Yeah, I'm surprised there was no Groose. Skyward Sword did get one character fewer than Ocarina of Time and Twilight Princess, didn't it? Or am I forgetting someone? I can only think of Fi and Ghirahim.
There's a bunch of characters from games not covered that I'd love to have seen. Any combination of Nayru, Din, Farore and Ralph from the Oracles games would've been awesome. And Vaati in his Minish Cap form, changing to his Four Swords form for his super attack would've been cool. There's even more characters from the games that were covered that I wish were in. The Deku Stick weapon would've been perfect for Saria, and the Horse for Malon.
I think I would want a sequel to just focus on expanding the Zelda roster, but if they wanted to make a Metroid or whatever else Warriors as well, I'd be up for it.
Hayashi did mention that they discussed adding Groose for Legends, but Skull Kid was given priority in the end. I kind of get the feeling from him that Groose is going to be among the top newcomers for HW2, probably after the Midna and Zant of Zelda U.
I agree that a sequel should expand the Zelda roster first. What I would do if I was in charge is take a page from Warriors Orochi and go HW2 > HWX > HW3 > HW4 >HWX2, and so forth.
Is Demise in any way or form in Hyrule Legends? I'm still saddened that he wasn't an alt. skin in Smash 4 for Ganondorf, but not as much as when I saw the Fusion Suit, Dark Suit, Light Suit and the Dark Samus skin being yet again another pallete swap for Samus in an update where they revealed 8 player smash.
I always found Demise's design and arena enjoyable to look at, complementing and contrasting Ghirahim's final form fight in Skyward Sword.

I'm glad that the other Wind Waker characters didn't get de-tooned either. I was worried they would have to be if they were to make it in these games (during the time of the Wii U version's release when they weren't there at first).
The Link's Awakening set is releasing next week. It includes Marin, and the Pegasus Boots as a new weapon for Linkle. I also think that the new costumes for Agatha and Ghirahim are meant to be based off of Crazy Tracy and Richard, but I could be wrong about that.
Nester the Lark: Speaking of the song "Reincarnation," perhaps it might have sounded something like this if the game had gotten an English dub.

nocturnal YL: According to Nintendo's IR calendar, they're going to release their financial information up to December 2020 on 1 Feb. Switch sales (68.30 mil at Sep 2020) may very well surpass that of the 3DS (75.94 mil), but how will it compare to the GBA (81.51 mil)?
Jan 31, 2021 12:10:02 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: It's closer to the GBA sales than I thought. Switch hardware sales up to December 2020 is 79.87 mil, while I expected about 78 mil.
Feb 1, 2021 8:07:53 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Also, while they stopped counting 3DS and Wii U hardware sales, software went up from 385.12 mil to 385.85 mil and 103.27 mil to 103.31 mil. Switch software sales went from 456.49 mil to 532.34 mil, surpassing that of NES and Game Boy.

nocturnal YL: So now that I have a capture device, I've been looking at my games and tried to figure out the resolution and frame rate they run at. Trials Rising is 540p30, Project DIVA Mega Mix has the UI at 720p60 and the simpler, single-singer PVs run at 540p60…?
Feb 6, 2021 11:42:34 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: All the Atelier games I've seen so far (Arland 1-4) run at 1080p30, which is a bit surprising as I expected a lower resolution for Lulua. Void Terrarium and Puyo Puyo Tetris 1 and 2 all run at 1080p60. PPT1 also ran at 1080p60 on Wii U, so no surprise.
Feb 6, 2021 11:45:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ In Atelier Lulua, the system UI and even some parts with 3D models (like the synthesis screen) run at full 1080p at 60 fps. That's a huge leap from the previous two games in the series. World map runs at 30 fps though, despite not being intensive.
Feb 8, 2021 11:13:44 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Rune Factory 4 Special runs at 720p60. Fire Emblem Three Houses is a weird case; it looks like 900p30 to me, but because of the way the edge of the models are drawn, the graphics end up looking very ugly.

Nester the Lark: I've been doing the same thing I do every time I consider getting Smash Ultimate: playing Smash for Wii U. It turns out there are still plenty of people playing it online. Makes me curious about Splatoon 1.
Feb 20, 2021 10:08:42 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: The online also worked better than I remember. Maybe because there are fewer people...?
Feb 20, 2021 10:10:09 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: My skill curve in Smash Bros seems to be the opposite of other games: the more I play, the worse I get.
Feb 23, 2021 17:28:27 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: TIL I had not yet unlocked all the stages in Smash for Wii U. Just unlocked the last one today, six years after getting the game.

Nester the Lark: If you want a new perspective on your own Mario Maker levels, just wait more than three years before playing them again.
