It's crazy that's it's coming out way earlier on 3DS considering the character parody etc. :/
You also think they would want to push the Wii U version more??
They're not stupid. WAAAAAAAAAY more people have 3DSes than Wii Us.
They win in two different ways:
The people who are really excited for the Wii U version aren't gonna see that the game is out 4 months early and go "no thanks, I DON'T want to be able to play it right now"
And then those same people when the Wii U version comes out aren't gonna go "no thanks, I don't need the one on the console that's dying for games and can play with an actual controller locally with my friends; I'M gonna stick with this handheld version".
It's very mercenary of them, but it's genius. I was having real trouble deciding which version I was gonna get. Now I'm probably gonna get both. I can't be the only one, either, this must be happening for an inconsequential number of people.
