    Wooooooooo!

    Hopefully that means VC from 3DS/Wii U will all just be free to redownload on Switch.

    No way for free. "While yes we see that you have already purchased these items, we have decided to charge a small one time .99 fee for each title. Please understand."

    Wait and see. When VC titles start to trickle out for the Switch they will have two prices. One for if it is your first time purchasing it or the special discounted price if you have already bought it on previous devices.

    Expecting Nintendo to give them out for free is silly. We know what they're like.

    Does this also apply if you want to move to a new Switch? I ask because the text specifically mentions "re-linking your Nintendo Account" which sounds more like using the same Switch to me.

    I also can't say that I'm a fan of Nintendo removing content from your purchase history in certain cases. It was bad when Nintendo did it before (Yoshi's Cookie on Wii, apparently Cave Story on DSi and Tetris on 3DS too), when Sony did it with P.T. and when Apple does it with pretty much everything that gets delisted from the App Store. I just hope it doesn't happen all that often.

    Cross-buy, especially retroactive cross-buy with Wii U and 3DS, would be great, but I don't see Nintendo implementing it for Wii U/3DS VC purchases. It might happen going forwards, but at best I'd agree with Golgo that Nintendo will charge a small fee for Switch VC games you own on Wii U like it did going from Wii to Wii U.

    Ain't gonna happen, Kahhyle. If anything they'll make previous buyers pay more because we have been playing those games for months or years. It'll be a "legacy tax" or something equally stupid.

    This is good news. If I call them out for their (almost endless list of) bad moves, I have to give them props for their good ones. Welcome to the 21st century Nintendo.

    I think it will only work on Switch.
    Not with 3DS and Wii U.

    It's about dang time. It was expected, but it's nice that it's verified.

    I agree. You won't get past purchases for free, but I expect them to carry over from here on out. It's good for the future.
