    Nay, in fact N released this game on ios first that's because it thinks it's easy as hell to pirate games on Android.

    Not if you consider the short term versus the long term. It's all about having to do as little total work as possible.

    So how long until it's cracked to play offline?
    Place your bets now!

    I say within 24 hours.

    Not under a rock.
    It may be because of the Android's "meh" security...

    If you're playing this offline you literally have content for 1 hour tops.

    My excitement level:

    January - Super hyped!
    February - Still hyped.
    Early March - Hyped.
    Later March - I just don't give a shit anymore.

    Nintendo took too long to release it on Android. Screw them.

    Since Nintendo felt that exclusivity deal was so damn important maybe I should hold off on purchasing the full game for 3 months. See how they like it if I delay my purchase for this sloppy seconds.

    Nintendo took too long getting it to Android, so I'm pirating the fuck out of it. Don't shaft us next time, fuckers!!!

    This game was put onto the top of my shit list for being the worst example of freemium.

    Nah, Nintendo just thought it would be a good idea to make a 3ds free-to-start game for mobile devices, without learning what free to play games were (as of the apple release).

    If sales are bad on android, we probably will just see regular paid apps from Nintendo.

    Even if someone dumps the full 9.99$ version and cracks it?

    How come? Doesn't the paid version have more worlds?

    Yeah, cuz there is nothing to do offline after you clear all the worlds which doesn't take long, unless you like perfecting scores and such. Online you can race others and gain mushrooms and build your kingdom and stuff.

    It shouldn't be that damn hard to Port over a game. Just change the architecture libraries, and boom. Just recompile it.

    It was never about difficulty in porting. Nintendo made an agreement with Apple.

    Oh yeah, I forgot about that. Then, is that hard to just get over it, sign some legal documents, and Port the damn thing?

    I don't really understand the situation at hand. I don't keep up with apple or Mario, since I personally don't like either. I despise Apple.
