    Sweet Black Jesus!

  • Santoryu02

    The first thing i checked as soon as the direct ended. Thanks

  • About what I expected for the price. Pretty fair since we get a full artbook and some music. (Plus the metal case.)

    I’ll pre-order it~.

    • NeptuniasBeard

      It does look pretty neat. I’m still a bit iffy on the art style and the (European) VAs, but the game itself looks dope enough. And so huge!

      • Yeah, same. I’m letting it slide because I do like some of the characters (heh, those Nomura ones I like more; which he’d designed everyone), but it’s such an amazing and breath-taking looking game~.

        • NeptuniasBeard

          Nomura designed the bad guys right?

          Yeah, wish he’d be the one that at least designed Pyra and Rex lol.

          I’m gonna try to get the SE. Hopefully they’re still up by the time I get paid tomorrow. Any other games from the direct grab your eye?

          • Yup~. The Torna. (They look so dang sexy, too.)
            Oh man, I really wish. Maybe after this, they’ll bring him on and avoid a situation like this.

            I hope I get money in time too~.

            Always Kirby, Style Savvy of course and Octopath. I’ll probably get DQ Builders and I’m even considering Wolfenstein 2.

            What about you~?

          • NeptuniasBeard

            I wanna get Wolfenstein if it has couch co-op. Same reason I’ll be picking up Kirby. Odyssey of course looks wonderful. And I’m really liking the look of Octopath.

            Crazy that in less than a year I’m already going to fill up all the slots in my Zelda game case lol. It’s been a crazy good year with just the Switch alone imo

          • Oh, that’s wise. I’m gonna wait and see if it does then. Good point with kirby! I’mma get it because I’m a fangirl, but it’ll be fun to play with others. And same on Odyssey and Octopath, of course~.

            Haha, that’s amazing, isn’t it! I’m glad SD cards are going to be released too, because there’s a number of good e-shop games.

          • NeptuniasBeard

            Did you try the Octopath demo? If so, how’d you feel about it. Good presumably, since you said you plan to get it, but any parts that stood out.

            If it wasn’t for Best Buy’s discount, I’d fully embrace the digital age. But there are alo a lot of indies and smaller titles that are also looking interesting, true. If only there were more hours in the daaay >_<

          • I only played as Primrose so far, and looking forward to trying Olberic. I really enjoyed it! The writing for Primrose was very remicisent of Yasumi Matsuno’s writing, and it felt really good. Surprised at the quality of the localization too.

            I adore the graphics and art direction, though I hope Asano gets to work on another Switch project that has a more painted style. But they did some really amazing things with the graphics in the game as far as lighting and other effects go. The music is also superb, and I enjoyed the gameplay.

            And. . . well. Olberic’s voice was pretty sexy in the JP version, so I hope there’s dual audio. x’D;

            Shoot, same here. Well, I love physical and LEs, but I would go digital way more often if not for discounts like that. I know! Agh, we deserve more free time, and the energy to put to gaming during that free time! ^o^

          • NeptuniasBeard

            I went Olberic myself. Love how he can challenge almost everybody in the village(you shouldn’t btw, that bar maid is OP) and his story seems like it’ll be rather interesting. I gotta stick with my English VA though since I love P Seitz.

            I always said I’d wish for a personal hyperbolic time chamber if I could. So I could go through most of my backlog in a couple hours lol

          • Lol, my husband just got done fighting her. He actually won! I’m scared to try though, lol. I really like the writing so far, makes me excited to try the other characters too.

            Oh my gods, that sounds like the best idea ever. x’D

          • NeptuniasBeard

            I like the writing too. I’m totally behind this dude’s story already. Haven’t gotten to Primrose yet, but I’m excited

          • Gemmol Lewis

            I agree with the other guy, I got both zelda and mario kart at discount, but sold them later to get them digital it was worth it, no more having to take the game card out, less boxes, and when you ready to play all your games on the screen looking back at you and you can switch games with ease, loved the discount, but love seeing all the games on the screen a lot more, and way more convenient

          • NeptuniasBeard

            True. Might be worth it to bite the bullet if only for the sake of long term convenience. At least for games I only play multiplayer

    • NintendoPSXTheSecond

      It’s called BestBuy Gamers Club. lol
      Makes it $79.99

      • I’m considering that, but I’m considering the trade-in credit I have at Gamestop.

        • NintendoPSXTheSecond

          I mean nothing’s stopping you from using both services!

          • True, I just need to buy the Best Buy one~. I will eventually. ^u^

  • Aiddon

    I’ll wait for Amazon

  • Drewsefer89

    This special edition looks amazing. That’s some good stuff you get. Though I was hoping on a $80 price point. I can get the game on Amazon Prime for $47.99 So that means I’m paying double for the Special edition. But it’s so tempting.

  • Tjnswitch

    I just don’t like the characters art-style this time around, but i’ glad others will enjoy it !

    • R.Z.

      I’m not really sure anybody actually does though …
      But yhe game looks too amazing to pass for such a triffle.

  • Vinicius

    I need that artbook.

  • TruExtent

    And now I’ve cancelled my old pre order for this. Best Buy, thanks for the 20% off. Nintendo, HAVE MERCY ON MY WALLET!!!

  • Kenshin0011

    Just ordered, and for store pick up on release day!

    It only cost $79.99 with the Best Buy Gamer’s Club discount!

    • NintendoPSXTheSecond

      BestBuy’s account system is so broken and I love it! I really hope more people join it so BB doesn’t shut it down thinking it’s a waste of money/resources.

      • RoadyMike

        I wise ones, how does one exploit said system for bangn discounts? Just make an account or..?

        • NintendoPSXTheSecond

          It’s a subscription system. $30 for TWO YEARS and 20% off NEW games including special editions and amiibo’s.

  • Fandangle

    What a ridiculous Price. the Div:OS2 was pretty much the same but it came with 2 different 100 page books and a statue as well as other trinkets. Why so greedy?
