Did anybody receive the advertisement for this game on their Wii U systems? I certainly did, and I decided to take the plunge. I haven't played a Mario vs. DK "Minis" game since the very first (not counting the original Mario vs. DK) since the theme never really appealed to me. For whatever reason though, I grabbed this and it happens to be one fun piece of entertainment!
I tried the Wii U version first, then tried out the 3DS version. Aside from one of the levels in the first world starting slightly differently, the games are identical (minus the resolution of course). The 3DS game doesn't have any 3D either, unless you count the splash screen before you boot up the game.
A little quibble though: The games don't share saves, so owning both versions, while nice, is sort of pointless. The main levels are nifty, but once you've bested them there is no fun in doing them all over again. Granted, you can always download community levels on either version, so I guess it doesn't hurt to have both. That said, being Nintendo, I didn't expect them to share saves, but I was hoping to be surprised.
@Jargon Yesterday I tried on my Wii U, and just now I tried on my 3DS.
Either it's now properly uploaded or my 3DS likes you more than my Wii U does.
Starting your stage NOW!
EDIT - Good stuff! I got a little confused during the Pauline section, having her walk back and forth ad nauseum between the spike wall and the pipe area while I struggled to remember that the little green thing is a switch. Haha! Now, make another!
