I've been trying to go 100% digital with my Nintendo 3DS collection, and surprisingly, it has gone far more smoothly than I believed a Nintendo device to be capable of. In fact, I knew it was too good to be true, and certain enough one glaring flaw raised its head: the eShop was missing Kid Icarus: Uprising.
That problem is nullified as the game can now be downloaded for $34.99, making it $5 cheaper than the average first party Nintendo game.
All that remains to be seen is how Nintendo plans to sell the recommended additional stand needed to play the game comfortably. For those who don't know, Nintendo included a plastic stand in the game's unusually large box as players began complaining about the difficult controls.
I guess downloaders will just have to find a way to cope. The physical version also comes with AR cards that obviously won't be available through a download.
As for the boxed version. Kid Icarus: Uprising just arrived on my doorstep as a birthday gift, so I'm obviously not going to be purchasing it at full price any time soon. However, carrying DS games around anymore is such a bother. Well played, Nintendo. Well played.
It also seems to be going out of print, since Amazon prices have been going up. Get it while it lasts if shelving your games is your thing.
