IGN: “On this week's episode, we break down every single detail revealed in the Direct, from the new first party games unveiled (Mario Maker 2! Link's Awakening remake!)”
The rune factory 5 announcement made me tear up a little lol. Its been years since the last installment, neverland went bankrupt a few years ago, and all hope was lost for any more games...til the direct happened. Thank the lord.
Is it that great of a game? I was sorely disappointed when I saw that announced.
Its not like that is the only game that got announced. Also, RF4 was a great game thAt not alot of people have played due to it being exclusive to the 3DS.
Lol yea most reactions I saw for this games announcement were...underwhelming. Its pretty much like stardew valley but in an anime fantasy world. Its actually a spin off of the harvest moon series. An action jrpg+farming simulation. Very addicting and quite the fun cast of characters in each game. Its just these games are niche and dont really appeal to much ppl since theyre text heavy and slow games. Very unfortunate that the series didnt get the attention it deserves. We are very lucky to get the 5th game and hope it gets what it deserves with the port and new game being on the switch. Very underrated series.
Yep same man, same.
Astral Chain looks awesome, same goes for Fire Emblem and Daemon X Machina. The Link's Awakening Remake looks great IMO and Super Mario Maker 2 gives fans what they want and it looks like a load of fun. This Direct didn't have everything I wanted to see, but it gave me what I needed to see from Nintendo. Switch has a phenomenal lineup of games coming in the not too distant future.
Link's Awakening was the first Zelda game I ever played. I was 8 (this was around '95), and until then had mostly just played Megaman X, DKC, Super Mario, mostly action and platformers on the SNES and NES. I had never played an RPG until Link's Awakening, and later Super Mario RPG. I never knew that games could be so deep, involved and emotional. Obviously story-telling in games has come a long way, but back then, that was a revelation to me. I was obsessed, fell in love with the series, and have been a lifelong fan since. Not gonna lie, I got pretty emotional when I saw the trailer.
Who remember's this Link's Awakening commercial? Nintendo should re-create it again.... https://www.youtube.com/wat...
LoZ games aren't rpgs at all. They are action adventure games. There are a few elements of rpgs but the closest a Loz game has come to an rpg is breath of the wild. That being said, I'm sure you and everyone else who has fond memories of this game are super excited. I bought it for 3DS back in 2012 and played maybe 20% of it....liked what it was but was into other games at the time and kind of forgot about it. So around 80% of this game should be new to me. Can't wait to play but $60 does seem a bit much. $50 would be better
Zelda II was an rpg.
Marin singing at the end of the LA announcement got me crying. Other high notes were Daemon X Machina showing some good potential, and Astral Chains looking like a sick new IP.
Ugh the cheesiness is strong with gaming nostalgia..
You can say the same thing with just about every nostalgia out there.
