    okay, it's neat, but that's a bad idea, really. Imagine all the kids playing with mommy's credit card.

    There is an option for parental lock and before purchase of anything from the eshop they will ask for password.

    Plus you can just play once everyday for the free tries instead of paying for it. I think the idea is not bad.

    Game play is rather simple & fun~

    This is not pay to win. It's not even close. It's pay to play (more than three times a day).

    People complaining about microtransactions: just play 3 times a day. If you want those badges so badly then obviously microtransactions aren't a problem.

    i don't care about the badges, i am complaining about the facebook shit idea, next we will have hats for mario or pokemon 1.5€ each
    this is a unscrupulous wallet milking, pay to play minigames to win vanity and ego... yes you can play it for free for a limited time every day but it makes me so angry that they try to milk that system
    they could use the play coins thing.... you go on a walk (or shake) and get the icons... but no...

    If you don't care, and it doesn't affect you at all, why are you even complaining? Nintendo's testing something in Japan. For all we know, it won't even reach the West, so it wouldn't affect most of the people on this site. And besides, if they were trying to "milk the system" then they wouldn't even have a free option.

    You can go to a store and get free samples of food. Does that mean you should be mad because they then try to sell you that food?

    So instead of being ripped off by a UFO Catcher at some shopping mall or amusement park, you can now be ripped off from the comfort of your own home.
    Great job, Nintendo.
    :P

    It actually looks like they made it a lot easier than the original version, so that's something.

    Microtransactions instead of play coins?

    For shame Nintendo.

    Are you actually thinking everything that costs money is evil?
