I'll never forget having to come back from a vacation in NYC the day before the Mario Kart 8 CE was released at that store...I rated so hard about that. I think they just hate Americans. No other reason they wouldn't sell the best stuff only to the US.

Yeah, stuff like this is complete and utter BS, but it's how they operate now, and why I don't support them as much as I once did. There's just to many great games, at great prices, across many great systems to sit around and beg for scraps from a company who has shown time and time again, they could care less what a fan or even an average consumer would like.

But why aren’t we offered the collector? Japanese are much higher standard than we have for sure, which is why i mentioned we no longer see the Nintendo seal of approval in the US.....

Anyway, i was reassured to just enjoy the LIMITED DREAMER, not the European/Japanese Collector.....or whichever the correct term is lol

Thanks for your replies

I... didn't even know this was a thing. And all of you are complaining about the wrong thing. Link's Awakening came out BEFORE I WAS BORN at a modest price of $30. Now they're remaking it completely but putting it up on the Switch for $60. This should be illegal. I'm not paying more than $20 for this thing once its Nintendo Selects version is released.

Inflation since 1993 makes that $30 the equivalent of $52-75 in 2019 depending on what city in which you live.  The game is completely remade plus has some added content.  Sounds like it tracks pretty well.  Basic economics should be illegal?

 

Wait until you can pay what you think it is worth to you, but your logic is flawed on the math.

I mean, Nintendo Selects are priced at $19.99 sooo...sorry what was your point again?

I can't see to be able to get the Dreamer Edition. I do want to get it from BB so I guess I missed it again.

To be honest I’m on the fence
I have the target dreamer pre order at $70 total
I have the preorder from GCU vanilla at $48
And someone said It’s gonna be $20 in a few months

This whole thread turned my head upside down with Nintendo

If I cancel target I’ll let someone know and sell it for what I got it for plus shipping to you of course

Arms has never been $20 and that game failed here

Maybe not $20, but maybe $50 around Black Friday, well after BF hopefully. I still have GCU until Sept 2020 so can't wait for that BB buy one get 50% off on Nintendo games.

Probably accurate.  If you are balking at $60, your best deal is going to wait for BF for $10 off or a B1G1 50% off type deal around the holidays.

 

But, the thing here is this is all based on the assumption that the game will basically be the GB version.  That is not a terrible assumption, as early demos have shown very similar areas that are in many ways identical to earlier layouts.  But, I believe that Nintendo will add length to the story to make it a console length adventure.

 

And we do know it will also have that Zelda Dungeon Maker style mode to add some bulk to the purchase.

 

Thinking this will drop to $20 is just delusional.  Nintendo isn't Ubisoft, they keep the base price of their headlines games up high for a long time.  They aren't fond of their titles getting tossed in the bargain bin merely from a brand protection standpoint.

It was already a console worthy adventure. People try to underestimate this game because it was on gameboy but i assure you and those who haven't played it it's worth it

Well yeah.  Don't have to convince me, had Dreamer pre-ordered since it was announced.

Even if it's short it'll still not be 20 bucks unless they make it a greatest hits version several years from now.

Kirby was short af and you're not gonna find that for 20 bucks.

I don't think the length will be an issue but I do wonder how people will react to a traditional Zelda after BotW, especially those who've never played/didn't care for traditional Zeldas. I enjoyed BotW but didn't like it as much as most people so I'm elated for a traditional Zelda, but I also know I'm in the minority and most people put BotW on their best of the best lists. 

 

My biggest concern is if it'll retain the same 'feeling' of the GB game... most everything I've seen suggests Nintendo's making that a focus so I'm not worried. Can't wait!:D

Yeah, BotW is just a completely different beast, as I don't even place that game along side any of the past 3D games either. I've liked most of the Zelda series, with BotW being the only game I flat out didn't care for, or even consider it much of a Zelda title for that matter. I guess there may be new fans who only have experience with BotW, and they may be put off of Awakening, so they may have found the game better suited to them(or may like both).

 

This was a Zelda game thinking outside of the box at the time, but was very much still an amazing Zelda game. Now with the graphics upgrade, the charm and life of the original game just seems to come through all the more. And yes, this game was a little short side, but I'll take a game with charm, heart and feeling that's short, than a HUGE open world that felt(at lest to me), void of any substance, heart or feelings that I associate with a Zelda game.

You guys are dumb and drunk. I already mentioned Nintendo Selects in my post. Is this game going to be $20 on BF? Hell no. Will it be $20 on BF 3 years from now? No. Will it eventually get a Nintendo Selects and be $20? Survey says... YES! I've beaten Link's Awakening DX more times than I can count. I can wait years and years for this to drop to $20.

I think if they had remade the oracle games and included it in the same package that the AAA price tag would be more palatable.

Agreed, but this is "N", so that was NEVER going to happen! But I do hope they get the remake love down the line, as those 2 games kick ass just like Awakening does. All three games are in my top 5 Zelda titles, and these 2D games are the only ones I ever replay(along with LttP of course).

I wonder if they could even remake those games without Capcom's involvement... I would think they could, seeing as how Nintendo is the publisher and Capcom just developed it so I would assume Nintendo owns all rights to the game. 

 

I would say that there's a good chance they remake it and they could probably carry over many of the same resources from the Link's Awakening remake to the Oracle games. Not sure how they'd handle the "dual game" aspect of it but would wager they'd release two separate games (which works fine for the Pokemon games). As much as I think Nintendo milks many of their new games with nostalgia, I can't say I mind these remakes which modernize the gameplay mechanics but I'll never understand the changes to the Water Temple, my brother and I both beat the game within a week of launch without any issue (and we had no idea people considered the Water Temple hard for years.

Yeah, "N" just subbed out the work to Crapcom, so if they ever wanted to do something, they don't need their say, just their own. I think if they ever did offer the Oracle games, they could maybe offer both games on one cart, as here it would make sense. As both games are different parts of a larger story, so why not have both offered together?

 

Originally these games where supposed to be three, and not just two, but they had problems having a link system for all three, so one was cut. I always wondered how far along the 3rd game got, as that would be something cool to possible see some concept art or storyboards for at some point. But they may have took the best parts and added them to the two games that where offered, but not much info was ever given, at least that I remember.

I'm hoping that they at least bundle the two Oracle games together when they eventually release it. They may choose to go the Pokemon route and individually release them for $60 each, though. I'm raising holy hell if that happens.

Does the dreamer edition of the game have the same case and UPC as the retail game?

 

Or does the UPC section of the game say not for resale?

 

Thanks

The back of the case doesn't have anything. It's just a brown background with a symbol of some sorts (don't have the case with me). The bigger cardboard box has the actual layout of what I would assume are the regular versions of the game.
