Wii U version was utterly gimped due to them not wanting it to be superior in any way to the switch version. Terrible idea, making your game worse so that some customers don't feel bad. Not to mention false advertising,

Great find even cheaper than before ooh this will go mega hot!
Hell of a spot. Essential!
wow it went hot within 3 mins that was quick, there's stock in swindon if it helps anyone
This reminds me to get back to playing the game. Have had a bit of a hiatus lately.
Wish it was this price on Switch heat added though!
wow!! actually in stock at my local (Ilkeston)
Is this the best price anywhere?
What’s the usual?
Still seems quite high for a Wii U game?

Anyone played the story DLC thing? Any good??

Zelda games always hold their value, especially soon to be discontinued Wii U version of it its just a shame the tablet specific features were canned
OP you're a legend!
DS mentioned this for Christmas, but with a £50 price tag he chose something else.
Went via Vochercodes for a £5 cashback, so really only cost me half the price I could have paid a few months back, and its his birthday next month!
To sweeten the deal I only paid 55p on my card as the balance was taken care of by vouchers earned in previous VC windfalls. Doesn't get much better than that!!

One of them is good the other is divisive. You get a 'motorbike' with one of them - make of that what you will!

Thanks OP, I did think this was Switch for a second, but then realised Currently playing this and really enjoying it. Starts hard in fairness, but once you get some decent gear it does almost swing the total opposite way and becomes quite a bit less challenging.

Even easier if you have Amiibo statues/cards - some really good gear drops from them.
Playing this for full 100% need 100ish more koroko seeds.

It will hold it's value but you'll never make a ton of money off it. New versions of Twilight Princess for Gamecube can be had for £100-120 and that game is 12 years old now.

I terms of getting around the map quickly moping up post-game stuff the bike must be great, no? Does it run out of petrol or anything??

You’re joking right? Wii u and switch versions of this game are almost identical. The only visible difference is it’s 1080p on the switch, and a few FPS drops which each console suffers from.

The Switch version is 720p in portable mode, and 900p in docked mode.

He's not talking about graphics performance, he's talking about all the gamepad functionality that was shown years back, and then removed so it could be played on a normal controller for the switch. And no, it's not rendered in 1080p either. TP and WW are the only native 1080p Zeldas. Both on Wii U.

There are 120 shrines, about ten towers, and a couple of other notable locations that all allow for fast travel.

Honestly - there's barely a need for a horse in my opinion. You never have to glide far to get what you need. Even more so with a stamina upgrade and the other perk you can acquire from main quest(s).

Probably fun to play around with but not likely required (just like a lot of the content).

In my opinion the left too much of it in. Tilting the thing in some shrines is more than enough. Pratting about holding it up to the screen to "scan" a Divine Beast or locate a Korok seed in the over world... I'm good with the pad, thanks.

As someone else pointed out, I was referring to the gamepad functionality, which was arguably tested/proven to be a great idea in OoT 3D, and mastered in Wind Waker/Twilight Princed HD. It's been celebrated by nearly everyone who played it, and only adds to the games, so the idea of a new Zelda using this set-up, never mind a new open world Zelda, was a dream come true.
Still no clue what they were thinking removing it. I mean, I do, but I hate the thought process.

It feels like they left the stuff nobody wanted in, and removed what mattered. Nobody wants to gyro a ball around a maze to solve a puzzle, but a large percent of the players want to avoid pause menus by having all your opinions available on the pad whenever you want them, and those player will likely want gyro quick aiming while they're at it. Options to turn it off are fine, but these features being removed was clearly to make sure the Switch version wasn't missing anything, and it's just a spit in the face to the customers who actually supported the Wii U.

Yep, I've completed the game and barely used horses. However - anyone new to the game may want to take note... the final fight requires some horse riding capabilities.
Used vouchercodes to get £5 Argos voucher with this. Valid until tomorrow.
Game of a generation. Absolutely amazing from start to finish

Yeah and thankfully, horseriding mechanics are pretty tight and easy to grasp!

Avoiding the pause menu was never a thing. Changing weapons, clothes or what ever is always going to trigger a pause while the asset loads in. I agree seem-less inventory management would be wonderful, but it wasn't ever a thing on the Wii U. You'd need to have all items and all combinations of items in the buffer at all times to hot-swap without a pause for loading. It was a pipe-dream, never even on the table.

Aiming a la 'Splatoon' I could've gotten behind though.
