I bought this the other day and I can't stop playing. It is REALLY good. I remember the original game back in the day but I could never beat it. This is a lot easier, but still tons of fun. I'm playing on 3DS for the crisp 240p and d-pad controls, but it's also available on Switch.
I've played about 6 hours, probably nearing the end.
Yep, downloadable. Only ten bucks, or 980yen on the Japanese shop (that's where I bought it). I just finished the game, took me about 8.5 hours. Totally rad from start to finish. You can choose English or Japanese language in the options.
I really recommend playing it on a New 3DS XL, the pixel art looks soooo nice in 240p, and the d-pad controls are great (no d-pad on a Switch).
My son is finally playing his games. He's about to clear Super Mario 3d Land, but he basically watches Youtube and then does it himself. However, this is a massive fucking improvement from him playing something for about 10 minutes and quitting. (It took him a year to realize he didn't have to always be moving). Most parents hate it when their kids play game all day but mine has just started at the age of 10, and I'm viewing it as a bit of normalcy. For Xmas he wants "his" Wii back (which was mine) so I figure we do that for Xmas (basically spend nothing) and he can have a Switch 6 weeks later for his bday.

My twins are 12 now and I can't get my son to play anything but Roblox, and the daughter is still playing Minecraft. Like the house couldn't collapse in an earthquake b/c all the arcade and console games would hold it up.. but they have fuck all for interest in any of it.
The only arcade game they ever showed any interest in was DFK 1.5 b/c they could play ez-mode while ignoring score and have fun with it. Naturally my dumb ass sold that one.
