The Gamecube version was the best since it had Link. I loved kicking ass with the Bug Catching Net

"No Wii U version despite Cube version selling better. Clearly Namco don't have faith that anyone will buy it without Link." - That's a popular myth, but a myth is all it is as the PS2 version was the best selling version of the game by a comfortable margin. GC version did sell much higher than expected apparently, but it wasn't the "better" selling version. And as to the second point, I think Namco just don't have any faith in Wii U's ability to make them any money more than anything. Y'know, same as every third party publisher right now.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
