    Well damn it, I had to jump to preorder DKC:TF Switch after last week’s post, and now I’m gonna have to preorder HW Switch too. My kids have played the Wii U version extensively and the 3DS version a bit. I love the Zelda franchise but wasn’t particularly interested in this game because I didn’t understand the genre or pay attention to the quiet centering of Zelda and the other female characters. Thanks so much for this analysis; as with the rest of the series, it has been engrossing and illuminating.
