Got mine cancelled as well, but I noticed it was back in stock. So I reordered... No idea what's going on.


When did it go back in stock on Amazon Es?

I noticed it at the time I got my cancellation email, as I went and checked my orders on the website. Just before my reply here. Seems to be gone now.

Are you asking about Xenoblade specifically? Pretty sure the UK version is in english since thats their main language also. I also don't think Xenoblade DE will have any dlcs since its the definitive edition lol. Otherwise I think you have to match the dlc region with the region of the cartridge.

oh im saying in general. if i buy a japanese game like lets say Smash Bros, can i buy DLC from the NA eshop for it?

Nintendo's website says no, the DLC and game have to be from the same region. 

 

You can change the region of the eShop, but before you do, you have to use up your entire balance. Sounds like a lot of work...

What makes you say it's a shit port? Most of the video comparisons I've seen make it look like a pretty good upgrade... outside of the generic anime character makeover all the characters got.

Horrible resolution docked and undocked; looking to be a rushed cash grab again.

So the resolution is the same as XC2, I’m fine with that

I don't play my Switch for top tier graphics.  Keep the jrpgs and good games comin'!  I really like what Nintendo has been doing this generation, and all of their efforts that were previously handheld-only are now playable on the big screen.

I don't really have an issue with that, pretty standard for NS games. I mean, the original game ran at 480p, this version has improved textures (and possibly higher poly count?) so the resolution doesn't bother me. I just hope it can hold a steady 30 fps... the original held a steady 30 fps I think but pretty sure XC2 had a lot of slowdown issues.

It also has a new epilogue, and not just an expected 1-3 hours, but 10-20. Hardly a simple rushed port.

The acceptance of mediocrity x.x because it's nintendo; i'll still get it, but it's ridiculous that it's 2020 and devs dont strive for improving quality.  $60 is ridiculous

It's not just a simple upscale. It's obviously reworked.

It's ridiculous how hardware limitation is a factor on what you can achieve and output. Common sense is ridiculous

I think it's even more ridiculous how some are scrambling on here to spend up to $120(!!!) for a port with a vinyl and art book. Now that's insane. I've recently started getting into collecting and collecting CE's, but only when they're clearanced. Spending $120 on one game, especially a port, is absurd.

LOLOL yep ok.

 

It's not a hardware limitation, it's a bad engine the developers refuse to move away from.

Don't get me wrong, it is improved, but hitting under 720p in this day and age is sad; anyone saying otherwise is stunted by their love for a developer/publisher that refuses to get with the times.

I'll get it because it's a really good game that I'd like to revisit on handheld.  Thankfully I skipped the 3ds release.

Presently having trouble deciding between a $50 SE or the $89 US Works edition.  I know it's a frustratingly inferior CE. I just couldn't pull the trigger on $117 (uk store) out of my bank account when I have us amz credit to burn.

I mean, while I get it, you're being way too harsh here. Let's say it's $40 for a remaster, like it typically is. Then add $5-10 surcharge for being on an expensive cart. Then add $15-20 for epilogue DLC. That... ends up being $60+.

 

And I get most multiplatforms on other systems, sure. Even simple stuff like Children of Morta and Enter the Gungeon run much better on PS4. But there's not really a choice here, is there?

 

FWIW, I didn't play it on the Wii (didn't like how it looked, or how it ran), and didn't play it on the 3DS (similar reasons). But this one at least looks playable, and looks much better.

The Nintendo Switch hardware does play a role in what you can achieve. If hardware doesn't play a role then why does the PS4 version of the Witcher runs at 1080p but the Switch does not, even though they are using the same game engine? Did the developers just got lazy for the Switch port too?

Nintendo hardware always runs behind everything else in power compared to the generation its released against. Developers will never get it to run as optimal as on other systems with ocassional exceptions.

The bigger question for FissFiss is, why does it bother you so much that other people enjoy having a Xenoblade Chronicles Remake or wanting the CE for it, they're not spending your money to get it.

Oh man, I remember that game... that and Pandora's Tower. Xenoblade got a lot of love but those other two games were solid. I remember trying to get Last Story to run on Dolphin for the visual upgrade. Though it ran worse, it was nice have the sharp visuals.

It's the reason I hacked my Wii. My launch Wii's disc drive combined to make it run at like 8 fps on some fights. Ripping it to USB and running it off that got me to double digit frame rates at least.

Man the last story was an awesome game, Pandora’s tower too! Although Xenoblade topped it for me, it’s personally one of my favorite JRPGs of all time
