It is really difficult to find this game in Europe, I had to visit 4 huge shops to get it, they have just Wii and 3DS versions everywhere but no Wii U version. Nice game just a "littlebit" overpriced when you consider you need to buy at least 5 more characters to finish it, if you want to open all content you need approx. 400 euro!!! It is also not funny to change characters every 2 minutes because you have to leave your sofa, walk to portal of power and return back. You will save a lot of many and walking up and down if you buy your children 3D Mario instead.

Why doesn't this game use the NFC capabilities of the Wii U gamepad. Why does there need to be the character transporter separately for Wii U in the same way as for the other platforms? Seems totally unnecessary?
