    Love the Monkey Ball games, but why did they have to remake Banana Blitz? I only ever tried the Wii version and it was near unplayable due to the forced motion controls.

    Shit. Looking for Super Mario Galaxy port or even remake. That'll never happen though.

    I'm hope I'm wrong.

    Ah, this sucks, I wanted a new game, not a rerelease of the wii one (though it had a good story mode (progression not story lol)).

    Who are all these new characters? I haven't played super monkey ball for 8+ years and don't know any of these except the original monkey, who's that pirate guy?

    If they package Mario Galaxy 1 & 2 together like they did with Mario and Luigi Deluxe, I'd buy it. But each game being ported separately and being $60 wouldn't be cool.

    Man, I still have a wavebird. The one thing I will say is the chunky middle makes them not nearly as comfy as the original GC controller, especially when you have long fingers. Oh, and they tend to drop input if absolutely anything is in the way.

    I'd normally say I'd buy it , but frankly Dolphin and a real WiiMote at 21:9 is just way better than an actual Wii (or Switch), you know? I'd still probably bite, but I'm not sure how star bits would be collected in portable mode. Touchscreen?

    Though they should port 3D World from the WiiU. The WiiU is dead, and all the games for it need to evacuate to a more safe place.

    This would be where motion controls would come in, and the right joy-con has an infrared camera on it.

    If that was 1/2/Deluxe, I'd have buy it. But for those who never played SMB, it can be a nice thing for them.

    Okay, first - the infrared is on the bottom of the controller. I would have to hold the joycons in the wrong hands and upside down. Second, that would require a wireless sensor bar. Third, that would bar the Switch lite from being able to play it, and for Nintendo that's impossible.

    I was wondering why the Switch didn't have this game yet. Can't wait to play it!
