Huh, I didn't know it's releasing on 3ds

A port with minor DLC, just like all the others. A bit of a skank, in my opinion at least and the reason I have never purchased a Switch... because I own a Wii U, I already feel like I own a Switch!


But....how do you play the Wii U on the train to work?
I have a switch and Wii U but was thinking of getting this on 3ds for the 3d.

This duplicate screen is very off-putting... even if they’d had just a pause button and a logo it’d be nicer.

ill have to try the demo to see if I’ll go ahead or not.

good price though thanks!
Don't forget, the Wii U version had some touch screen implementation. So the image is doubled on the 3DS so the top screen can benefit from 3D visuals (it's been confirmed to be in 3D), whilst the bottom can function for touch screen actions.

It's a port of the Wii U game, so if you've already got that and aren't fussed about playing it on the go, then it's probably not worth it for you. But to decide to not buy it because the action is repeated on a second screen (as it was on the Wii U) seems a bit odd to me.

Except there are loads more people with a 3DS than a Wii U which is basically who this is aimed at. Your complaints are a bit misleading - normally when people hear 'lazy port' they think poor optimisation and doesn't run well, but you're actually just upset that there are no added bells and whistles to a game you already own.

No, its a lazy port - they couldnt be bothered to optomise the 3DS bottom …No, its a lazy port - they couldnt be bothered to optomise the 3DS bottom screen. They left it ‘as is’, a literal straight port with minimal new content.Its shovelware.


But the bottom screen is optimised, albeit not to any great extent...

Even in the video you posted the bottom screen isn't EXACTLY the same as the top, as it shows number of lives, coins, number of diaminds collected, and info text. Whereas the top screen does not.

This alone shows that the bottom screen isn't just a straight duplicate of the top.

You do realise that this was never intended to be a sequel, and Nintendo never claimed it to be, right?

The whole point of this port (and the Switch version) is to give what is a great game the opportunity to reach a larger audience.

I agree with you that if you own or have played the Wii U version, there isn't gonna be a lot here for you, but that doesn't really make it a 'lazy port'.
Ok, I downloaded the Switch and 3ds demo and it’s way more beautiful on switch.

The stereoscopic 3d didn’t add as much depth as I’d hoped for a game like this and the analogue stick of the switch makes it easier to see on top of things (on 3ds youre more likely to use L and R to rotate the camera than use the nub).
