Actually that is one of the reasons I bought it. Wanted something to play on the switch. There was little that I wanted to play.

Same reason I'm considering the DB game.

Great game, that one in the article was the remake from the third game, a great remake from one of the best games back then.

Didn't this launch earlier on the Switch than the other systems?

Probably due to the fact the other platforms have a massive library of games and this got over looked. Nice spin though.

Sorry, I have so much else to play on X1 and PS4 I didn't even consider Wonderboy. But I do want to play it eventually.

Well I have a Switch as well, but I agree with Mr. Puggsly. There's a lot more to play on the PS4 and X1 than Switch naturally. They've been on out longer. Switch just launched back in March. Switch will have more games no doubt tho.
