Does it come with the keyring? The Game Collection are priced at the same with both poster and keyring.

The blue text above is a link. This is also Link...

That’s Zelda mate
I'm not convinced this game really justifies the £40-50 asking price so will wait for reviews before ordering!
I thought this was Zelda?

i thought Zelda was the black ball thing on a chain.



You might want to remove the chain if they've gone black.

And got so excited when I seen the animate trailer.. Then I saw the art style and it just disgusts me. So conflicted but I think I would rather play it with the original graphics!


That is exactly how I reacted too! ->

Nope, I can't get my physical copy of BOTW to work as it won't let me … Nope, I can't get my physical copy of BOTW to work as it won't let me play without updating it (I guess to be compatible with the newest console firmware) which I can't even do because all online services are restricted.I'm not going to risk buying a physical copy of a game only for it not not work at all or in a few months time.


Apparently this only happens if you have previously downloaded update data. So it wouldn't happen if you hadn't

Yes of course. A more important point the same member raised [in a …Yes of course. A more important point the same member raised [in a separate comment] is physical games no longer working on their own. Requiring an update, else they cannot be played at all. This raises serious concerns



Serious concern maybe, but only for people who are prepared to mess about or try to modify the software on the unit. I think if you’re going to do something like that then you can’t really moan when something goes wrong; you certainly can’t blame Nintendo if nothing works because you’ve done something to the console that you shouldn’t have. I get people like to tinker, but as demonstrated there, at your own risk. It’d be like me modifying the engine on my car, then moaning to the manufacturer when it breaks. Kind of. Not that I’m trying to be argumentative about it though!

It wasn't referring to modified consoles. It seems that on current Switch software version, Zelda BotW requires download update. Can't play the game without. I'm not entirely sure whether this is the case yet, as it may only be if update data has been downloaded previously, and subsequently deleted.
Edited by: "jco83" 14th Aug
Oh, I see. I don’t have BOTW so wasn’t aware that’s how it worked. I put Mario Kart in my Switch 26/12/‘17 and it hasn’t been taken out yet: not touched anything else!
I have a question. If I buy a Nintendo Switch, and I register any game (like this one) on my account to try the Switch, and then I see that I don't like the console, can I have a refund for both? I guess I would have a refund just for the console right?
I would like to try the switch for a few days with any game, but this thing is limiting me so much..
Let me know please, thanks!

No Princess Zelda it is not, that's Link as he said.

I have the same opinion but at least with Zelda or any other Nintendo …I have the same opinion but at least with Zelda or any other Nintendo triple A game you know you can buy it & once completed you can sell it for near what you paid. They tend to hold their value for quite a while


Quite a while is an understatement... Have you seen what the original gameboy edition goes for on eBay? About £30!! (Not the obvious fakes from Hong Kong)

I haven't seen the Gameboy prices but I've got several GameCube games that are worth 2/3 more than they were when new

But 2nd hand off eBay. Then you can sell it for about the same.

They don't get linked to my Nintendo account if I play those games?

Games you buy digital link to your account. And you can remove that from console.

Physical games you can just sell for about the same on eBay too.

You can delete your account from console anytime.

I know the feeling. I remember trading mgs twin snakes into game & getting a few quid, couple of years later I was crying when I saw what it was worth which is why I no longer trade, I just hourd games until I run out of room
