I'm so glad they actually addressed this. 5 save slots isn't nearly enough for 4 routes.
I also hope the oversight (?) that allows S supports to be unlocked in the next playthrough (※) isn't changed. They didn't change that in the last update, which might be a case of intentionally leaving it as is for the benefit of the players. Fire Emblem has a history of knowing how players would dig deep into the games' logic.
(※) Support points can continue to raise after reaching A or A+ support for the purpose of calculating ending pairings. If Byleth continues to raise support points with a unit that they cannot reach S support with to the point that they reach 1001 points (which converts to S), the player can start a New Game+ with the opposite-gendered Byleth and simply unlock the S support with said unit. The conversation isn't shown in-game, but is unlocked in the support conversation viewer, saving much time for those aiming for 100% completion.

Jeritza has support with Byleth and Mercedes. Since I have finished Crimson Flower and only have near-endgame saves, that means I'll have to play Crimson Flower all over again just to collect his support conversations. Fun times.
He joined my team at level 35 with high skill levels across multiple weapon types. Is this his starting stats, or does it scale with the timing of him joining?
Jeritza does scale, he was level 27 at the start of the war phase when I got him. He's a really fun unit, he basically just slaughters anything in his path, even if he isn't as broken as his Death Knight persona.
I beat Crimson Flower yesterday, and I was surprised by the last map. I expected Cyril to be the weak link in the enemy formation, but he managed to be one of the toughest bosses in that entire route. Also death to Falcon Knight reinforcements. Never have I dreaded flying ponies as I have with this game.

Which difficulty? At Hard, the last map is full of surprises but manageable if I go from the center entrance and take the right path to reach Rhea. Cyril can be completely ignored by staying just outside of his range (possible with a powerful magic user who can attack at range 5).

So this new story will be independent from the main story, with nothing from the main story carried over to it. I assume this also means I won't get anything in the main story by completing this.
So there's actually no need to hold back playing the main game. Oh well.
EDIT — Nothing is mentioned regarding updates outside of the story. If they are still there (and actually not exclusive to the new story), then yes, I still want to wait. Not that it matters; I'm already quite busy with other games.

nocturnal YL: Guys, guys! I can't believe what I found in Zelda 1! The game features an Elimination Mode that for some reason not many talked about! I wonder if it's fun? (Don't actually try it.)

nocturnal YL: Hey, I can edit shoutbox posts! This is already better than Twitter!

Nester the Lark: It seems like Cadence of Hyrule should be more popular than it is. Are people put off by the rhythm aspect? Or the randomly-generated maps?
Jul 24, 2020 14:01:59 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ Might warrant its own thread, but I think mixing rhythm and other genres usually resuls in gameplay too difficult for many. I can't handle it well either, judging from my scores in Dedede's Drum Dash.

nocturnal YL: ↑ For me personally, it simply hasn't been considered. It's a download-only game (until now) from a series I'm unfamiliar with and didn't feel like trying out.
Jul 24, 2020 23:02:40 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Ironically, I did create a thread for Cadence of Hyrule, but then deleted it thinking there wouldn't be any discussion on it. Maybe I'll go ahead and make a new one.

Shrikeswind: Something to bear in mind about the shoutbox if you’re not already aware: It doesn’t show up on the mobile version of the forums. This shouldn’t be a major problem, but it can make it difficult to get into discussions for mobile visitors.
Jul 26, 2020 1:40:18 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Also the more obvious character limit issues, and the format not really being conducive to longer-term discussion. It’s useful but limited; threads definitely still have their place.

Shrikeswind: (Honestly, Proboards mobile is pretty bad in general, but...)

Nester the Lark: Not sure if this works on all devices, but you can force the desktop version of the forum by scrolling all the way to the bottom and clicking the "Desktop" link at the lower right.

Shrikeswind: I’m aware. I’m typing this from my phone. I’m just pointing out that, for people who aren’t aware or who may be casually checking in on their phone, the shoutbox won’t be visible on

Shrikeswind: Is there a Discord for NinDB, by the way? It’s very popular with them there young’ns these days, so it might help activity.
Jul 26, 2020 22:07:47 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: There is no NinDB Discord. There was a brief discussion of it a few years ago, but nothing ultimately came of it. I rarely use Discord, myself.
Jul 27, 2020 8:58:28 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Hm. Seems like it might be a good idea if activity picks up. Not to be a pessimist but I do have my doubts that'll happen though.

Shrikeswind: Okay not a Nintendo topic but I kinda need to talk about this because I just learned it and it's a thing so bleh.

Shrikeswind: You remember Disney's Hunchback of Notre Dame, right? So apparently, 5 year old me was incapable of discerning male and female in non-humans, because *apparently* there's a female gargoyle, and the goat's a boy.
