My lord this is a fun game. While the 3DS is gonna be put to sleep soon, (pun intended... You know, putting the console to sleep...), but if you have a 3DS gathering dust in your drawer, pull it out, but this game and have a blast! The music is awesome, Mario's platforming is better than ever, and it's all in 3D! I would recommend using the 3D option on your 3DS, but it's not necessary to. It... Is... Amazing... There's so much replay ability and so your $50 will be worth it!
