    Screw this- I would have bought this in physical version on Switch, but N O T for $10 more on Switch, especially because I already have it on WiiU.

    • Velen (Not WoW)

      I am totally okay with this cause I never got the original game.

    • Fredy Rodriguez Ortega

      they include the soundtrack in Switch hehe you can sell it later in ebay for like 30

  • Cesar Miyamoto

    is going to be available online only or whos going to carry the game?

  • Red-Tail

    $40?! Nah, that’s pretty much a rip off. I could get this game on Steam or PS4 for 20. Nintendo is really making me regret buying my Switch.

    • Señor Cardgage

      Nintendo didn’t price this game.

      • Velen (Not WoW)

        What Cardgage said. They didn’t price this game.

    • theFooFighter

      The physical release is $40 but the digital version will probably be $20

      • TruExtent

        It already is $20. You can find it on the eShop right now and download it.

        • theFooFighter

          Not the switch version

          • TruExtent

            Excuse me, my mind was on the Wii U version. My bad. In regards to Switch’s digital release, I assume it will be $20 when it releases, just like all the other versions.

    • R.Z.

      Buy it on the eshop then … what’s the big deal ?

  • TruExtent

    AUGH! I’ve been waiting for the Wii U physical, but now with Switch in the equation, I’m stumped on which to get. On the one hand, Wii U is cheaper and has the exclusive second screen functionality which I’ve really been wanting to try. On the other hand, my Switch is slowly getting more use out of me and I get the feeling I’ll want to play on there; plus the fact that it’s an actual cartridge. I was also about to argue on the soundtrack being included on Switch but now I see it’s a pre-order bonus for all platforms. Hmmmmmm… Anyone here want to give me their thoughts and sway me in one direction or another?

    • Señor Cardgage

      If you were playing on the Switch, would you think “Man, I wish I was playing on Wii U”? And vice-versa?

      • TruExtent

        When you put it that way, I think I would be in the case on your example of “Man, I wish I was playing on Wii U”. I get the feeling the second screen functionality would be teasing me from a far if I went with the Switch version. If I went with the Wii U version, I don’t think I’d be teased as much by the portable aspect of the Switch version. Though I will admit my Switch has been very convenient for instant multiplayer and portability uses.

    • Aline Piroutek

      Buy original 4 Switch and “pirate illegal copy” to WiiU. You bought 1 copy of the game.

      • TruExtent

        I do not condone pirating. I will buy my games to support the developers. Even in your scenario, you’re suggesting I download the game which I could still pay for (and cheaper than the physical) and still support the developer. What you’re telling me to do kills the whole point of getting the physical release.

        The most I will do in terms of “pirating” is backing up my old Wii and GameCube games with my hacked Wii; and even then, it mostly for testing with the Dolphin emulator. My Wii U will remain unhacked for the time being.

      • Aline Piroutek

        That’s what I do: I buy 1 original copy of the game, I make use of digital ROMs of the game to run in multiple plataforms like my cellphone emulator and 3DS/WiiU Virtual Console(I’ve bought Megaman VC in the Wii).

  • Fredy Rodriguez Ortega

    Yay !! a 2d metroid is coming to Switch

  • Odali

    I don’t know how to feel about this. On the one hand, I’m happy to see them putting similar collector’s edition across the platforms. On the other hand, and while I understand the additional production costs, I don’t agree with the customer having to suffer the addition price tag to get the same game. Before anyone says “well you can play it on the go”, this is a console feature not a game feature. Additional content like they did with Rime can justify the higher price tag I guess.

    • TruExtent

      I know it might not be much but if a customer doesn’t pre-order the game, the Switch version will be the only version to include a soundtrack CD. Not much considering all the pre-orders will get the soundtrack, and I assume that’s where most of the sales for this game will come from.

  • still waiting for a sale on this and shantae

    • TruExtent

      You could always download the games. Both are 10 bucks cheaper on the eShop than the physical versions.

      • i only download games,
        i’m waiting for an eshop sale on wiiu

        • TruExtent

          Ah, gotcha. While you’re at it, look out for eShop pre-paid card deals. I see then on discount at Best Buy occasionally for 15% or 20% off.

  • Airsh Bornely

    Well I’m glad I held out. Only question is do I get this for Wii U or Switch? I don’t have a Switch yet, but I’ll probably have it before this comes out and would like to get more use for the Switch.

    • TruExtent

      I’ve been knocking this around in my head for a bit as well. As Señor Cardgage told me “would you think ‘Man, I wish I was playing on Wii U’?” or the other way around. Here’s what you (we) need to consider:
      Wii U – exclusive second screen functionality
      Switch – instant portability (and maybe whatever touch screen features the Vita version had, we’d need more details on the Switch version specifics)

  • R.Z.

    I risk having more indies on Switch cartridges than “actual games” … lol ?

    • Khaaaaan

      Hey do you want join to my server in Discord? we’re a small group but fun!

      • R.Z.

        I’m not using Discord or even my computer that regularly so I have to decline, but if I ever get around to use it I’ll get back to you.

        • Khaaaaan
