I talked husband into renting it instead of buying it, and we tried it out last night. You can't set it up for a left hander, and being pretty limited on my right side, I was unable to use it. To use it with my left hand, I would have to push right for left, left for right, and up for down. Nope - not going to happen. I'm glad we saved our $$$. But, it looked fun! Oh, well. Can't believe Nintendo totally missed this little tidbit.
