"
Squee - "Maybs?"
Nin - "BUT ZELDA THOUGH!"

It's infuriating how little of a shit everyone seems to give about that device.

I'm honestly hoping that we'll see every Switch game on the Wii U.  I mean, I've filed it under "Total Pipedream", but I really don't see why not.  Nobody's gonna buy a Wii U anyways, so it wouldn't scalp Switch sales.  And it's not like the Switch is significantly more powerful than the Wii U either, afaik.

^ the issue there is that then a lot of folks who own a Wii U won't buy a Switch.

Though you probably already figured that, since you're not an idiot...

I admit it was wishful thinking of the highest order...

EDIT: The more I look at that pic, the funnier it gets, @glassjawsh .  That shield...

That, or the fact that Nintendo's just gonna discontinue the device within a year or two, http://www.siliconera.com/2017/04/13/nes-classic-edition-discontinued-north-america/

Its getting easier to get into Willy Wonka's chocolate factory than it is to find a Nintendo console these days.

The Switch is apparently selling very well, which is awesome. Strong third party support still seems to be lacking a bit, though. I mean, Nintendo apparently has support from several big companies, but a lot of said companies' big-selling titles (as generic as some of them may be) aren't being produced for the Switch (at least as of yet), and I wonder if that will hurt the system in the end. I imagine a lot of supposed supporters are playing wait-and-see now, as I'm sure a lot of customers are doing (like myself).


...I've said it before, and I'll say it again: If this ends up not working out for Nintendo, for whatever reason, they should do the Sega thing, and focus on making/producing games for other platforms. Their games are fuckin' awesome. I would imagine Mario on Xbox/PS would sell like freakin' hotcakes... did in the 50s, I presume.

There were a LOT of Wii U holdouts just waiting for Zelda, I guess.

License Boards confirmed. Unlike FF12 though, I would not expect to ever be able to entirely fill out the board without ridiculous amounts of postgame grinding.

Very pumped for this game on PS4 and highly pleased with the graphics we have seen so far.
