    $60 is way too much for YK. Gonna wait for either physical release or a discount.

      Totally agree!!
      Its also a huge kick in the balls for kickstarters that supported this and expected a physical game for the wiiU and then got the shaft many times after only to learn that their investment has all come down to this 1’s and 0’s of a product… not even a physical momento for their efforts.
      The least they can do is release a physical game for the fans after all they are attempting to appeal to a retro market and demographic that would appreciate a physical copy… Am I right?

      I feel like the carts current limitations and costs is rearing its ugly head.
