I A-ranked every mission on Wii U. I A-ranked every mission on 3DS. Didn't get all the medals because I didn't streetpass for rental skills and that killed my drive for em. Now I'm finishing Cucco's Fury on Switch before diving back into the maps.

Now I have a time limit. Oof.

the switch version's requirements for A-ranks are outrageously generous, to the point where they might as well not exist at all

and thank god for that, many of the hero map nodes in the Wii U version had health reqs so strict they'd dock you if a single stalchild kicked you in the shin

Specifically, the Switch version changed it so that the damage requirements are based on a percentage of your total health lost, rather than absolute damage taken, so getting heart containers and leveling up makes it easier to do well.

Yeah, in the original a bunch of the A ranks were capped at 5 hearts lost total. In 3DS and Definitive they were massively expanded and I think even the strictest one in Definitive is 80% damage taken. Which is 24 hearts if you have all of them on a character.

In return though, KO requirements were jacked up. They were a flat 1200 for A rank in all maps on WiiU and range from 1000-1800 depending on map and rank in Definitive.

For time 15 minutes has always been the A rank cut off for everything iirc.

Yeah, I think that's why I can see something like Mario Warriors being an easy win.

There's already a roster of playable characters (Mario's gang, Bowsers Gang, Warios gang, etc) and a variety of enemies from goombas to hammer bros as well as a number of bosses that could be hand picked from any of the games.

Nintendo could even churn out DLC. You could have a Donkey Kong one, super Mario Land ones, Wario Land, super Mario Galaxy.

Even stuff like unlockable skins, moves and weapons. It's kinda all there really.

Just do a Super Smash Bros Warriors.

Just started playing this and I'm almost done with Legend Mode. I've dipped into Adventure when I just want a quicker session and have a question about searching.

I don't remember where any of these secrets in Zelda 1 are. If I use a card on something that isn't a secret does it waste it? Are the cards going to be plentiful or is wasting one a pain?

Just look up a guide. Cards aren't a limited resource but you don't want to be grinding cards because you're trying to guess where the secret is when they are the least important thing to farm for on the maps.

The switch version lets you buy cards so wasting them isnít a big deal. Just use a compass to highlight the right spot first and itís normally pretty obvious what item you need to use.

It doesn't really seem like a musou in the same sense as HW1, more like a linear combat focused prequel to BOTW.

Its super Musou. We still have keeps, break gauges, hordes of enemies, captains etc.

One of Link's new moves is a shield surf and he's got a lot of bow attacks which look fun.

Impa's looks badass as well. Can't wait for this. I mean, I knew I was probably going to get it, but watching Link defeat captains with loads of explosives sealed the deal.

The gameplay pausing while the player cycled through the runes is what the last game needed to make the subweapons useful.

On WiiU when playing with the WiiU tablet, you could actually reach over and swipe left or right on the screen to change subweapon, and it was really useful! Sadly, they didn't keep this for the switch version when playing in handheld mode.

So we got a new trailer that confirms Robbie and Purah which brings us up to 9or 10 characters depending on if the mini-Guardian is one or not.

They've almost definitely still got a few left to reveal too. I'm betting the King is one of them even if he's locked to the adventure mode equivalent, seems a waste not to use that model and all the unique animations we've seen.

Yeah, the 6th one is just Revali's slot. Adding Robbie and Purah and we're up to at least 9 out of that; it's also possible that not every slot will be filled at launch and it was made like that to obfuscate the final count.

Was the original game's UI set up with enough slots for all the existing characters (pre-dlc)? Part of me thinks thats more of a layout/future-proofing thing then evidence of 24 characters.

I didn't watch the stream - was there anything about secondary modes like HW1's adventure mode?

mastajake

The original game had the ui rearrange when you got new characters, I believe, instead of showing them all off at first. To your question, yes and no. Most of what we saw was not exactly the traditional story mode, unless it is just more free form in this game. Their were side quests and training challenges shown off.

We got more Link gameplay, this time with a two-handed weapon, and his special (or focus spirit, couldnít figure out which) was eating food and then going to town on the enemies. He was in a training against soldiers and then a boss fight against Daryl.

Urbosa gameplay was what you would likely expect. Lots of fighting with the scimitar with lightning thrown in. Her mission was likely actual story mode and involved fighting off lots of Yiga.

Zelda gameplay involved using the runes almost like how her Dominion Rod worked in HW.

It seems like one of the shoulder buttons (couldnít make out which one on my phone) is gonna be a special ďTraitĒ button that does different things for each character/moveset. For Linkís two-handed moveset you can press it instead of the Strong Attack button in your combo to power up your attacks in exchange for dealing temporary damage to yourself. It looked like Link can heal off the temp. damage by pressing the Trait button by itself to eat food or by doing a Special Attack (which has him eating food as part of the animation)

FPzero

I figured that was just his "no combo Special Attack" button press, like in HW1 where pressing Special outside of a combo was usually some unique attack or buff related to the character's moveset.

It was actually unclear what button was being pressed to eat food, it might have been just the strong attack button. But pressing the trait button where you would normally press the strong attack button was definitely a thing they mentioned

You can see prompts on screen for both of these in the treehouse video.

"Press Zr in place of a strong attack for a sacrifice strong attack"
"Heal temporary damage with a meal: X"
