Nice preview! Cannot wait to dive in this beautiful world, listen to the fantastic music, follow the great story, and engage with the deep strategic battles!

Monolith Soft deserves all the praise it can get. On the technical side for instance, while other Nintendo franchises with much higher sales projection have been delivering subpar projects in relation to the switch capabilities (cough cough, pokemon, cough), Monolith Soft, even with smaller resources and sales projection, manages to make games that greatly surpasses other switch titles, and overshadows other JRPGs (that became hallways fests rather than delivering beautiful worlds to explore, right FF7R?). With Xenoblade 3 they took the switch to its absolute limits, in between the scale and detail of the world, detailed character models and monster (considerably more monster variety than Zelda BOTW), up to seven characters in real time plus all enemies and tons of particles and yet running great (Zelda on the other hand had the infamous Kakariko village, lost woods, or lauching an enemy after freezing, really). And apparently, they found the same good balance between visuals and battery duration for portable mode as Dragon Quest 11S did. Battery life is super important when undocked, we can ask the steamdeck and its super short 2 hours life about that hehe. But yeah, more than that and it would not be a switch game anymore, and I doubt Zelda BOTW 2 will surpass this level of ambition unless a new switch model arrives.

As for complexity and tutorials, I think it is a smart decision they did to teach bit by bit because soon enough the complexity is going to grow exponentially!! That is why it is better to add mechanics bit by bit like they do, otherwise it could scare a few . But the options menu has features to allow skip notification and customize many other things, I heard, including elements of the HUD. They really have the best combat system of modern JRPGs, a perfect blend of action and turn based.
