    It's always great to give a second opportunity to good games, why not? A lot of people didn't play them in the first chance, besides, sometimes the developers bring bonus and extra content.

    Higher than the Wii u version too? I haven't checked. But a lot of these deluxe ports are higher.

    WiiU version opened just over 100k, so this version opened way higher.

    Well, if you live under a Rock with mommy and daddy and you are willing to make the same mistakes and don't learn about Wii U's history and/or compare sales for future prediction... could be, but most people care about Wii U vs Switch titles sales.

    The comparison is relevant. Plus the game wouldn't exist without the Wii u. So it kind of matters.
