Why buy this when it’s one of the free games with Nintendo online? I bought Donkey Kong for $7 now it’s free. Not like it's a lot of money but just spend $20 and play a lot more. Seems like a bad purchase to me unless you don't have internet but who really doesn't have internet but owns a switch AND travels other places that do have internet to download games? I don't know a single person like that.
