Interest in Nintendo Switch +1

WOW 98 on meta critic with 53 critics so far.

Does anyone know how much Zelda will cost on the Switch digital store? I can't seem to find the digital retail price online anywhere.

All good here mate. Same with you. Hope you're enjoying married life

Currently torn between waiting until I finish FFXV before getting a Switch for Zelda, or just simply dropping everything gaming wise and picking up a Switch over the next few days.

Damn you Nintendo!

Gosh. Hope this helps them sell a bunch of switches

Mine is arriving tomorrow, with Zelda. To say I am excited would be a gross understatement. And I am 41.

whats the deal with these zelda games ? i have never played them but they seem to be well loved but watching the trailer and gameplay it looks like a rubbish childs game no blood or anything.

how would i go from the witcher 3 to this ?

Must be good.

Witcher 3 is a brilliant game, no doubt about it.

Zelda does have a nostalgic element for me as I grew up with it, but the games are always quality. I don't think one has ever been released that was not universally well recieved. Many hours of fun, mini games, boss fights, exploration, puzzles, dungeons, with enjoyable combat/gameplay on top.

They are made with a lot of heart just like witcher 3 was. I would say essential to play if you have a Nintendo.

Well this one sounds like the best but I'm still waiting for my copy (on Wii u).

For 3ds, I would say ocarina of time, thought this was originally released on N64 console back in 1998.

Although if I had a 3ds I'd also purchase this, but it's a homage to a much older Zelda game (a link to the past) so maybe not the best choice for first go at the series:

To be honest, a Nintendo Wii can be picked up for around £20 second hand, it had the benefit of backwards compatibility with GameCube games as well. So if you don't want a switch, or a Wii U, for BOTW, I would get a Wii as it has a good selection of Zelda games and a massive catalogue of other games on top.
