At least, it was great on PC, with mouse/keyboard. I'm a little wary about how the controls translate to WiimoteIR/nunchuk and touchscreen (especially the latter) but it's probably fine. I may double-dip and get it on Wii U just out of curiosity... EDIT: Destructoid reviewed the 3DS version and said that the touchscreen was excellent, so I guess I shouldn't be concerned at all.
Yeah, I saw that last night, I was going to post it here.
Something called The First Skunk Bundle is available for free on Wii U, but it still gives you 30 gold coins on My Nintendo. I'm not sure what the deal is with it, but I tried it last night and it worked for me. When you start the download, you can cancel it if you don't actually want it, and still get the coins. But, you'll still need to have the required free space available and initiate the download to get them.
The First Skunk Bundle, huh? I'll look for it, thanks. Even if I don't really need the coins, I'll take 'em! I've got over 1,000 Gold Coins as-is, but I guess an extra 30 free ones can't hurt. Just wish there was something worthwhile to spend those Coins on.
