Jesus, the puzzles in the new Zelda remind me of Portal.

I was thinking the same thing! & I love Portal, so I've quite enjoyed them. This game is damn near perfect, barring some of the difficulty.

The GameCube had three Zelda games, didn't it?

I reckon it'll be freakier than the huge Bot that just comes out of nowhere from the ceiling of the Great Palace in Zelda II.

Jesus, see me through this.

It's the Switch. I'd have to expect that.

Oh god, I found one, attempted to fight, and got my ass handed to me. Those assholes even teleport great distances just to kick your ass. I got up a mountain to escape and just as I jumped off to paraglide away I see him just teleport there to get me after everything seemed fine.

Those were actually the only ones I had in mind, since they didn't exist on preceding consoles first. The latter is kind of a special case since it was being developed for the GameCube first, but then ended up coming out on the Wii first, and then on GameCube just a month later.

I wonder why it came out after the Wii version.

Nintendo purposely delayed it on Gamecube so the Wii version would sell better. I'm surprised they didn't do the same with the Wii-U version of Breath of the Wild compared to the Switch version.

I bought it on Wii-U, I'm not getting a Switch till probably November when Mario comes out.

Ocarina of Time's master quest came in as a bundle together with Wind Waker... at least the Ocarina port + master quest version I own was like that. Isn't the master question basically the same game but with mirrored dungeons instead, anyway?

Master Quest changed the puzzles inside all the dungeons in Ocarina of Time, and the 3DS version is also mirrored.

The puzzles aren't as good as the original puzzles, but it's fun to play as an alternate take on the game. It's almost like 1999-era DLC, given it was originally planned for the 64DD in Japan.

A shame the DD add-on was Japan only. I was really interested in the F-Zero X tracks added in particular. Just like sadly the SNES Satellaview was not released outside of Japan and I've always wanted to try ou F-Zero 2.

I wish Nintendo would put stuff like that on the Virtual console, there's no reason they can't release them now. It's absurd they don't.

A shame Star Fox 2 also wasn't released. the game was pretty much complete and there's even Roms of it online I believe.

They also remade Zelda 1 with SNES graphics and they never properly released that either. Which I also find extremely bizarre, they could have released it back in the GBA era or put it on the virtual console or as an unlockable in a main 3D Zelda or something.

I'd at least want some game released here with the two new characters from Star Fox 2 in it.

Wait, seriously? First time I hear of this.

I don't hold it against them for not releasing Japanese Super Mario Bros 2. overseas back in the day, though. There were hard enough NES games already.

When it comes to Nintendo games I feel dirty emulating them. Mario and Zelda games in particular.

It's a weird contradiction but I can't help but feel that way.

Came out on that BS sattelight thing originally.

Zelda 1 got the "Super Mario All-Stars" treatment, just like Metroid 1 was remade as Zero Mission on GBA, and Kirby NES was remade in Nightmare in Dreamland on GBA, and Punchout NES had a sorta remake/reboot with Punchout Wii.

In fact Nintendo practically remade all their big NES games on later consoles.

Well, back in the day it'd have been cool but I can live without ever playing that SNES remake of Zelda 1. Unless it has differences other than a graphical update.

What about the GB Zelda games. Have they ever been remade? Link'a Awakening got a DX version for the GBC, but what about the Oracles? I've played a bit of Link's Awakening(own it on the 3DS VC) and it's an interesting game. Doesn't feel like your typical Zelda. It's kinda odd/funny it has chain chomp and goombas in it, though.
