Me personally, I'd just wait until Super Mario Odyssey comes out later this month, provided if OP has a Switch.
Oh they still haven't said anything? Yikes. Bad call on their part.
Do we know the devs? Like is this their first time making a game ever? YL was ex Rare devs, so at least they've had experience working in this landscape and maybe it was just easier for them to make this change? I don't want to excuse Hat's devs by any means, but if it's some new dev who's never touched game design before this, it might make more sense? Do they have a PR team? My guess is no since they'd probably be all over that from day 1.
However, I think my statement still stands. I think I'd still rather pay for something I'd legitimately enjoy in the end.
