    That's such a pity :/, i know it's because of the game size (like 10-20go) and it could take a lot of time to transfert it but well that sucks, every portable from nintendo had this option

    I'm fairly certain it's on a per-game basis

    Tons of DS games had download play. Very few 3DS games had it, though. It doesn't matter. The Switch isn't a 3DS replacement anyway.

    How would you recieve a game if there's no download play app? I'm fairly sure it's not there.

    Yeah it makes a lot of sense to include in something like MK8D, so we'll see what happens. Could always be implemented down the line, too.

    Nep. They're about 1800 DS games and about 320 DLP compatible games. That's a good 16%.
