    Honestly….looks gay AF. Are that many people still going to be playing BoTW by then?

    Agreed, looks like a boyband member designed by Tetsuya Nomura

    Let’s be fair: the outfit would look stupid on anyone.

    People will be playing BotW all throughout the gen as the userbase continues to grow.

    Does he have the stamina to tame her or will she buck him off?

    True but I think the biggest amount of players actively playing the game was around launch when the game was “hot”. There will be people who pick it up later but they will trickle in.

    Ew, even Link looks ugly with that outfit, another good confirmation that the MC’s design is awful as fuck

    Outfits like this are why Link is a permanently friendzoned virgin.

    It’s a halter top attached to a baby vest which is attached to some kind of big ugly collar.

    Yeah, I guess it’s the difference in artstyle that made it more noticeable for me.

    i haven’t even gotten mine yet, so I definitely will be.
    And if looking gay is the worst thing about it, then i’m sure it’s fine.

    Great, now I can dress like a complete idiot in TWO games.

    God I hate the character designs in Xenoblade Chronicles 2.

    You’re forgetting that this small DLC comes out before the major story DLC sometime this winter (probably Friday when the new Amiibo come out).

    Thats probably why Mario is also a friendzoned virgin.

    Yeah, I don’t give a shit, what I and everyone else wants to know, is why you can’t you get Prya’s outfit for Zelda? Come on Nintendo, sorts out your priorities ;-)

    Really? Because I think Rex is the only one that looks ridiculous. What’s worse is that the Direct didn’t show any indication that you’ll be able to change into different sets of armor like the previous titles, which means we might be stuck with that rejected Tetsuya Nomura concept!

    This and Mario Odyssey are the two reasons to own a switch. It’s fairly reasonable to assume that a large portion of people who buy the system will also buy this game within the next year or so.

    My problem is that the artstyle just doesn’t fit. It looks like the most generic anime you can get. And don’t get me wrong, I love anime artstyles, but when you compare that to Xenoblade Chronicles 1 (or even X) it looks horribly out of place.

    I know that changes in artstyle are hard to stomach, but my concerns were focused more on what seems to be missing from the previous titles, like the lack of alternative battle equipment I mentioned before.
