    Oh, I think there will for sure be something Zelda related in the Switch 2 launch window. Just saying it won't be a new game.

    In a perfect world the Switch 2 is backwards compatable and remember how bad ToTK ran on the Switch? Well on Switch 2 you can install it and run it at 1080p60!

    This is my hope, and that it upscales to 4k using some temporal upscaling implementation (FSR2+, DLSS, XeSS) when docked.

    It is not a strong hope, this is Nintendo we're talking about.

    Yeah, we really need to temper expectations. The Switch runs on a phone SoC, if it's going along the same lines (and be backwards compatible in the traditional sense) then it'll be a newer phone processor. And there aren't any phone SoC's doing that kind of graphical fidelity and super resolution yet, and I doubt a Switch 2 will be the first.

    I think the reasonable expectation is to see late stage PS4/Xbox One level graphics at 1080p60.

    So I'm trying really hard to get through a couple RPGs before I get into the Xenoblade DLC.

    Tales of Vesperia - I'm not really enjoying this one...but I'm so far into the game I don't want to just drop it...but it has told me that I'm just not a Tales of person I think. The characters, story, or gameplay just don't do it for me. Will be glad to have this one done.

    Octopath Traveler - Now this one is the complete opposite...I'm loving this game so very much. I'm almost done with the second chapters of each character. Some of the stories I don't care much for so far, but others are amazing. I'm totally vested in Primrose's and Therion's stories for example.

    My only complaint so far in chapter 2 of each person's story is that every boss has henchman with them. It gets very tiring and irritating that I have to manage crowd control constantly while trying to stay alive. All of the boss fights tends to take forever to finish because of this.

    We haven't seen a full new 3D Mario since Odyssey. Gimme whatever the experiments in Bowser's Fury was leading to.

    See, my son is super excited for Tears of the Kingdom, but I've never been much of a Zelda guy.

    But a new Mario...that is what I need. Not sure why we never got another 3D Mario on the Switch. (I know we got Bowser's Fury, but that was just a snack) Hopefully that means we have one in the works for early in the Switch 2 life.

    He was fine. I love Charles Martinet's Mario voice but it would get real old real fast with the amount of dialog in a movie.

    Besides everyone knows Capt. Lou is the only true voice of Mario.

    I fell hard for Tales of Symphonia on the Gamecube, and I think a lot of that residual affection got me through Vesperia which is pretty damned good but not able to match that first experience.

    I generally liked, if not loved, all but two or three of the Symphonia party members, and only liked about half of the Vesperia crew.

    On the other hand, Repede is a wolf who smokes a pipe, and the value of that can't be overstated.

    I didn't love Vesperia, but I was largely okay with it for the first 20 hours or so... minus Yuri and the party's massive hypocrisy, but I chalked that up to horrendously awful JRPG writing. Then the equipment issues started going from horrible to godawful, and the entire third act of the game is just a massive... what in the ever living fuck was anybody thinking with any of this bullshit?

    Symphonia and Abyss were absolutely my jam, minus technical issues, but Tales has gone so far away from that these days that it's nigh on unrecognizable.

    The Switch is a huge success and Nintendo is at the top of their game. That’s why they’ll pin all their hopes and dreams on the Switch 2 launch title, 1, 2, Switch Two: Featuring Link’s Kingdom Crossbow Training.

    well the N64 controller went in stock (at least in Canada). So I finally managed to pick that up. Guess i'll be subscribing to the Switch Online expansion pack at some point.

    annoyingly, the controller is $64.99 in Canada, and free shipping from Nintendo is at $65. Literally one cent. So because I'm very good with my money instead of paying probably $10 for shipping I bought the SNES controller for $40 as well.

    I've done the math. It checks out.

    So just blindly speculating on Zelda things they could potentially drop in a Switch 2 launch window, in order of what would make me the most to the least happy.

    1) They could announce some sort of B-team for "smaller" scale Zelda titles. Like in the ballpark of Ocarina of Time or A Link Between Worlds, while the main team continues to focus on BOTW type experiences. Probability: < 3%

    2) Proper HD releases of the 3DS remakes. Probability: 5%

    3) Finally port the WiiU releases of WW and TP. Probability: 15%

    4) An enhanced release of TOTK with some sort of upgrade path. Probability: 20%

    5) An enhanced release of TOTK without some sort of upgrade path. Probability: 60%

    6) Another Warriors game I won't play. Probability: 90%

    Please remake both Oracle games in the Switch Link’s Awakening style. Please release them both on the same day like the Oracle games did on GBC. It wouldn’t even bother me if they were separate purchases. It would be incredible. They have the assets for most of it. Just do it.

    I rather like the idea of smaller projects and updates and ports in between giant releases. Hey, did you like that massive open world game that you sank 300 hours into? Too much of that might wear thin, right? Well here are two adorable little adventures, each one takes about 12 hours. Enjoy!

    Edit: what I mean is, throw those on the Switch 2 at release, and it’s different enough from Tears as to not confuse people or burn out early adopters and give them something with a different tone and spin.

    I hadn't even thought about that. As someone who made multiple attempts to play the GBC Zeldas over the years, and never crossing the finish line on any of them until the Switch remake of LA, I would very much appreciate the same treatment for the Oracle games. It's the only way I'll ever beat them.

    My gut says the oracle games are unlikely to get more than an emulated rerelease since they are second tier zelda games: capcom made them for nintendo rather than being fully first party like link's awakening. Same with minnish cap and the four swords games. I think the oracles games are every bit as good as link's awakening, but Nintendo plays favorites with this stuff.

    Frankly, most of Nintendo's stuff looks way better than what many much more intensive games dco, because nitnendo actually understands concepts like "Style" and "Abstraction" rather than "This gun has more polygons than an entire map in the previous game!" (an actual quote given about UT3 compared to UT2004).

    Honestly, ToTK seems to run pretty well - i've defitnely noticed some chug at points, and there's some pretty gnarly stuff going on with shadows sometimes, but in general it looks great and runs very well - especially where I care about it running well (combat, high stakes movement)

    I've mentioned it before, but one of the leaks/rumors for Pokemon was that they were working on a "graphics patch" of sorts to make the game look/run better on the next Switch. And everything else in that leak was confirmed a few days later when the DLC was announced. So I think there's a good chance that's a real thing. If so, yeah, Zelda feels like another one you at least give an optimization patch or something to. TotK probably needs it way less than Pokemon which runs like dog shit (to the point I legit wonder if the game was designed for a Switch Pro that was rumored to be cancelled in favor of the next system outright because I've seen it running on an overclocked Switch and it actually runs kinda great), but there are definitely framerate issues that could be addressed.

    Would people rather an Oracle remake that was two full blown full priced games, with the typical complaints on having to buy both for the full experience? Or one full blown remake containing both campaigns, that might stand a good chance of getting a $6.9.99 price tag?

    Meanwhile I'm just girding my loins here for when they drop the games on NSO. There ain't gonna be any link cable support you know. And they won't create a special new wrapper to link the games. You can still do everything by password, and luckily they're not substantial passwords, and we now live in a smartphone camera age. Still get ready for some data entry.

    ...Meanwhile... Golden Sun looms in the darkness...

    I like the Fire Emblem Fates pricing model. Buying one game gives you the ability to buy the other as DLC for half-price.

    Although maybe that worked better when the going rate for physical releases was $40.

    Fates in specific is kind of the worst example of it because of the third episode that was only ever available as either DLC or on a special edition cart that was only sold in limited launch numbers. Now that the eshop is gone your only legal options are to either already have it installed, buy another 3DS with it already installed, or fork over $500+ for a used copy of the special edition.

    fates is also a bad example because the third DLC golden route thing was REALLY dumb
    the bar was pretty low on the story being dumber than the main 2 routes but they went under it somehow

    Haha indeed. Although nothing will ever get me like the Nohr campaign "We have to defeat Hoshido in order to save it" ridiculous plot thread because they needed Garon to sit on a magic chair in Hoshido (I wish that was a lie or hyperbole but it's literally the plot). Also the Valla curse that only exists to resolve the issue that any of these problems could have been fixed in two seconds by literally any characters actually bothering to talk to each other (and I still say you could talk around that bullshit curse so easily guys...) or, you know, Corrin being a spinless coward when it comes to standing up to fake daddy. Man that was such a shit story.

    I actually forget why the Revelations plot was so bad but I definitely remember that it was somehow worse than the garbage that was the two main campaigns and that's an accomplishment.

    Interesting, haven't seen it anywhere but Nintendo sent me an e-mail saying PAC-MAN 99 and DLC will be de-listed ("will no longer be available for download or purchase") in October this year. I don't even have it but that majorly sucks. An all-digital future is gonna be painful for consoles and preserving and maintaining access to games.

    I don't feel quite so bad for multiplayer games featuring 100 player matches, these things have always had a natural lifespan of their own, which has little to do with what medium you are getting the client through. You pretty much need the server code to preserve them, and that's not always easy to give out even for companies that want to. (using embedded tools or hardware owned by other companies, etc.)

    Not to mention that a multi-player game that requires a sizeable player base to function will eventually die regardless of the availability of actual software. Even if you kept the servers up indefinitely, people will eventually stop logging on.

    I posted it the other day in this thread. It will still be playable offline but yeah it still kinda sucks.

    I mean, there isn’t a third Capcom Zelda Oracle game, so that seems pretty unlikely to happen with a hypothetical Oracle remaster?

    Meanwhile I'm just girding my loins here for when they drop the games on NSO. There ain't gonna be any link cable support you know. And they won't create a special new wrapper to link the games. You can still do everything by password, and luckily they're not substantial passwords, and we now live in a smartphone camera age. Still get ready for some data entry.

    ...Meanwhile... Golden Sun looms in the darkness...

    I have a hard time with the older NES and GameBoy Zeldas, I'd probably pay good money if they gave the Oracle games the Links Awakening treatment and maybe combined them both into one game

    My gut says the oracle games are unlikely to get more than an emulated rerelease since they are second tier zelda games: capcom made them for nintendo rather than being fully first party like link's awakening. Same with minnish cap and the four swords games. I think the oracles games are every bit as good as link's awakening, but Nintendo plays favorites with this stuff.

    Which would be precisely the kind of shame we can expect from Nintendo, since the Oracles reused a lot from Link's Awakening. By making the Link's Awakening remake, they've already done a lot of the work.

    But, I mean, Super Mario Odyssey DLC would have been a slam dunk, too, and yet, here we are.
