I prefer the Japanese box art over what the US is getting. Hopefully you get to choose between using the wii remote or the pro remote.

Says right there that it also comes with the soundtrack CD so I'll be pleased to get this edition. As for the amiibo I'll just sell it off on eBay.

So do I too prefer the Japanese/original remix cover so maybe the European release will have a reversible cover as it has happened in the past.

As for the controls, you are aware TPHD is based on GameCube, right? So perhaps the Wiimote might not be usable or it will, depends entirely on Nintendo on how many controllers they want to support.

Yeah, I know that its based on the GameCube version but the wii version used the wii remote/chuck for it. Maybe it will work, maybe it won't, we'll see. Maybe they'll do what they did for Smash Bros and put out a GambeCube remote for it.

There's absolutely no reason why it should be. Just to make a game to be played on GamePad without an actual good reason is like Sniper Elite V2 on Wii U.

My only complain against TPHD is the lack of fur that Wolf Link lacks but if they fix that then the rest is totally fine.

Over at Canada Amazon's charging CND$100 for anyone pre-ordering and converting that to USD it's 15 more than the original RRP.

UK users luckily pay 42-45 so just a couple more than $60.

Bestbuy.ca has it at the expected $79.99 Canadian. Not great considering it's a remaster but not horrible either.

Wiimote + Nunchuk could work despite not being the mirrored version.

That's Amiibos for ya.

In fact McDonald's had a good chunk of Nintendo figures and you know what? They looked great, and I'll dare to say they were as good as their Amiibo counterparts. Which is something Nintendo/Amiibo fans refuse to admit. The only difference is that they don't have any NFC content.

Really looking forward to this! I've only played the Wii version a handful of times, so I'm excited to revisit it, with better graphics!

The Amiibo looks amazing too! It'll go great with my Smash Amiibos of Link, Zelda, Sheik, Ganondorf, and Toon Link. Too bad the US isn't getting the soundtrack too.

Bestbuy just raised the price to $99.99.

Unacceptable price gouging. All other $60 USD games sell anywhere from $65-$75 here.

On the Nintendo Direct of America they said that the Soundtrack CD is included so at least it'll come with the pre-orders of the Limited Edition.

Europe and Japan are getting all in their Limited Edition whether that's pre-order or not as it states on the box itself, but they may change later down the line to save on paper, artwork and CD copies.
