    That was expected. They needed Zelda to push the NS. I wonder if they will release the Wii U version on the same date.

    Jeez, glad to see the game not launching ten months after the Switch. Hopefully it won’t be buggy at launch. Really looking forward to this one

    …Aaand it’s not region-locked, so folks don’t necessarily have to put up with the English dub!

    Let’s hope.

    Also let’s hope that there isn’t some bullshit backlash that will somehow make them reconsider that scene, and pissing off more people in the process.

    If they’re not, then at least we have the option to import the Japanese version WITHOUT also importing a Japanese Switch. Region free all up in this bitch, welcome to 2013 Ninty.

    Give me 2 more decent games on launch and I’ll buy it day 1.

    Otherwise, I’ll wait until Super Mario Odyssey.

    With this game lineup for launch, Nintendo wins 2017 easily.

    Went back to trailer, and noticed it was a towel, but damn, Zelda has a cute backside.

    HYPED

    Could do without the voice acting though.

    The censorship usually comes from NoA, this game is made in japan, and I wouldn’t be surprised if the westren release has “changes”.

    After hearing both the English and Japanese voice acting, I have to now wonder if they’ll give us an option to choose which language you want. In my opinion, the usual anime like overacting of the Japanese version was just far better.

    And yeah I know it’s region free now so I could just buy the Japanese version if I REALLY cared about it, but having English subtitles to help clarify anything I don’t get or miss would be ideal.
