I don't think it's a lot to ask that the same game receive the same updates on all two of its platforms. I know the 3DS isn't in production anymore, but its online infrastructure and eshop are alive and well.

Seems like those who supported the original 3DS release are out of luck.

The 3DS is deader than dead. Do you honestly expect a small indie studio to spend valuable resources on updating their game on a dead platform? Can't tell if you're being serious.

These things don't magically happen. And they don't happen for free. Not to mention that the original 3DS version only cost a measly $5. Half the cost of the Switch version that is the current version on a living platform.

-80s Overdrive is the developer's flagship title, if not their only relevant title.
-"You paid less so your version doesn't deserve updates" is a pretty shitty argument to a customer who helped finance your move to the Switch--especially when that customer actually paid the same $10 (it wasn't always a measly $5 on the 3DS).
-We're not talking about a generations-old dead system, we're talking about a game that was published 3 years ago and , more importantly, is still available for purchase today.

Sorry, I still believe that a bugfix patch should be pushed to the 3DS version, well aware of the lack of magic involved. You're being very condescending because someone expressed a sentiment you didn't agree with, but sure, I'm crying.

The size of the update doesn't change what a hassle it is to get through. From what I've heard getting an update pushed through Nintendo can be a real chore, I can only assume it's much worse on a dead system.
