I really enjoyed the original, and am really joyed to see it resurrected on the Switch.

(The Switch has become quite a lovely place for collecting Zelda-like games, hasn’t it?)

I've this on the Gamecube. May double-dip when it's dirt cheap at a later date on Switch. It's $15 on Steam, but Switch owners have to pay double that, $30 for the same privilege. And it's been under $10 during sales on Steam. They've had a great master in the inflation price market, I think everyone has. It's a very good game, probably somewhere around an 8/10.

The Switch version is actually going to be released physically so I can understand upping the price from $15 to $30 for a physical release due to the cost of producing the boxes and carts . Though I'll grant digitally it probably should have been $20 at the very least.
