Why not sign up for a (free) account and create your own content?

I'm fairly certain they are.


This was on the Japanese version, but there's no reason why it wouldn't hit in NA and here.

I'd be all over this on my 3DS . I don't know why, it seems like just the thing to occupy my commute.

Freedom Planet is on sale for $10.49 ( from $15) in the Winter Warm-Up Sale. Highly recommended!

I suppose it is. But I wanted the shiny Advance version.

Which I guess I technically don't have on WiiU either. But I still want it on my 3DS instead.

Surely you of all people understand that .

Oh yes, I understand.

I'll probably grab Super Mario Advance 4 since it has the e-Reader levels, including the Japan-only ones. It totals 38 levels, not a bad price for levels that would be new to me.

For anyone considering Zack and Wiki, keep in mind that it's cheaper to track down the original disc. For example, GameStop sells it for $2.99... if you can find a copy.

@Mop it up

$2.99? That's tragic.

How could they possibly sell it for 2.99? Wow.

I know… that's way too much.

That poor husky was in the middle of yawning or something and now he's all over the internet!

It's cool that they included the e-Reader levels in SMB3. Those were a freaking nightmare to unlock with the actual hardware.

Did they also mimic the power-up scanning functionality?

Poor husky?! He's probably a millionaire by now!

@Anand Nope, no power-up cards or other cards. Just the levels.

@DrFinkelstein Yeah, now I feel like a real chump for buying it for $6.99 a few years back.
