Let me guess, it will be 10x as expensive as the iOS version?

Maybe the iOS version was actually free Smilie Work that one out Smilie

Hopefully there will be plenty added to make it worth the purchase. Given how the cheapest DS games are £14.99-£19.99, it's always going to be more expensive.

Surely it would have been better off as a DSiWare/eShop game?

Can't say I know much about the original, additions could justify retail I guess. Smilie

No thanks. it should be on eShop, never on cart.

I always wonder... who's being so stubborn in cases like these? Nintendo or the developer?

I was hoping Cave Story and similar free-gone-paid or e-gone-retail games would teach developers a lesson... I guess they don't? Smilie
