I'm itching to replay Spirit Tracks again, but the 3DS' mic makes it a headache I've heard. How exactly does the game fare on the Wii U?

Sorry I'm late. I've been playing the Wii U version since it was released, and I think it's...alright. It does the job fine, for the most part, although having to hold the gamepad a certain way to emulate the dual screens can be a little awkward, and I sometimes miss the portability.

And while things like restore points are nice to have, I won't gaurantee that the gamepad's microphone will be much of an improvement over your current situation. I was able to finish all of the Lokomo duets without much trouble, but you really have to lean in close and blow directly into the mic or else it won't pick everything up, since it's so tiny.

I also stumbled upon an odd little quirk regarding the game's clock, that causes the prize postcards and shop wares not to update properly. If you're playing the game, and you open the Home menu and select "Close software", that causes the in-game clock to stop at the current time and resume from there the next time you go to play. The only way to update it is by powering down the console completely when you stop playing.
Peace and crackers!

I can't comment on the Wii U version, but I did play it on the 3DS and I had no problems with the mic. I was surprised when I went online afterwards and saw so many complaints. Maybe it's just a DS issue.

Thank you both for the advice. I ended up playing the game on the 3DS with headphones. I actually found that the 3DS microphone worked perfectly for everything in-game, but I needed my headphone's mic to pull off the Duets. Instead of blowing into the mic, though, I just rubbed my left thumb over it while I played the flute with the Stylus. I had next to no trouble with this method and even nailed the final Duet in one go.
