PLEASE tell me you are joking. Go on Nintendo's Youtube or Facebook page and read the comments on posts advertising NSMB2. They always have a dumb comment like: "will it work in the DSi by cutting the edge off i cant afford a 3ds cuz its the exact same" Or something like that.

yeah, but no one here thinks people are justified for saying those things — we all think they're being silly. and yet for this situation, when the choice was made to support current-gen technology, people have flipped the hell out and call it a bad decision, lol. that was my point.

@Jamouse: really? was that necessary?

@Geonjaha: in terms of games like TWEWY though, the only time you really use buttons is in battle, and you pretty much spam them for the upper screen and direct Neku about/use pins on the lower with gestures from the stylus. they've tweaked the battle system so that it works on the one screen already, so the partner thing is taken care of, but for everything else, I don't see how having a touch-screen is so horrible — especially for DS game ports, since the DS has a touchscreen anyway. Navi brought up Ghost Trick, which is another great example of a game that can be entirely controlled via a touchscreen with no problem and behaves rather well on an iDevice. I can definitely see the issue for stuff like fighters, platformers, or other games that traditionally use buttons for input, but for TWEWY touchscreen controls seem like they'd be pretty natural.

guys, if i was gonna lock the thread, i would've done so already. to be honest we need a place for people who are gonna try out the new version to discuss it anyway, so until it gets way too rowdy I don't see the harm in leaving it open. :/

guys, if all you want to do is get nasty, haul off and start insulting and ranting against your fellow users who are more open to this announcement than yourselves, do it elsewhere. that sort of thing is not kosher here at Nintendo Life, as per our Community Rules.

If I have to clean more bickering and/or in-fighting out of this thread, i may decide to hand down temp-bans. you have been warned.

@kkslider5552000: that's what things like teaser websites are for, to lure in people who would otherwise never have been interested. who can turn down a ticking clock, especially when it was leaked earlier in the week that there would definitely be something for iDevice owners?

@TheKingofTown: ... what is that? the countdown to its availability?

@Geonjaha: how could they not have used imagery and things that would be recognized by TWEWY fans for a TWEWY port, though? that's what's boggling me at the moment. Yes, we all recognized it, but that's because we've played the game. In no way could we be absolutely, positively certain that it was going to be something completely new, because they would've run the same sort of teaser before TWEWY's original release too (if they didn't actually do so... it's been so long and I don't really remember D: ).

I do hope this means we'll get this soundtrack on iTunes, though. mmm, remixes~

well, perhaps if this port revives attention for the game we'll see a sequel come along eventually. at least this way they'll have figured out how to get it playable on an iDevice as well, so they'll be able to hit a wider range of fans once they get around to it finally :3

Moral of the Story: moomoo would rather have been disappointed seven days ago instead of waiting until now to be disappointed.

can we move on now? i'm kinda interested in how having two characters on the same screen will work, e.g. do we have to dodge with shiki/beat/joshua too, or just neku? is there any video of this port up yet?
