Link's Awakening is up on the 3DS store for $5.99 now

#1 Posted by LordXavierBritish (6320 posts) -

You can download it now, I am downloading it as I type this.
 
Also it is DX, not just Link's Awakening.
 
The only bad part if you have to pay $10 because you can only add funds in five dollar increments so I guess I'm getting some fucking Notebooks or something too.

Is there an option to just run normal Link's Awakening (on the off chance that I'm not the only one who'd want to have that option)? Also 5.99? Seems kinda high.....

Are you going to get the red tunic? Everyone gets the red tunic.

Yeah it sucks pretty badly that you have to add in set increments. Clearly that's just a plan to leave you with left over credit you can't even use. Also, I know this isn't the right place to ask, but that coop Zelda DSi Ware game (I did hear that announcement right?), what was it called? And will it be on the 3DS technically, seeing as the 3DS has most of the DSiWare store on it, as far as I can tell? 
 
Thanks for any responses.

It's not going up in Europe until tomorrow and we have to pay £5.49 (almost $10 US) Talk about poor price conversion...

Pretty angry at Nintendo continuing to screw over Europe (and Australia) and their absolute shambles of an online service.

Oh nostalgia, I wish I had a 3DS now.

It's a port of Four Swords and I'm almost 100% it is coming to 3DS as well.

@LordXavierBritish: Ah okay thank you.

Went up on the UK eShop this morning. £5.40. Seems pretty expensive on one hand, but on the other hand - IT'S FUCKING AMAZING.

Pretty happy to have bought Tetris and Link's Awakening for £9.90, meaning I didn't have to break into another £10 top-up.

Meh, my SP still works just fine.

Hey whoever gets this can they confirm if the fun glitches are still there like screen warp and alternate worlds, etc.?

Nope. It's a rom of the DX version so, just like the original cart, it doesn't have the screen warp glitch.

Is it in three dimensions?

nope, its a virtual console release. only the 3D classics range will have that option.

I think it's a great game, but kinda a lot of money, I don't know. I got Mario Land, fucking love that.

@Elazul: Oh ok no screen warp but does it have the kennel world glitch

I haven't tried it yet but I don't see why not. I'm right in the middle of the third dungeon but as soon as I'm done I'll confirm it for you.

Yup, confirmed.

It is 2011. I find it astonishing that Nintendo won't or can't allow the system to remember credit card information. It has to be a hassle every time

#22 Posted by Jolt92 (1543 posts) -

@Dany: I'd rather have it that way than getting my shit stolen. And it's not like you're buying stuff there everyday or something. It's just a couple of numbers you have to type in, no big deal.

Well, with all this hacking going around it may actually be a good thing.

It's 2011 and I've been getting weekly emails from game companies telling me that my personal information may have been obtained by hackers. While I have no problem that they don't remember my credit card it is a little annoying that I have to enter a birthdate every time I enter the eshop.
