This game is wonderful, there's not other word for it, so impressed. Worth the wait.

You'll be amazed at how it looks exactly the same and is just as awesome on all platforms!

Tomorrow on eShop? As if I need more games right now... but I'll nab it. Been waiting patiently for this.

Played for an hour, finished two stages and explored the town a bunch. It's fun and charming.

Hmmmm, I've never been on the fence when deciding which platform to get a game on but this one is causing some stress. 3DS or WiiU???
Posted: 06/26/14, 05:00:38

What are the primary differences?
Posted: 06/26/14, 05:02:34

The Wii U version will have Miiverse support and a multiplayer mode (coming for free after launch) while the 3DS version will have a StreetPass mode.

I'm going Wii U all the way. I mean, I would have even if my 3DS wasn't currently broken, but that just seals the day.

Been playing it for the last week. I think the game gets better and better as it goes on, there's neat diversity in the levels. I think my favorite level so far is the "Hall of Heroes". It's capped off with a pretty funny nod to Kickstarter.

I have the 3DS version since I don't have a Wii U, it seems perfectly suited to portable play because the levels aren't extremely long and the checkpoint system is good. Plus the 3-D effect is pretty cool, you get some nice depth with the parallax scrolling.

That said I'll probably buy it again on Wii U some day because I bet it's awesome on the TV or Gamepad too!

Been playing for the last hour and half - this game is fantastic!

In a decision that should surprise absolutely no one, I got the 3DS version.

Credits roll. 94 deaths. 97% completion. 6:15 hours.

New Game Plus awaits.

Lo,ving, it. That music, man.

I beat the first two knights. 8% completion. Probably played for a half hour, 45 minutes?

Loving all the minor characters. Gui I think I spotted that Link's Awakening reference. if you didn't mean the fishing rod, I assume you meant the fish dance sequence?

Anyway, can't wait to play more. Wish I could make something like this.

I'd love to get this on my Wii U, but looks like i'll just have to make do with the pc version
Posted: 06/26/14, 08:43:23
That first level music, man, it's on another level (no pun intended). I just want a week off so I can play this and the other games I'm knee deep in!
Posted: 06/26/14, 09:00:44
WTF how do you all have it on Nintendo platforms already?! I'm still getting the "coming soon" thingy!
